Shoppers will soon be able to do more with the new Family Dollar mobile app that hits the app store in October.

Family Dollar customers will enjoy a new mobile shopping and saving experience. Featuring a fresh interface and seamless navigation, the app will help shoppers manage coupons using the redesigned wallet feature, explore weekly ads and locate products with intelligent searches.

“The launch of our new Family Dollar app is one more step in the digital transformation currently underway at Dollar Tree and Family Dollar,” said Bobby Aflatooni, chief information officer at Dollar Tree. “We are investing across the enterprise to make shopping with us even easier and more enjoyable. The redesigned Family Dollar app reflects the customer-centric approach we've applied to our digital roadmap to improve the shopping experience for our loyal shoppers and new customers alike."

Future phases of the digital transformation include Family Dollar's in-app e-commerce, personalization capabilities and an evolved rewards experience. These are due in early 2024.
