Dollar General says starting Tuesday, the first hour of each shopping day will be dedicated to seniors.

The company says they want to give those at most risk of coronavirus a chance to buy the items they need and want.


Other customers are encouraged to plan their shopping around trips around this time.

All stores will also plan to close an hour early to allow employees to clean and re-stock shelves.
