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.

7280 lskeshore store. Mentir Ohio. This store is always a mess. Stock never put up can’t get down isles. Very unsafe. Needs help. I am a schoolteacher. I would love to have a second job and keep your store neat. Clean and organized.

I am writing to inform corporate office of the store manager at store# 2199 Indianapolis, in.46219. She is very rude to customers and also treats her staff with the up most disrespect. This is not the way a store manager should act in a professional setting. I currently shopped in this store last week and seen an employee crying and saying they don’t even want to come to work. They are not able to talk to the district manager due to the fact that the store manager will cut the employees hours. I hope you can look into things and resolve the problem at hand. No one wants to shop in an environment like that. Something needs to be done! Thx

I live in a small town and all we have is dollar general and food country. We have the worst store within 20 miles. There are 7 stores within this area.You cannot get down the isles for freight that somehow cant get put up no matter how many workers are there. the manager for whatever reason wont hire people who are willing to work and do a good job. I watch and cannot believe the lazy people that work there. I helped set up walmart in Marion, Va. and worked 16 hours at a time putting up stock and i was a lot older than the employees working out there. They brought the manager from another store to fix it. Thats a laugh. Now if something isnt done then you might as well close the doors on this store. Saltville, Va.

To whom it may concern, I live in the small town of Oakman, Al. we here in our town was proud when Dollar General came to our town. Now with the things we here going on in our store sometimes we don’t know if we are proud anymore or not. We had a great store manager whose name was Chance Cook and Asst. Genie Chappell. Chance left I guess for a better job and they moved in a new manager whose name I don’t know. She came in and started cutting kids hours where they couldn’t make any money some of them were cut to 10 to 19 hours a week those who had been there for a long time. She started firing people right and left for nothing. One girl got a drink and didn’t pay for it for seven minutes. Another girl got a drink and chips for snack and didn’t pay for them until it was time for her shift to be over.Chance always took care of his people. When you would go in the store before employees were smiling ready to assist you any way they could but now you go in and you can tell they are scared to move afraid they are going to get fired.I checked out yesterday and the cashier dropped a quarter when she was giving me my change and said I hope she didn’t see that I will get fired. I hope that changes can be made to make this a good place to go shop again. Companies need to take care of the people who make the companies what they are and it not always management. Its the ones who stocks the shelf and the cashier who check people out with a smile. This store is no longer that way.

I recently acquired employment at store#7335 and there is a dispute about my hair accessories. As it states in the dress code head coverings are not acceptable, however I am not wearing one. I take a simple black handkerchief with a white pattern on it and fold it to the size of a large headband (approx 4″ wide in the back or front depending on how it’s worn). I have been told that it could be perceived as “gang affiliation” ,I’ve been told it covers “too much of my head ” that it isn’t “bland enough” to comply with my “uniform.” No one can seem to give me a valid answer. Every time I suggest a way to make it “acceptable” there is another excuse. Traditional fabric/elastic headbands will not stay on my head, as well I have suffered from chronic migraines for 21 years. The way I wear my HEADBAND helps relive symptoms that make it possible for me to function at work. I think that this is completely out of line , in no part of the dress code does it have any stipulations on headbands ie, color, pattern, width, etc, etc. Please fix this nonsense, how can wearing a headband pinup style translate or be perceived as “gang affiliation?”

Oh yea I forgot to add that I haven’t received any gas money for traveling to the store in Scott, Arkansas to help out. I kept getting told I had to do it myself on the website. I asked the previous manager Brenda Snyder she never helped me and I also asked the current manager Brandy Deboard and she didn’t help me either. My district manager was told and all he said to me was he they weren’t doing their jobs. I worked with them I know they weren’t doing their jobs I called you to get it corrected not be told that the managers he hired weren’t doing their jobs. He should seriously lose his, he is the worst District Manager I have ever had to work for.
