Here are some helpful tips for shopping Dollar General during the coronavirus pandemic:
Dollar General hours
Dollar General hours have changed. While opening hours remain the same, stores are closing an hour early to give employees enough time to restock shelves, clean stores, and care for their own well-being. Check your local Dollar General hours because they may vary by location.
Senior shopping hours
As of March 17, the first hour that stores are open is designated for senior and at-risk customers. Dollar General is encouraging everyone who is able to wait the extra hour, do so to ensure the stores are not crowded.
Dollar General supply and shopping limits
Dollar General is taking seriously the responsibility to continue providing for customers with everyday essentials. In efforts to make sure everyone has what they need, there’s a limit of three for all paper products, hand sanitizer, and wipes purchases.
Dollar General stores only get one or two trucks with new supplies each week. The staff restocks shelves daily with what they have available. Even with this effort, many essential items are in short supply and may not be available. Dollar General is actively working with their vendors to get additional supplies and put them out on shelves as fast as possible.
As of now, no changes in the return policy have been made. Read up on the Dollar General return policy here.
Dollar General pickup and delivery
Store pickup is not currently a service Dollar General offers.
You may place an order online for delivery, but you’ll receive your order through regular standard ground shipping. Costs are based on the weight of your purchase and starts at $4.99. It’s also important to note that digital coupons cannot be used on online orders.
Dollar General jobs and staffing
Dollar General is welcoming anyone to apply for their hundreds of job openings across the U.S., even if you know working for them would be temporary. Full- and part-time positions are available to work in stores, distribution centers, and in their private fleet network.
