Dollar General Black Friday


Dollar General's Black Friday ad usually drops the first week of November, and is chock-full of sales that are good for Thanksgiving through the following weekend. Here's what you need to know, including what to watch for and what to skip at Dollar General during Black Friday.

Dollar General's Black Friday sale happens (mostly) in-store and lasts for just a few days.

Dollar General's Black Friday ad states that only some of the deals are available online. The Dollar General Thanksgiving Deal Days sale will take place Nov. 24 - 26, 2022, but early deals will drop in the weeks leading up to the big sale.
