Dollar General is making it easier for its customers to send and receive money.
The discounter announced that customers are now able to complete Western Union money transfers at more than 15,400 Dollar General stores. Customers can initiate international and domestic money transfers digitally through the Western Union mobile app or on the Western Union site, and then pay in person at Dollar General locations. Consumers can also receive money transfers in-store.
“Dollar General is excited to work with Western Union to help provide value and convenience when customers send or receive money transfers,” said Jason Reiser, Dollar General’s executive VP and chief merchandising officer. “With approximately 75% of the American population within a five-mile radius of a Dollar General, we are uniquely positioned to provide customers with a convenient location to complete their money transfer transactions.”
Dollar General operated 15,472 stores in 44 states as of March 1, 2019.
