Unlike a bunch of other retailers, Dollar General stores are actually open on Thanksgiving Day, and that’s when their Black Friday deals first arrive in stores (starting at 7 a.m. local time). But now that we’re past Black Friday 2023, let’s take a look at how all the Dollar General Black Friday deals went down.
Their Black Friday sale always kicks off in stores on Thanksgiving Day, with deal prices running through the Saturday right after Thanksgiving. You can also shop their deals online Friday – Saturday. Select deals are only valid in stores on Thanksgiving from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m.
