CADOTT Wis. (WLAX/WEUX) – A business in Cadott is forced to shut down for safety issues. The Dollar General was ordered by the fire department to close temporarily due to excessive amounts of overstock items in the aisles and in the shipping and receiving area.

The Cadott Police Chief said in a Facebook post; “The fire department assessed the overstock is a risk to employees and customers by limiting space in aisles for people to escape in an emergency situation.”

Dollar General management says employees and property have been threatened due to the store being closed. The chief says these threats are illegal, and anyone making them are subject to arrests and fines. Dollar General says staff members are working to reopen the store as quickly as possible.
