Discount retailer Dollar General has purchased for $468,000 a one-acre parcel in Haddam to erect a new store, brokers say.

DG Capital LLC, an affiliate of the Goodlettsville, Tenn., chain, bought 85 Bridge Road from HWGA LLC, said seller's broker Lyman Real Estate.

The site fronts Bridge Road, which leads to the Goodspeed Opera House in East Haddam.

A timetable for opening the Haddam location and other details were not disclosed.

Dollar General has more than 14,000 stores in 44 states.
