Dollar General Announces Back-to-School Savings

Back to School Savings at Dollar General

As back-to-school preparations begin ahead of the upcoming academic year, Dollar General will be starting the journey right alongside them. From its customers and employees to the communities it serves in more than 17,000 locations, education is a cornerstone of our culture and our focus on literacy and education transcends throughout our business. 
Dollar General is excited to announce discounts to help educators and parents save on items for the upcoming school year, including:


Dollar General’s commitment to literacy and education is rooted its co-founder, J.L. Turner.  After dropping out of school at 11 to help support his family, Turner was functionally illiterate.  Yet, he strived to learn something new from everyone he met.  In 1993, his grandson and then-CEO Cal Turner, Jr. founded the Dollar General Literacy Foundation to honor his grandfather and support education initiatives.  For the past 28 years, the Dollar General Literacy Foundation has given nearly $200 million to improve more than 14 million people’s lives through literacy.
During the back-to-school season, Dollar General’s mission of Serving Others is more than two words. It’s an embodiment of the Company’s culture and representation of our commitment to literacy and education.
