Went to a dollar general out of my usual route an found forever cuddles and forever lazys. The spice rack and dual organizers. The GM tried telling me that the reason they were a penny is because they were recalled to the company and that the vendor had not stopped by and picked up the items..what a bunch of lies.... Then she said that manager was going to get in trouble for not pulling them. I said is that a company policy ma'am? Se said yes and that she follows company policy. I was like great then... You should follow the penny item one also. That is also a company policy. It took all my strength not to yell at her but I walked out for 12 it's for a penny

I can't figure out the rhyme and reason for all these penny items, it is really a treasure hunt and you just have to verify prices @ the register.

I just make sure the cashier @ the register aren't the jealous ones who freak out on penny items and threaten to call the cops on customers who want to buy items. I'm not used to cashier profiling @ DG but they forced me to!
O no you didn't! The whole reason I started 'penny' shopping was to get tan dot rugs.

Does anyone know if managers can change the prices of items on the spot with their handheld store scanner thingy with all the buttons? Just curious if that's what happened today on some t-shirts I was sure would be a penny. No harm, no foul. I'm just curious if there is power in that device

True living with brown dots rang up a penny for us! Anyone know if the comfort bay brand with brown dots is a penny too?

Fyi

Grey dots are the new winter shirts...the penny ones are f11

Tan was reused for the rugs so f13 on the new ones.


On the way back from my work trip I stopped at 14 from Fl ro NC off I95. Today at one store the manager had the afc list and was pulling the items. I am guessing it is about over in my district.

What a shame. 'Our' list is the very same that their employer sends them weeks in advance. Items get missed I understand that. Why must it take going viral for management to clean up their stores?

More so isn't anyone disgusted by what DG does with these pennied items? Usable shoes, clothes and food are destroyed! So now and suddenly they are concerned that we are buying merchandise for $.01 that otherwise they destroy?

Did she show you the device or just tell u it was $20
If I knew for sure it was a penny I would have told her I want it and ring it up. I would call her out
It is what it is. That machine cannot change price. Price is established at corporate level

I need some information re: the baby clothes. Last night I found lots of Dollar General onesies without dots that had FA10, SP11, SU11, etc. on the tags. They were marked $2.50. The cashier was nice about checking the price on one for me--didn't want to bother her with more--and it was $2.50. If the letters and numbers indicate the season when the onesie was first in stock on the shelves, why aren't these onesies discounted or pennied out?

Does anyone know?

If you knew it was a penny and she told you it was $20 . I would have bought it anyway and proved to her it was a penny and see the reaction on her face when she scans it.
And why did you get it price checked?

I had some of the t-shirts that were F11 and had been retagged, so no dots. But they were so very similar to the pennied ones I'd already bought. But she knew. When she saw them, she grabbed the hand store scanner with buttons, beeped it, punched some buttons, and then scanned them into the register, and they rang up $5. She beeped the other penny item I had, too, and then just gave it to me rather than ringing them up. She knew what it was I had before she ever rang the first item which made me wonder about the hand scanner.

Let me tell you though that these deals are soo hit and miss its frustrating. About a week ago i found 2 disney pillow pets in a dg in iowa (a mickey and a woody)but then this weekend we were in the sioux falls, sd area anf i found 3 woody pillow pets exactly the same as the penny one i had at home but they rang up $15 though the box said $20 same happened eith other items that were a penny in my ia stores but not the sd stores. This does seem to be a bit regional. As the markdowns for things were different in different areas too. Such as yellow dot clothing and shoes and accessories being 25% off in SD but not in all but one of my local dgs in iowa. I dont get it.

I found the pink dot f12 and they were full price. They told me that they were a penny last week....

I went to a store that doesn't pull them. They view it as a waste and call them Christmas presents to the customer s.
