Family Dollar Prepares to Launch New Mobile App Experience
New Family Dollar mobile app is first phase of enterprise-wide digital transformation
CHESAPEAKE, Va. – Sep 15, 2023 – Shoppers will soon be able to do more with the new Family Dollar mobile app that hits app store shelves in October. Family Dollar customers will enjoy a completely new mobile shopping and saving experience. Featuring a fresh interface and seamless navigation, the app will help shoppers effortlessly manage coupons using the redesigned wallet feature, explore engaging weekly ads, and easily 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, Dollar Tree, Inc. “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 app features in early 2024 like in-app e-commerce, personalization capabilities, and an evolved rewards experience – as well as a Dollar Tree mobile experience customers are seeking.
“At Family Dollar, we wake up every day focused on how we can help our shoppers do more and save more, and this app is one more way we’ll be able to deliver on that promise,” said Emily Turner, Chief Marketing Officer, Dollar Tree, Inc. “We believe this new user experience will not only appeal to our customers, but to brands who want to promote their products to our millions of customers through Chesapeake Media Group, our retail media network.”
Digital consultancy Publicis Sapient was selected to lead the program, enabling Family Dollar to offer a premier mobile experience platform. “We are proud to support Family Dollar in the launch of its new mobile experience using our core capabilities (Strategy, Product, Experience, Engineering, and Data & AI),” said Sudip Mazumder, SVP, Retail Industry Lead, North America at Publicis Sapient. “The work is designed to offer exceptional usability and a best-in-class customer experience.”
