The founding of the Dollar General is an interesting story that proves you can succeed in life if you work hard, even with limited education.

The first Dollar General store was founded by James Luther and his son Cal Turner on June 1, 1955 in Springfield Kentucky. The father of the founding pair, James Luther, never received a formal education, because his father died when he was young, forcing him to help out on his family farm instead of attend schooling.

For 10 years James was a grocery traveling salesman before he bought a house with his family and settled in Kentucky. This was during America’s Great Depression, and James Luther had an enterprising mind, seeing the depression as an opportunity rather than a setback. During this time period he seized opportunity by buying and selling bankrupt general stores. His son was able to watch and learn business skills during this time period.

The father son duo opened J.L. Turner and Son Wholesale in 1939, each putting in an initial $5,000 to get the store off the ground. Their venture was very successful with over $2 million in sales by 1950. This prompted them to open the first Dollar General store in 1955, and people absolutely loved it. When sales went through the roof, they converted all their stores into Dollar Generals, and the rest, as they say, is history.

In 1968, 4 years after the passing of James Luther, the company was booming with over $40 million in yearly sales, and a profit of $1.5 million a year.

The Dollar General also went public in 1968 and now has over 14,000 storefronts worldwide. In 2002, Dollar General posted $6 billion in sales, and continues to grow.

With the opening of their 13,000th store, the DGCustomerFirst team had a celebration complete with appropriately themed yellow and black balloons, as well as happy employees cutting a special celebration ribbon.

  1. Filled out the survey 4 times & only was asked if I want to enter the sweepstakes. No $3.00 coupon. Why???? Have rec’d same for several months

  2. LOVED to shop at dg but now i go to Walgreens an Krogers they offer better dears for people who coupon i go to dg when i need some thing fast but i am sorry if i had one of these store close i would not shop dg again u guys r not coupon friendly any more an that what i am. Now if u become coupon friendly again i will be back my favorite store is DG an i love the 3/15 cause i love to save money

  3. Dollar General is one of my favorite stores to shop it I go there at least four to five times a week I love that store

  4. Have done so many surveys to compliment the staff that works at my local store but they never get the surveys that I do I know these surveys help them and if the SMG OR CORPATE just seem to want to pick and chose what the hear is not what these surveys are for. Please fix this so this store is recognized for the surveys they are should be getting

  5. I usually shop at dg out by rocky fork lake hillsboro,oh 45133 several times a week but today was my last time. I was treated very rudely by caitlyn , i approached her with a problem with the coke sign not ringing up right and she told me it was only on sale for a few days i asked her why the signs said it was still on sale she ripped the signs down in front of me and said now its not! I wont shop there anymore,I’ll drive in to walmart !

  6. I filed out my survey , for a chance to win a 100$ gift card, and there was no place for my name, phone number or e-mail.

  7. great customer service .Hope was very pleasant along with linda and the rest of the crew .shop there all most every day


  9. Reading DG customer comment appears their intent is truly disingenuous. Try Dollar Tree, everthing is dollar and Dollar Tree respond to customer surveys.

  10. The DG in my town is very disorganized – things all over the aisles – never neat – I love to shop there but it is a Hazard (accident waiting to happen) I’ve shopped at other DG’s and they are usually neat and organized.

  11. Hello love me some dollar general store. I’m lucky to have a choice I can go to dollar G, family Dollar,or dollar Tree . love we’re I live.The stores are right next to each other.

  12. OMG the lady / manger “Caucasian “ with glasses, dark hair I didn’t get her name, at DG on Broad Street in Forney Tx was so freaking rude just now!!! She had an attitude and didn’t want to do a freaking return !! Just kept trying to tell me the stuff I purchased was discounted!! I only wanted my money back !!

  13. Survey code 0421-8908-1199-152. I shop at the dollar general in shelburn, Indiana and Sullivan, Indiana. They both have just been remodeled and they both are organized and things are easily found the staff at both stores are very friendly and helpful

  14. I just returned home from your Dollar General Store located on Buck Creek Road in Simpsonville, KY. Much to my dismay I can not believe that the beautiful store that was built there in 2014 has gone down the way it has.. Today, I encountered (2) of the rudeness associates, a store dirty, disorganized, cluttered mess . It seems that no one there has ever cared about what could be a very profitable store for your company concerning it is a prime location for customers in that area. As for me I will never enter that store again….
