A little Background about Dollar General
Dollar General started out as J.L. Turner and Son Wholesale in 1939, and on June 1, 1955, James Luther and his son Cal Turner founded Dollar General in Springfield Kentucky.
This business grew out of James’ bravery to take advantage of the Great Depression instead of succumbing to it. He went into the buy and sell of bankrupt general stores. Eventually, he saved up money and set up his own company, which flourished, so in 1955, Dollar General store was born with the aim to give people reasonably priced goods.
In 1964, James Luther passed, when the company has already reached $40 million annual sales and $1.5 million annual profit. In 2002, it recorded $6 billion in sales, and this time Cal Jr. retired.
To date, the store sells all sorts of products from clothes to food. Its estimated revenue is $20.349 billion, and that store has 14,000 locations all over the world. The aim remains to be making available affordable quality goods to everyone and to make shopping hassle-free. DG truly believes that they are “America’s neighborhood general store,” and they keep true to this.
