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.

I JUST WANT TO RECOMEND A LOCATION THAT WOULD BE A PREMO SPOT TO BUILD A NEW DOLLAR GENERAL . HWY 137 WING ALABAMA (CLOSE TO THE ALABAMA / FLORIDA LINE. THERE ARE NO STORES IN THIS GENERAL AREA FOR A GOOD 10 OR 20 MILES. MIGHT EVEN KNOW SEVERAL PEOPLE THAT WOULD BE WILLING TO SELL LAND TO BUILD ON MAIN HWY 137 WING AL.

I have been to the dogwood Dr Milton Florida location multiple times and it seems one of the employees there either hates her job or is just plain rude at all times. Her name is Christine and always has an excuse for being unable to do something or even help find something, the first couple of times I gave her the benefit of her stating she was new and training to be a manager. Well as a manager you should know your store by now and your customer service should not be so horrible. If this is the type of people this company hired to be the face of their store and manage their day to day operation, I certainly will not return. I am well known in my area by many up and up individuals and I assure the word will be spread about this location and how poorly it’s ran and it’s customers are treated!!!

Boy oh Boy is Mr. Turner turning in his grave for running his beloved store he built all those years into the ground.. All the Executives should be fired for allowing this to happen.. Shame; Shame; Shame on you..

By the way when in the heck are any of your lazy “Customer Service” people ever going to respond back to my email I sent back in 3/19/15.

I reside in Statesville, NC. I just returned from shopping at the Dollar General store at
3341 Taylorsville Hwy, (store #02393) Statesville, NC. Upon walking into the store I viewed a employee (?Name?) /Cashier.(tall man with dark hair) Checking out a customer.. He was on the phone and continued to speak while checking the customer out. I found that quite Rude. I proceeded to shop for my items. This “man” started walking around the store while still on the phone and pacing the aisles. Again, quite unprofessional ! When I was ready to check out he was no where to be found. I’m writing b/c I have been unable to locate the name of this stores manager. Perhaps you could relay my concern to him/her. Thank you. KB

Store #01607 in Alabaster Alabama could use some management training. Apparently and quite loudly reprimanding an employee while several customers were shopping. Even if employee needed to be reprimanded, the manager should do this behind closed doors in a more professional manner. Yelling is not appropriate!! Qeez show some respect if you want respect.

Charging a one dollar cash back fee is absurd! You make enough off of your custmers anyway…can you say RIP OFF??!!

Your Tunnel Hill, Ga location needs some classes in customer service. Obviously you can’t go in and have someone with you and them make a separate purchase. I had 4 coupons and he had 4 and the store manager refused to let me make a purchase and him. W are not married and I feel like he’s a completely new customer! The manager argued for 5 mins with us before I said screw it and left!!

Your New Lexington site is by far one of the worst ran stores I have ever been in. Filthy, cluttered mess. Typically store manager and at least two other employees can be found outside smoking while one stays to maintain the customers with a long line.
I think maybe it’s time for new management.

Rude employees over at the dollar general in lorain ohio on 6th street. Everytime i go in there, they harass me over the loud speaker and then they accused me of stealing. Yall got it on camera, you know im not stealing. I may not be able to make my mind, it is caused by my ADHD it causes me to put things back and take my time when i shop. So this to me is discrimination against poor customers. Then this employee walked up to my husband and told him that she had been watching me on camera and she had been continuing to watch me on camera. Is this how you treat the people that walk into your store? I have been going to this store for 8 years.. Actually maybe longer and never been accused of anything. I spent money everytime i came here never took anything. Your losing a customer for good! Thanku for the rude behavior and rude comments.

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.

PLEASE MOW YOUR YARD!

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.
