Merchandise Content Disclaimer
Product information accessed through the Websites and/or App is obtained from claims made by the Product’s manufacturer. On occasion, manufacturers may alter their labels so the actual product packaging and materials may contain different information than that shown on the Websites and/or App, and thus we cannot guarantee the accuracy, completeness or timeliness of any product information. We recommend that you do not solely rely on the information presented on the Websites and/or App and that you always read labels, warnings and directions before using or consuming any product. For additional information about a product, please contact the manufacturer. We assume no liability for inaccuracies or misstatements about any third-party manufacturer’s products.

We cannot guarantee the total quantity you have ordered for any single product will be in-stock and available when we begin picking your order. Products may be discontinued or sold out between placement of your order and when a Dollar General employee begins to pick your order.
In some cases, we may institute a minimum order value on a DG Pickup order. Minimum order values may change based on the location of a participating Dollar General® retail store.
Substitutions: We will only provide a product substitution for items in your DG Pickup order if you have selected to accept substitutions for those items during the checkout process. Not all items in your DG Pickup order will have a substitution available. Some substituted items may not be eligible for discounts and offers that were applicable to the original items in your DG Pickup Order. You will receive an email letting you know which items from your order have been substituted and the products we have substituted them with.

Payments: All payment information you provide must be truthful and accurate. Providing any untruthful or inaccurate information constitutes a breach of these Terms.

DG Pickup accepts only credit or debit cards. Cash, check, EBT and gift cards cannot be accepted for DG Pickup transactions. Digital coupons may be applied to a DG Pickup transaction if the user meets the purchase requirements; paper manufacturer coupons are not accepted for DG Pickup transactions.
When you place a DG Pickup order, a hold will be placed on your debit or credit card for the total estimated amount of your order. The hold will reflect product pricing at time of order placement. The total estimated amount will also reflect price adjustments for discounts, taxes, and government fees (such as bottle deposits, bag fees, etc., if applicable) based on the retail location you select.
As soon as your order has been picked and staged, we will charge your payment card for your purchase. The final price will reflect product pricing, as set forth below, as well as price adjustments for discounts, substitutions, taxes, and government fees (such as bottle deposits, bag fees, etc. if applicable), based on the applicable retail location.
If you do not retrieve your DG Pickup order on the scheduled date, the charge on your debit or credit card will be reversed. Please note, this reversal may take several business days to process.
Pricing: Pricing for DG Pickup items will be the same prices as if you shopped in the store at which you collect the items. Some item prices may change between the time you place your order and the time we process it for pickup. In such event, we will charge you the lower price. For instance, if an item is offered on a temporary discount when you place your order and the discount period ends before your retrieve your order, you will be charged the discounted price. If the price of your selected item is reduced after you place your order and is still reduced on the date you pick up your order, you will be charged the discounted price. Please note that, if we substitute an item in your DG Pickup order, you will be charged the retail price of the substituted item and not the retail price of the original item in your DG Pickup order, regardless of any change in price applicable to the original item in your DG Pickup order.
Digital Receipt: For all DG Pickup purchases, you will automatically be emailed a digital receipt to the email address you provided when you created your account. Your order complete email will act as your DG Pickup order receipt.
Returns: If you are not satisfied with any item you purchase via a DG Pickup order, you may return it per the returns policy listed in the Dollar General® retail store where you picked up your order. Returns for purchases made via DG Pickup will be processed using your return barcode, which can be located on the bottom of your digital receipt or within your order history in the account section of the DG App or under Track My Order within the Sign-In menu on the website.

Except as may be required by law, Dollar General undertakes no obligation, and specifically disclaims any duty to update or revise any forward-looking statements to reflect events, information or circumstances arising after the date on which the forward-looking statements were made.

If you intend to seek arbitration you must first send written notice (“Notice”), by first class or certified mail, to Dollar General – Law Department, 100 Mission Ridge, Goodlettsville, TN 37072. If Dollar General intends to seek arbitration, Dollar General will send Notice to the mailing or billing address associated with your account. The Notice must describe the nature and basis of the Claim and the specific relief sought, all of which in sufficient detail to permit the other party to evaluate the Claim. If the parties cannot reach an agreement within sixty (60) days from the receipt of the Notice, either party may initiate arbitration proceedings. Absent the agreement of the parties after a demand for arbitration is made, neither the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) nor JAMS will be permitted to administer any aspect of any arbitration relating to any Claim. The Federal Rules of Civil Procedure (the “FRCP”) and the Federal Rules of Evidence (both of which are accessible via links at www.uscourts.gov/RulesAndPolicies/...) shall apply to and must be followed and enforced by the appointed arbitrator in any arbitration proceedings. If any of the rules or procedures of any arbitrator are different than or inconsistent with those required to be applied or followed under these Terms, then these Terms shall supersede and control, and must be followed as written. Each party will each pay the costs and fees for their respective attorneys’ prosecution or defense of any Claim being arbitrated, subject to any remedies to which either party may later be entitled under applicable law.
YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT ALL CLAIMS WILL BE GOVERNED BY THE LAWS OF THE FEDERAL ARBITRATION ACT (FAA), THE APPLICABLE LAWS OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, AND THE LAWS OF THE STATE OF TENNESSEE, WITHOUT REGARD TO ITS CHOICE OF LAW PRINCIPLES. UNLESS YOU AND DOLLAR GENERAL AGREE OTHERWISE, IN THE EVENT THAT IT IS DETERMINED OR THESE TERMS PROVIDE THAT A CLAIM SHOULD NOT PROCEED THROUGH ARBITRATION, YOU AGREE THAT ANY CLAIM OR DISPUTE (WITH THE EXCEPTION OF A CLAIM OR DISPUTE APPROPRIATELY LODGED IN ANY SMALL CLAIMS COURT) SHALL BE RESOLVED IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE MIDDLE DISTRICT OF TENNESSEE, AND YOU SUBMIT TO THE PERSONAL JURISDICTION OF THAT COURT. IF SUBJECT MATTER JURISDICTION (INCLUDING DIVERSITY JURISDICTION) DOES NOT EXIST IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE MIDDLE DISTRICT OF TENNESSEE FOR ANY SUCH CLAIM, THEN THE EXCLUSIVE FORUM AND VENUE FOR ANY SUCH ACTION SHALL BE THE COURTS OF THE STATE OF TENNESSEE LOCATED IN DAVIDSON COUNTY, AND YOU SUBMIT TO THE PERSONAL JURISDICTION OF SUCH COURTS. YOU AND DOLLAR GENERAL BOTH WAIVE YOUR RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL, UNLESS SUCH WAIVER IS UNENFORCEABLE. YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT EACH PARTY SHALL PAY THE FEES AND COSTS OF ITS OWN ATTORNEYS, EXPERTS, AND WITNESSES INCURRED IN CONNECTION WITH ANY ARBITRATION OR COURT PROCEEDING BETWEEN THE PARTIES NOTWITHSTANDING ANY PREVAILING PARTIES ATTORNEYS’ FEES PROVISION THAT MAY BE PART OF ANY STATUTE UNDER WHICH YOU MAY BRING A CLAIM.
THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT SHALL SURVIVE ANY TERMINATION OF THESE TERMS, AND ANY AMENDMENTS TO THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT SHALL BE PROSPECTIVE ONLY AND SHALL NOT AFFECT ANY PENDING CLAIM OR ARBITRATION PROCEEDING.
