One of the most ubiquitous and popular chain of stores is making it easier for its senior customers to shop as well as changing its overall hours during the COVID-19 outbreak.

Dollar General, which has several stores in the Highland Lakes, “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,” according to a media statement.

The initiative begins March 17.

The move allows senior customers to get what they need earlier in the day and avoid the higher-traffic times.

Dollar General officials also said they are also closing stores one hour earlier than normal so employees can clean the store and restock shelves.

  1. Let us join in prayer for all the local businesses, employees, churches, schools and all who are struggling for the safety of their members, guests, and staffs. And let us give thanks for God’s presence & healing powers as we negotiate our journey together through these uncharted waters.
