Walmart neighborhood markets are like an inverse dollar general. They closed a whole lot of them, but neighborhood markets tended to be in extremely urban areas where it was difficult to get the footprint for a full Walmart store. Dollar general instead started in extremely rural areas where it was difficult to get enough clients (but easy to get space for a store). They've been moving more urban lately though. Dollar general mix is much more like a mini walmart than a neighborhood market too, not the focus on groceries.
