Local Stores Setting Aside the First Hour For Seniors To Keep Them Safe

From Dollar General-

“In keeping with our mission and our ongoing commitment to serve our communities, we are dedicating the first hour of each day to seniors. We appreciate our customers’ understanding of our decision and request they visit our stores later in the morning to allow at-risk populations the ability to purchase the items they need at affordable prices,” Todd Vasos, Dollar General’s CEO, said, in a statement.

The company also said that stores will close an hour earlier than their posted closing times to allow staff to clean their stores.
