FedEx to use Dollar General stores for parcel drop-off and pick-up

FedEx Corp. and Dollar General announced today a strategic alliance that will offer new, convenient access to FedEx drop-off and pickup services at thousands of Dollar General stores across the USA.

The effort is designed to increase access for all customers, particularly those living in rural communities.

FedEx and Dollar General plan to begin rolling out the service in more than 1,500 Dollar General stores in late summer 2019, building to a total of more than 8,000 stores by the end of 2020.

The Dollar General alliance will increase the FedEx Retail Convenience Network to more than 62,000 retail locations, more than 90 percent of Americans will ultimately live within five miles of a FedEx hold retail location.
