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.

Your store in Toledo Ohio on Secor Rd near Alexis “redeemed” my $5 off $25 mobile coupon on 5/18/15. When I got home (within 2 minutes of the store) I checked my receipt & the $5 was not taken off my total. When I called to question it, I was told that I had to bring all of my items back to the store be re-rung & have the coupon redeemed. I have a toddler & to pack him up along w/all of my items is ridiculous! Why they couldn’t just issue a $5 refund or even store credit is beyond me. We are loyal & faithful customers of this store until today, from now on, we will be doing business elsewhere.

Hello, This is about shopping carts, the Dollar General on Lafayette in Terre Haute Indiana, needs some badly. There is not one in the store, as people that do not have cars, walk off with them all the time, and they are all gone. This is hard on the elderly. I was in there the other day, and a elderly man, was having a real hard time, with the basket he was carrying. If you can, please help them to get carts. Linda

I live in Battle Creek, MI and the Dollar General on West Michigan Avenue is the worst I have ever been in. It is muggy, crowded, and there are boxes of merchandise all over the place. The employees look like homeless people with green and brown teeth and the so-called manger looks like a prostitute. I do not know who these new people are but they need to get some of the other employees back; at least some of them brushed their teeth and bathed occasionally.

This is a complaint regarding “Customer Service @ Wis Rapids, WI Dollar General location.
This store needs ” New-Management”. The store manager has a serious “Attitude” disorder. She is not friendly, constantly complains & rips into the employees in front of customers..Who wants to see or hear that? If she properly trained the employees & was passionate about “Her” position her employees would be able to perform better. I was in the store on Tues. 5/12/15..there was a new employee trying to do her job & this manager ripped items from (new empl’s) register & yelled at her. The mgr is chking out customers at the other register while the new empl was tidying up the mess on the counters etc., & the mgr started in on her again..come to find out this was the 1st day on the job & to be treated as such @ any time is inexcusable. You as a corporate office needs to have your stores in better standards, the stores are a mess & you can’t hardly walk through, the re-stocking should b/done when the store is’s a mess. My concern is also as to how the employees are being treated & pd. Min. wage doesn’t work @ any location..but no one deserves to b/humiliated for any reason..Get her (mgr) out of there..unless your company doesn’t care about “People”, the people that keep your store in business!!!! I could do a much better job making that store a success..because I understand “People”…If I ever encounter this situation again I will report this as abuse…..I’m sure that you want to correct these issues!!!!!Thank you. I’ve been a constant customer several days a week since the store opened & have also had a very disrespectful response several times..but I understand sometimes things happen. However, one needs to have better control of their anger issues!!!

I’ve been applying for a job with Dollar General for 3 weeks. I’ve even had other people help. Please send me information on where to go.

After being told rudely at ten minutes to close we had to hurry. Scared her son so bad he freaked out and won’t go back. Emailed dollar general twice regarding how rude we treated while the store was still opened. At least you can watch this video and enjoy a dollar general getting chewed out as well. It is starting to become apparent to me the corporate office doesen’t even care as I have heard nothing back after 4 days…


Former Employee May 14, 2015 at 4:02 pm

I am writing as a last resort to try to resolve the issues in the Dawson Springs Peach Plaza Dollar General. As a formal employee for Dollar General I was trained to have pride in my store and we did. We had a great team of employees and management to make sure our store was appealing to all senses. Dawson Springs Dollar General is a mess. I was so shocked when I walked in to see merchandise all over the counters all over the floors and in buggies. There were roll tainers full of merchandise that was in dire need of being stocked. These containers were blocking the aisles I have had to move them in order to just walk down the aisle. Nothing was faced or stocked properly. The employees were rude. I understand that budgeting is something all companies are having to deal with this is no excuse for second rate employee work ethics This occurs on a weekly basis.. Every time I have spoken to an employee their excuse is they have no one to work and no manager. This should NEVER be said out loud this is a major safety issue. These employees are in major need of quality training. I sure hope that something can be done to help this store out Dawson Springs is a small town and this Dollar General is known as the towns Walmart. I really want to see this store be productive. Any action regarding this manner would be greatly appreciated.

THE Dollar store in Dawson Springs ky is terrible. There is merchandise laying all over the floors, there are roll containers blocking items on the shelf’s where you can not get to the items on the shelf and the roll containers also block isles

I live in Meadville, Pa and have been to the DG’s here, Conneaut Lake, Cambridge Springs, Cochranton and Saegertown. Most of the employees are not friendly. No smiles or thank yous. A woman named Misty that works in the Cochranton store was very rude when 1 of my items rang up a penny. She said that I can’t sell that to you , being very nasty the entire time. Of course I wasn’t going to purchase anything from her at that point. The store at The Downtown Mall here has a manager named Joy, who I thought was a nice person until last week. I walked into the store and she asked me what I was doing here again. Her employee Ally was very nasty to me and my daughter earlier in the week because we thought something was on sale and it wasn’t. Instead of Ally letting the nice cashier tells us that it wasn’t, she started screaming at us. Same time there was a big line formed and Ally about had a fit because she was going to have to wait on them. What kind of people do you hire and who is doing the training? If this keeps up, you WILL lose alot of business. If it wasn’t for all of us customers, there wouldn’t be any DG’s.
