Dollar General Dollar General Discriminates Against Veterans. Pinellas Park, Florida
*UPDATE Employee: This is ridiculous...
*Consumer Comment: Nothing to do with being a veteran.
*Consumer Comment: It is pretty tacky to ask for your pack
*General Comment: the policy about back packs is to deter shoplifters
*Consumer Comment: I am insulted.
I am currently recovering from the financial crisis. I do not have a car. After leaving the gym, I stopped over at Dollar General in Pinellas Park Florida. The manager said to me in a very rude, condescending manner "You have to leave your backpack with me"...
First of all, I have had that pack since I was in the military. She does not have a right to touch it. She didn't earn the right to touch it. And what kind of tacky, classless thing is that to say to a customer?
I told her that I would report her. I then pulled out my cell phone to take a picture. In a very cynical manner she posed for the camera. She seemed to think that this was funny. I was not laughing.
Let's make this clear. America can do without Dollar General. It's not even a really good store. Applicances buy there, can openers - basically anything with moving parts - breaks. They sell bottom of the barrel quality and mark it up. So, yea there's nothing special about Dollar General at all. AND, the store was empty at the time I walked in, so apparently nobody else wants to shop there either and if that manager is that rude to everyone, then now I know why. If you're a useless company like Dollar General, you cannot afford to lose ANY business.
So, after I left buying nothing, I stopped over to Walgreens. They're nothing special either their prices are ridiculous. But, they treat their customers with courtesy and respect. I have never been treated in such rude manner at a Walgreens store. Sure, they over charge, but who got the business tonight? The company that was courteous and professional, even if they did charge a little more.
Dollar General is likely to respond to this message with a generic template by an air headed robot, and it will likely go something like this : 'We apologize for the inconvenience and strive for 100% customer satisfaction, yadda yadda yadda"...
But, if Dollar General is smart, here is what they will do: Apologize or the rude, unprofessional treatment, and immediately terminate this Anti-American manager. There are plenty of other Americans out there who need jobs - who deserve jobs. Why have a woman working for you who has no respect for the people who pay your salaries?
Until Dollar General decides to do the right thing, DO NOT DO BUSINESS WITH DOLLAR GENERAL !!!
