Dollar General stores setting aside time for senior shoppers
Published 12:27 pm Tuesday, March 17, 2020
Dollar General Corporation plans to dedicate the first hour of each shopping day to senior shoppers, as well as amend store operating hours beginning today.
Dollar General is strongly encouraging that the first hour of operations each day be dedicated solely for the shopping needs of senior customers, who are one of the groups most vulnerable to the COVID-19 coronavirus.
Dollar General wants to provide at-risk customers the ability to buy what they need and want at the beginning of each day to avoid busier and more crowded shopping periods.
Other customers are encouraged to plan their shopping trips around this window of time to allow the most susceptible customers in local communities the ability to shop during the first hour that stores are open.
Additionally, all stores plan to close one hour earlier than current close times to allow employees to clean and re-stock store shelves, as well as for their health and wellbeing. Stores will continue to maintain current opening hours.
Dollar General stores are in Salisbury, Spencer, China Grove, Rockwell, Woodleaf, Kannapolis and Linwood.
