But the pink and grey are still penny items. The grey dots are being used for winter apparell in mens and tan is being used for new rugs and blankets. Also the yellow 70% off does not apply to all stores

I totally agree. Maybe everyone should start posting on DG facebook page/ calling corp. asking for price checking machines to be installed at their stores.

Had a tough time finding any grey dot no other penny clothing found. But I did find some men's fleece lounge pants with f12 on the but they rang up regular price? Go figure? I am going to call corporate Monday to see what the deal is with that! I asked the cashier to hold them till I find out for sure! I found a $25 area rug the other day that had the brown dot that was supposed to be pennied out still ringing up for $25.00 and it was the only rug left in the store with a brown dot. New manager has no clue says you can have it for 70% off making it $7.50 made me sick but I really needed it and been tying to buy it for 2 mos. , oh well some days we win and some days we just live to fight another day!

Since every region / store is different please don't call corporate on when they are going to penny things out. They will change how they do things and we will all lose out.

I have 2 stores that are 5 miles apart and they don't clearance the same way as they are technically in different "regions".

We don't want to happen to Dollar general what seems to be happening to us with grocery stores and double coupons. Everyone going hog wild and they decide that they will take it away. I have couponed for over 20 years and it is getting harder and harder.

Here is how I did it... I went an found 3 webcams at a penny. The manager rang me up and said unfortunately we can't let you take those. I politely said that your policy requires you to sell items to me that are ringing up as .1 for that price. He quickly denied it. I then told him..... Lets assume I am a mystery shopper hired by dollar general to evaluate stores to see if there policies are being followed. If that were the case you would not e following your policies and procedures and that would be a negative against the store. At the point he changed his tone. I do not believe that was lying just putting a thought in his head.
