Dollar General Corporation announced that it has been advised by Buck Acquisition Corp, a Tennessee corporation ("Buck"), which is indirectly controlled by investment funds affiliated with Kohlberg Kravis Roberts & Co L.P ("KKR"), that Buck has extended the expiration time for the cash tender offer (and related consent solicitation) (the "Tender Offer") relating to the $200 million outstanding aggregate principal amount of 8 5/8% Senior Notes due 2010 of Dollar General (the "Notes"), to 5:00 p.m, New York City time, on July 5, 2007.

The price determination date for the tender offer was also extended to the second business day immediately preceding the expiration date (currently July 2, 2007, unless the expiration date is further extended).
