Dollar General Teams with DoorDash for Same-Day Delivery from 9,000+ Stores

Dollar General is the latest retailer to dive into delivery, partnering with DoorDash to offer same-day service from more than 9,000 stores — and with plans to expand to more than 10,000 locations by December 2021. The two companies first partnered for a 600-store pilot program in summer 2021.

Shoppers can order products, including food, snacks and cleaning supplies, for same-day delivery through the DoorDash app or website. Dollar General is not requiring a time slot or minimum order value, and through Nov. 24 customers can get 30% off their first Dollar General order where the subtotal is at least $20.

“At Dollar General, we strive to make shopping hassle-free and affordable, and our partnership with DoorDash reiterates DG’s commitment to provide convenient and contactless options,” said Emily Taylor, EVP and Chief Merchandising Officer at Dollar General in a statement.

Dollar General’s aggressive move into the delivery space comes right on the heels of rival Dollar Tree’s partnership with Instacart for same-day delivery from 7,000 locations, which was announced earlier in November. Dollar Tree’s other banner, Family Dollar, unveiled a similar offering from 6,000 of its brick-and-mortar stores in February 2021.


With COVID concerns still keeping some consumers away from brick-and-mortar stores, retailers from several verticals have jumped on the delivery bandwagon in recent months, including:
