“Dollar General's continued growth reflects our customers' increasing satisfaction with our everyday low prices and convenience,” said Rick Dreiling, Dollar General's chairman and CEO. “Further, 2013 will mark another growth milestone as we plan to open the organization's 11,000^th store before the year's end when we will begin our 75^th anniversary in 2014.”

The Paychecks for Patriots program helps resolve the challenges of unemployment facing veterans by equipping the military community with the resources to better access available job opportunities at committed companies.

We are excited to welcome new talent with a passion for the retail business,” said Bob Ravener, executive vice president and chief people officer.
