Dollar General Comes to California and $25 Gift Card Giveaway #DGlatino

Great news for California moms and families – Dollar General is opening 50 new stores.  Dollar General is different because it is convenient and affordable.   The stores are typically located in suburban, rural and metropolitan communities.

I recently had the opportunity to shop at a new Dollar General Store in Southern California.  In preparation for my shopping experience, I checked the online site for coupons, discounts and deals.  I clipped the $5 OFF $25 or more at DG coupon on Saturday, 7/14/2012 coupon and a couple of $1 and $2 off coupons for household and beauty products.  I also printed the coupons using the coupon print application provided by Dollar General and saved over $13 at the checkout!

 

The store is well stocked with National name brand food, snacks, school supplies, cleaning supplies, apparel for mom, dad and kids, party supplies and beauty supplies.  Find out more at –> http://www2.dollargeneral.com/About-Us/Grand-Openings/pages/California-es.aspx .  I was able to purchase household products for our home, beauty products,  treats for our puppy and back to school products for my nephews — all at a discounted rate! If I had to do similar shopping at any other store I would have to go to 3 stores.   It’s a one stop shop for household needs for families.  Overall, I had an excellent experience.

 

In addition to giving discounts to shoppers, Dollar General also gives back to the community.   Dollar General is committed to the communities it serves and has a longstanding tradition of supporting literacy and education.  More information about the Dollar General Literacy Foundation can be found at www.dgliteracy.org.

 

To celebrate the opening of additional new stores, Dollar General has provided me with a $25 gift certificate to share with my readers. The deadline for this Giveaway is July 31, 2012.


This giveaway is open to to US entries only. 18 and up. This is part of a sponsored campaign with Latina Mom Bloggers and Dollar General. However, all opinions expressed are my own.
