To support its strong growth and fill current vacancies, Dollar General (NYSE:

distribution center locations. Career fairs to recruit candidates will be held
throughout the month in the 40 states the company serves.

“Dollar General is seeking to hire people with the attitude, aptitude and
ambition to build a career with us and support our mission of Serving Others,”
said Rick Dreiling, Dollar General’s chairman and CEO. “With growth and
development opportunities, industry-recognized training programs and a culture
