Dollar General: More Stores in California and a $25 GC #Giveaway! #DGLatino - Sammy Makes Six

Dollar General: More Stores in California and a $25 GC #Giveaway! #DGLatino




I have been so excited about the new California Dollar General openings, that we have now made it a point to stop by our closest store every time we can. Unfortunately for us, the closest store is currently in Montclair, which is almost an hour away. We can only go when we are on our way to LA, so I am really looking forward to the new locations coming soon.

In case you are new to Dollar General, let me give you some background. 
Around for more than 70 years, Dollar General has been providing customers with great values and savings on highly used items like; snacks, food, health and beauty aids, basic apparel, household goods, cleaning supplies and a lot more. With more than 10,000 stores in 39 states, Dollar General has more retail locations that any other retailer in America! The good thing for us in California, is that Dollar General has now opened a few locations here and they have a lot more to come. A total of 50 stores are planned, so there will surely be a store near you soon, so you can take advantage of the values and specials.


Dollar General carries not only many private brands, they also carry products from tried and true brands that we all trust:

Procter & Gamble, Kimberly-Clark, Unilever,
Kellogg's, General Mills, Nabisco, Hanes, PepsiCo and Coca-Cola.

What I like and find more convenient about shopping at Dollar General is the variety of items you can find. You can find baby and kids goods starting at ridiculously low prices. 


You can find that make-up item you just ran out of and need asap. While this was not a huge selection, it was fair and we got the mascara, lip gloss, foundation and powder that Munkey had to have. So they definitely have the basics and a little more. 


You can find a nice selection of household goods and a ton of cleaning supplies which is what we really stock up on. And I love the Dollar Section where I found many brand name items for just a buck. Sorry there is no picture of it, I guess I was busy loading up my cart with children's shampoo, hand washes and band-aids. All items that the kids go through super fast and that I don't want to spend a lot on. 

Dollar General is a convenient way to get all of your shopping done in one location and save money while doing so. Find a store in your are by going to the store locator and while there don't forget to sign up for special deals that arrive straight to your email or via text.


And the best part is that Dollar General is once again giving one of our readers a $25 gift card so they can go shopping!! YAYYYYY...!
