Dollar General Tries to Make Healthy Food More Accessible
Dollar General is starting to sell yogurt, nuts, protein bars, veggie snacks, and coconut water to meet customer demand for healthier choices. Dollar General has recently added around 125 "better for you" items to its shelves in 2,700 stores. The products appear under Dollar General's Good & Smart house brand, and the store also carries Annie's, Back to Nature, Honest, Nature Valley, and Kashi brands. On Tuesday, Dollar General said the initiative was performing better than it expected, and it has plans to roll out to more stores next year.
