  Dollar General Corporation vs Discount, Variety Stores

Dollar General Corporation is a discount retailer in the United States. The Company separates its merchandise into four categories, which includes highly consumable, seasonal, home products and basic clothing. Highly consumable consists of packaged food, candy, snacks and refrigerated products, health and beauty aids, home cleaning supplies and pet supplies; seasonal consists of seasonal and holiday-related items, toys, stationery and hardware; home products consists of house wares and domestics, and basic clothing consists of casual everyday apparel. Dollar General is among the largest retailers of top-quality products made by America's most trusted manufacturers such as Procter & Gamble, Kimberly-Clark, Unilever, Kellogg's, General Mills, Nabisco, Fruit of the Loom, PepsiCo and Coca-Cola. The Company store support center is located in Goodlettsville, Tennessee.

Companies in this category cater mostly to fixed-income and lower income families. With their common thread being they offer either bulk goods at a discount or lower quality, less expensive goods. Their stores include warehouse clubs, closeout chains, book superstores and home improvement warehouses that may have silk flowers, frames, pottery, and party supplies. The discounts usually come from their "warehouse" approach where the company buys the product in bulk and since the consumer also buys in bulk, they're able to save some money.
