A Massive Retailer Now Makes Change to 5,000 Locations

A massive retailer now makes change to 5,000 locations by offering more produce options across the nation, sources report.

Dollar General now offers the top 20 items sold in traditional grocery stores, covering about 80 percent of the produce categories grocers provide, per a company press release.

The company has a variety of fruits and vegetables including tomatoes, onions, apples, strawberries, potatoes, sweet potatoes, lemons, limes, salad mixes, and more, reports The-Sun.

The discount giant claims the move is aimed at offering its communities “access to fresh, affordable, and convenient food options,” said Emily Taylor, executive vice president and chief merchandising officer at Dollar General.

“We have exceeded our goal of having 5,000 total stores with fresh produce by January 2024.

We’re proud to leverage our footprint to meet the need for healthy food options in more communities than any other retailer across the US,” Emily added.

Dollar General also revealed in a statement that the company has partnered with AI company Shelf Engine.

The brand provides retailers with technology to “improve perishable food forecasting and ordering,” the statement said.

Dollar General is leaning on the partnership to help with stocking produce levels, automating the ordering process, and offering customers with freshest food.

The union means that nearly millions of shoppers will see more produce as 80 percent of Dollar General stores serve communities of 20,000 or fewer people.

Since most retailers have some form of rewards program, Dollar General has followed suit.

These digital coupons can be combined with a single manufacturer coupon for the same item in order to maximize your savings.

Manufacturer coupons are issued by a manufacturer and offer free items or a specific discount off the purchase price of one or more of their products.

A retailer with 507 locations will now close its anchor store after 45 years with liquidation sales underway, sources report.

Macy’s is permanently closing another of its 507 remaining nationwide department stores, The-Sun reports.

Liquidation sales are underway and will last eight to twelve weeks.

Macy’s has announced the closure of its store at Tallahassee’s Governor’s Square Mall in Florida.

A final date has not yet been shared, although it is expected to close in early spring, as per local station WCTV.

Macy’s is an anchor store of the mall and has been there in one form or another since 1979.

It originally opened as Maas Brothers, converting to Burdine’s in 1991, and then Burdine’s-Macy’s from 2003 to 2005, and has been just Macy’s ever since.

“The decision to close a store is always a difficult one, but Macy’s is grateful to have served our customers and the community,” a spokesperson told WCTV.

A clearance sale is currently underway and is expected to last eight to twelve weeks.

Once the Tallahassee store is gone, the nearest Macy’s in Florida will be over 180 miles away in Ocala.

Approximately 40 store employees have been affected by the closure, reports The-Sun.

Many shoppers in the state capital were disappointed to hear that their local store is closing down.

“Sad to see the decline of a one-time retail leader,” wrote one on X.

“I’ll miss the Tallahassee store!” posted another.

The Tallahassee store is one of five locations affected by the latest round of store closures announced by Macy’s.

A total of five stores are being shuttered as the company transitions to a new CEO, former Macy’s president Tony Spring.

The other four locations to close are in Arlington, Virginia; San Leandro, California; Lihue, Hawaii; and Simi Valley, California.

Macy’s has closed 100 stores since 2020, many of which were located in shopping malls.
