A couple times a year Dollar General has clearance events to get rid of discontinued and seasonal items. These clearance events are ether a CORE clearance or a seasonal clearance sale. We are here to explain what the difference of these events are and how to score big at these events.

CORE CLEARANCE; CORE clearance is everyday items. These are the everyday items that are included in the store like the shampoos, diapers, and such. These items are normally located in the clearance sections but a lot of times can be found throughout the store in their designated spot. Some of these items are only priced at 10% off the regular price to start the clearance process but during these events they are an extra 50% off. During the CORE clearance all CORE items already starting the clearance cycle will be an extra 50% off.

Seasonal Clearance; it is just what it sounds like, seasonal items. This includes sections such as garden, summer, etc. During these seasonal clearance events these items will be an extra 50% off.

How will I know what is included in these clearance event sales?

The signs posted in store will tell you exactly what is included. You need to read the bottom of the signs as they will say exactly what is included.

Where are these items located in the store? These items can be found in the clearance section and throughout the store. Look for the clearance section in your store and also the orange hang tags throughout the store. Look for the orange stickers on the clearance items.

Do all stores participate? Most stores do but as every sale the participating stores and items in the stores vary by location. The best thing that you can do is scan the items in store to check prices.

Can I use coupons on the clearance items? Yes! as long as the coupon itself does not exclude clearance items, you can use coupons.

There is a clearance event coming up, what should I do to prepare?

scope out your clearance section. Take pictures of the items in that clearance section along with the UPC codes so that after 2 am EST you can check the app the start of the day to see if they have changed price. Even if the app is not showing price, you can check with your store because a lot of times the stores have to override prices.

The sale starts in the morning, what should I expect? Get there early! These clearance sales bring all the DG shoppers out. Everyone loves a good clearance sale. Know what you are doing! Have your app open and ready to scan.
