Helping Families Save More

Because of the coronavirus pandemic, Dollar General is determined to help its customers get more bang for their buck this holiday season. 

“With the holidays quickly approaching, we are thrilled to provide customers with a special, one-day savings event in stores and online to provide customers with an opportunity to shop and save early this season,” Emily Taylor, Dollar General’s executive vice president and chief merchandising officer, said in a statement. 

“This year’s holiday product assortment will continue to deliver on the value and quality expectations our customers trust us to provide.”

She continued, “Whether customers are looking to start holiday decorating, get an early start on gift-giving for everyone on their list or stock their pantry, we look forward to sharing amazing offers and helping customers stretch their budgets to celebrate the upcoming seasons affordably.”

Like Target, Walmart, and other major retailers, businesses are trying to offer sales prior to Black Friday in order to prevent major crowds inside stores.
