Dollar General History

Dollar General was founded in 1939 by Cal Turner.  The first store was located in Scottsville, KY and was called J.L. Turner and Sons.  The first store actually called Dollar General was opened in 1955 with the idea that all items in the store would be $1 or less.  The idea took off quickly and all J.L. Turner stores were changed to Dollar General’s.  The chain reached 29 stores by 1959.

J.L. Turner died in 1964 and Dollar General went public in 1968.  In 1977, Cal Turner, Jr. took over as president of the company, making him the third generation to run the company.  Cal ran Dollar General until 2002.

In 2007, Dollar General was acquired by private equity firms and taken private.  2 years later, in 2009, the company was made public via IPO.

Today, the company has over 10,000 stores in 40 US states.  The Dollar General corporate office is located in Goodlettsville, TN.

Worker at the Dollar General Store very disrepectful to me just because I showed him my recepit for my purchase which was buy dog food get the treats free but it did not give me the treats free it charged me. I told him whatever he needed to do refund the whole price or give me the difference was fine because I was in a hurry that my husband was driving me crazy wanting me to hurry and he mumbled I think he already did. I want something done about this. I shop at DG all the time and I am not rude to the cashiers and I should be respected. Please contact me.

Dollar General #11362 – MOW YOUR YARD!!!
My neighbors and I have worked hard and poured our resources and energy into building a thriving and clean neighborhood .
What does it take for a private, commercial entity like yours to mow your yard?

This is a simple, basic activity that every homeowner performs weekly.

I visited the Whitehall WV store, I believe store 900. I was really frustrated by the store manager who is a college drop-out and only twenty four. She dodges customer complaints by telling the customer she doesn’t know and then brushes them off and disappears. She is rude and says things like if u dont like it dont shop here. She has ran descent employees that have tried to make a difference. She is by far the worst manager in the Fairmont area. The store looks like a pig pen wit dirt floors. The employees seem like they are tired of the embarrassment of their manager.
