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.

Looking forward to a Family Dollar coming to this area, Campbell Mo. What is a Manager doing if walking through the store they cant see shelves empty, for weeks at a time. I have been going to the store for 3 weeks to get Pulled Pork, none in stock. This past week end guess what was on sale, and a sign put on the edge of the shelve. yep Pulled Pork. If I was a manager, I’d be making some phone calls, after all My job would be to take care of the people coming in the store. Just how crazy is it to put a sale on a empty shelve. And Dollar General don’t give Rain Checks, even when the Item was never in the store.
