Dollar General - Single Tenant NNN Investment

Dollar General stores just announced a buyout by Kohlberg Kravis Roberts. 8,260 stores across the country going in to the hands of turn-around/restructuring artists. Current plans are to close 400 stores and open 300 in different locations. Then, I'm sure will come the real changes. Possibly selling off stores, closing hundreds of stores, renotiating leases, etc. A corporate signature is wonderful until you end up with KKR slashing and burning. Difficulty is also that most of these stores are in secondary and tertiary locations. Not easy to re-tenant in those areas...
