When you go to the grocery store, you can save $3.50 by shopping online
NEW YORK — The dollar general Digital has rolled out an online store that allows shoppers to pay for grocery items with the digital equivalent of a credit card.
The online shop, which launched Monday, is available in all 50 states and Puerto Rico.
The service will be available from the start of next week, according to Dollar General Digital.
The digital store will be the largest online-only grocery store in the world.
Dollar General said it’s the first grocery store to offer the service.
The company says that customers can shop online at checkout, and can pay by card or credit card at the checkout.
The store will have items for sale that are not available through conventional retail stores.
It will be open for three months.
The Dollar General store is located in the Bronx, where it is part of a chain of digital stores.
The new online store comes as the United States is embroiled in a dispute with China over the contested South China Sea, which Washington says is in the national interest.
Beijing says it has territorial claims to the area and wants Washington to recognize it.
Washington has argued that China has a legitimate claim over the islands and other features of the South China sea.
China has repeatedly denied any claims and has called the dispute over territorial claims between the two nations a “joke.”
