July 27, 2016 – After months of speculation, the news is out and confirmed, Dollar General has bought the empty former Walmart building in Luther.
From a news release sent from Dollar General:
“Dollar General announced it completed the purchase of four former Walmart Express locations in the Oklahoma City area today, including the empty store in Luther.
Dollar General anticipates relocating an existing store location into each of the purchased sites by October 2016.
These are part of 41 former Walmart Express locations across 11 states the major discount retailer purchased. Local store locations include: 2325 Seran Drive Wewoka OK 1600 West Highway 66 Stroud OK 19250 East Highway 66 Luther OK 124 Columbia Street Okemah OK
“Dollar General is excited to add these locations to our existing store base.

Communities served by the newly-relocated stores will enjoy a fresh DG16 layout with additional sales floor square feet, complete with expanded offerings such as fresh meat and produce, all designed to make shopping easier for customers. Dollar General also intends to operate the fueling stations in these locations.”
