Company Summary:

Dollar General Corporation is an American chain of variety stores based in Goodlettsville, Tennessee. As of 2020, Dollar General operates more than 16,000 stores in the United States. Dollar General has become one of the most profitable stores in the rural United States with revenue reaching approximately $27 billion in 2019. The stores carry low prices on items that include food, snacks, health and beauty aids, basic apparel, seasonal items, cleaning supplies, and many more from the country’s most-trusted brands.

Dollar General’s history may be traced back to the early 1900s with the story of James Luther “J.L.” Turner and his son Cal Turner. J.L.’s father got into an accident in 1902 when James was 11 years old. He had to quit school and worked to assist in providing for his family. He became a traveling dry goods salesman but left the job after 10 years and settled in Scottsville, Kentucky. By the 1930s, he started buying and liquidating bankrupt general stores. His only child joined him to these closeouts and gained business knowledge at a young age.

The company that Cal Turner co-founded went public as Dollar General Corporation four years after his father’s passing in 1964 with annual sales of more than $40 million and net income in excess of $1.5 million.

Their success made them believe in taking care of their people. They understand that part of serving others is investing in their team member’s well-being. They provide a benefits package designed to nurture their employees and their families.
