    In honor of Veterans Day and all of our friends who've served. Thank you for everything that you do!

  • Every day, we hear stories of our DG family leading with compassion and kindness. To celebrate these moments, we launched the DG Kindness campaign. This week’s featured act of DG Kindness is from Breanna Louden from Store #04365 in Lake Butler, Florida! Two of the store’s daily shoppers, Josh and Shannon, recently had a baby. The baby was premature, and the family was not quite prepared for her early arrival. Breanna struck up a conversation with Josh and they swooned over pictures of baby Victoria. In the true spirit of Serving Others, Breanna came in the next day with a bag of preemie and newborn baby clothes to donate to the family. Now every day when Josh and Shannon visit the store, Breanna and her team members are excited to hear updates about baby Victoria.
