Other discounts offered at the same time include 30% off via digital coupons for Dollar General employees who continue to work in order to keep goods available to customers. These savings are currently available and will continue to apply through May 4. The coupon markdown applies only to Dollar General's private brands. This is in addition to $35 million in bonuses provided to its employees

Dollar General also says it will continue observing the development of the COVID-19 outbreak. Depending on what happens during April, it may opt to further extend the 10% discount period for first responders, healthcare workers, and the National Guard.
