Beginning TODAY, March 17, Dollar General is dedicating the first hour of their operating hours solely to their senior customers. From 8AM - 9AM, senior shoppers, who are one of the groups most vulnerable to the COVID-19 coronavirus will be allowed to shop in peace and safety!
Dollar General wants to provide these at-risk customers with the ability to purchase items they need and want at the beginning of each day to avoid the busier and more crowded shopping periods.
A statement from Dollar General CEO, Todd Vasos says:
In keeping with our mission and our ongoing commitment to serve our communities, we are dedicating the first hour of each day to seniors. We appreciate our customers’ understanding of our decision and request they visit our stores later in the morning to allow at-risk populations the ability to purchase the items they need at affordable prices. During these unprecedented times, Dollar General is diligently working to meet the ongoing needs of our customers and communities. We are proud to live our mission and provide customers with everyday low prices on the household essentials that are used and replenished most often.
