Goodlettsville, Tnn (WDHN) – Dollar General Corporation announced plans to dedicate the first hour of each shopping day to senior shoppers, as well as amend store operating hours beginning March 17, 2020. 

Beginning Tuesday, March 17,2020, Dollar General is strongly encouraging that the first hour of operations each day be dedicated solely for the shopping needs of senior customers. In keeping with the Company’s mission of Serving Others, they want to provide these at-risk customers with the ability to purchase the items they need and want at the beginning of each day. This was they can 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 our 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.
