I stopped by a store about 15 min. from my house yesterday and didn't find anything but it's also a new store. I'm going to try the older store by me @ lunch time. Doubt I'll find anything since we have a ton of extreme couponers in my area now that clear shelves. But what do I do if they refuse to sell the .01 items to me? I should be looking for the purple & green dots right? I've read through the entire thread but just want to make sure I'm correct before heading out.

Hi Ashley! Yes, the purp dot items are 90% off, and green dot is now 75% off in my stores. Even some of the summer toys and garden items are ringing up 75% off. The red dot items are being markdown, as well as, the furniture. End tables were 4.75, bookcases were 9.50. My daughter bought a family sized pool, reg. priced $30, she paid $4.00!!!! Large box of Gain detergent, (icy freeze w/ oxi crystals) was marked down to $5.50! The manager of one of the stores said more mark downs are taking place b/c they've got to make room for fall and Christmas items.

Not a lot of luck at my store. I did get a few green dot plates but that was it. But I have a question, what about the items that don't have a color dot on them? For example I picked up a shower curtain that was in with all of the other green dot home stuff thinking that it was part of the sale but it was full price. I had the cashier void it and she got pissed and asked why.

I know, it's like that in my DG stores. As a matter of fact, the same thing just happened to me last nite! I don't care how pissed they get. If I want something price checked, it is their JOB!!!

That is a very cute rug! And to find a brown dot rug so late in the game, wow. Jealous since I have not found a single brown dot rug!

I say, "I am sorry but someone must have changed their mind and put it down in the green dot section. Or clearance section." After all, it is not our fault items are in the wrong area.

I have a question. Sorry, no pic but hoping someone can help anyway.

I was in a DG today--the same one where I got accused of working for DG, etc. and found white kitchen tools--fork, spatula for the frying pan, etc. with a letter, either B or D underneath the $1 price tag in a black box. They were packaged a little differently (no plastic package) than others I had found and were heavier. They were all white except for the handles which had 'fuzzy' looking colored circles on them, I think in blue, pink, red, etc.

Anyone know if they are pennied out? I was too scared to try them.

If they had different colors on the handle they are pennies out. The items with a letter under them were pennied out a while a go I got several sets of them last month.

Grrr I'm so frustrated and want answers there aren't really many DGs around here (only2 really) the second closest one to my house is about 20min away and this store is really driving me up the wall because they NEVER have things clearanced like other stores, they need to work on moving items through there store better because everything is really old but yet not clearanced for example the dollar items that were pennies out with the letters under them at this store were only ever marked down to 75% I think it was and this stuff was garbage I mean litterally half the stuff was broken! I went to the store 3 times in the last month checking on them and they never marjed down and never marked down...(the manager recognizes me now even from my penny shopping and knows I've been watching the stuff) so a couple days ago I go to check for the 4th time and they are gone grrr also no half of clearance deals summer clothes not marked down, and I couldn't even find much green dots (only 25% marked down) I just don't get it the manager told me they just don't get the markdowns like other stores do. I call bologna! I think she has just found a way to work around markdowns
I'm going to contact dollar general and get some answers tho cuz its driving me nuts! U can't EVER find a thing clearances more than 25% off (besides the one 70%) I just realized tho that this store has lots of huge toys leaning up against doors and windows and all faded anyone know if they could be a penny? One was like a tent thing you could color I think, also play kitchens
Oh ans I found some marvel and toy story bounce ball things are these the penny ones?

Sorry you aren't having much luck. I would definitely call corporate and find out why their items aren't marked down like other stores. Are you price checking the items? If not, it's possible that they agree just too lazy to put up the signs. Lol

I tried a Marvel ( Iron Man I believe) ball hoppers and it rand up full price last weekend.

I'd try the toy story ball. I haven't seen any anywhere and it's an old movie dot hose could be penny items or discounted.

I found an old old looking ball in a box and had cashier to scan it and it would not even scan.........it was not in the system so they would not let me have it......???? She said well we do not have one like it but most of them are at least $5.00.................... wished I would have taken a picture of it.
