She also confirmed that “due diligence” is underway for another Dollar General store on the Rough & Ready Highway in the “95975” zip code. No final decision has been made, but I wouldn’t be surprised if it goes forward. An opening wouldn’t be until 2015.
“Rough and Ready is located in Nevada County, California, just a short drive west of Grass Valley,” as the Chamber website states. “Rough and Ready provides ideal country living, and yet we are reasonably close to metropolitan areas.”
