Not necessarily. I think pink and gray dots were a penny. Those might be 50% off.

I thought only the shoes with blue dots were a penny?

Markdowns always happen on a Tuesday but the Tuesdays may vary between stores based on location/owner etc. FYI a little birdie told me that the spring/summer items should be marked down 90% this Tuesday most likely. HTH.

My store must stay on top of things. Summer stuff had been 90%, and deeply rummaged and quickly rotated. They already have Xmas set up

If the spring and summer is the same spring and summer that is in my stores.................most of that has been marked down and is long gone or picked through...........is there some more spring and summer items?

Most of or stores already cleared out summer at 90 %

We did get some grill brushes on 70% for I believe .40 each.

The green amazing values are 70% off. We went to multiple stores to get the cleaning supplies from those.. and found a few penny items.

Ill have to finish cleaning out the car to get pics but memo pads with a pencil attached and a magnet were a penny, microfiber cleaning cloths were a penny and I managed to find a green D hair clip set.

My stores are insane about penny items. Df made a point to Loudly announce every time I found a penny item and one cashier and manager were terrified "as long as there are no more on the shelf we can sell them. You won't get in trouble if those are the only ones"

I think our dm is a butthead and writing them up over this

I went to three Dollar General Stores today and will write up my experiences soon and post some pictures.

First, some questions. Is it possible Dollar General has re-priced (is that a word) the Disney Pillow Pets? I was in a store today that had at least 3 Piglets and 3 Winnie The Poohs that I know I have gotten for a penny in the past, but they rang up at $15. In one store I found an Ironman hopper ball from 2010 that rang up full price. In the 2nd store, a Toy Story hopper ball from 2009 rang up full price.

I'm so confused. . . .

All Dollar Generals are owned by the same corporation. The markdown percent depends on the amount of items they have. So if they have a ton of green dot, it is marked down sooner. That is why one may be 90% and the store down the street is only 70%.

I want some yellow dot summer and it is only 60% today. They have racks and racks. I am so hoping for 90. Do those kind of markdowns happen on Tuesday. I have never seen 80. So I still have to go through 70%

Penny Stuff

I pick up the penny items from several of our local DGs here to donate to a huge, local non profit charity. I finally set this up with corporate after getting mad at the response from the managers when I would find the items on my own. LOL. I picked up this past week and was told that on Tuesday all of the summer/lawn garden stuff will penny out. All of the green dot stuff as well. At least in the South East region (I am in Florida) These are the things that they gave us that are pennied out that I have not seen posted anywhere: Hope this helps others that need it or donate...

Emerson Stainless Steel Heated Travel Mug - priced $6 with no dot. UPC 94202 20357
Big Builder Remote Control dump truck - $12 yellow star UPC 400022607438
Launch Across Game $10 Yellow Star ONLY (there are some with yellow dots that are not) UPC 083933124241
American Seed Brand bags of dirt - marked $3
As Seen on TV - Twin Draft Guard for the door - no price or identifying marks
True Living Moo Mesh Chairs in various colors in a bag - $22 price tag.
Wonder Eggs - marked $5
Seed Starter Trays - 72 Cell Mini Greenhouse marked $4.50

Will try to update more on Tuesday when we pick up again

Found several of these boys' t-shirts recently. Note the pink dot on the tag.






Will post pictures and describe what I went thru (it's funny now) during my weekend hunt tomorrow. Computer is wonky tonight.

I have some questions. So if the item rings up a penny can they refuse to sell it at that price, or do they have to honor that??

These are pictures of the items I found, and fought for, this weekend at 2 Dollar General Stores.

Please note that the Barbie Bathing Beauty Set has a yellow dot and a date of 2011 on it. No idea why they're pennied out. I found four at one store during this trip. They're usually on a high shelf at the back, but I've also found them in the regular toy section.





The Jumbo Digital coin-counting banks are usually found on the high shelves in the back of the store, but are sometimes in the regular toy section. No dot or star, but hard to miss when you focus on locating the Jumbo version of this coin-counting bank. I found three at one store during this trip.



Just a boys' t-shirt I found at the last store. Only one at the end of the aisle on a mannequin body. Cute. I think it's only the 2nd one of the Sponge Bob character t-shirts I've found.





Hope this helps someone!

ran into a dollar store nearby and manager told me they were told to rip the covers off the books and send them back. Also found one of the gray dot F!! boy shirts and I have searched thisi store several times and the manager is paticular to comb the store also. I had already found these shirts several months ago at this store. Soooooooooo moral of this stroy: It doesn't matter if you think there is no penny items at a store since you have already covered it several times.................there usually is something that was missed.
