FedEx has announced a strategic alliance with Dollar General that will offer new, convenient access to FedEx drop-off and pickup services at thousands of Dollar General stores. 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.

By leveraging Dollar General’s rural store footprint, more than 90% of Americans will live within approximately five miles of a FedEx hold retail location.

“Dollar General is the perfect retailer to help us meet the growing need for convenient, secure drop-off and pickup options in a variety of rural communities,” said Scott Harkins, Senior Vice President, Customer Experience Marketing, FedEx Services.
