MoneyGram Adds Dollar General To Agent Network

MoneyGram (NYSE:MGI), a leading global money transfer company, announced it signed a multi-year agreement with Dollar General to offer its money transfer services in Dollar General’s more than 10,000 stores throughout the United States. Under the agreement, Dollar General will offer MoneyGram’s in-lane money transfer service.

“Our customers rely on Dollar General for convenience when purchasing items at everyday low prices,” said Todd Vasos, Dollar General’s executive vice president, division president and chief merchandising officer. “The partnership with MoneyGram is a great fit for Dollar General and it further delivers checkout convenience to our customer.”
