What is the "Wal-mart effect"? RedWolf 04:13, Nov 23, 2003 (UTC)

  • The statement of Dollar General having top-notch merchandise at low prices seems non-neutral. If that was a quote from the website, it is OK, but this seems a bit leaning towards Dollar General.--Tim Quievryn 19:26, 11 April 2006 (UTC)

Public Stock[edit]

If anyone knows what the public ticker symbol was before being purchased, please include it in the article. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 68.243.78.142 (talk) 05:40, 21 December 2007 (UTC) DG was their stock ticker symbol. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 69.131.152.32 (talk) 18:32, 2 January 2008 (UTC)

POV-check[edit]

The entire Concepts section sounds like it was written by the DG marketing department. I removed the more egregious NPOV violations, but more checking is needed.--TexasDex 14:58, 28 November 2006 (UTC)

Have you ever shop there? There is some really nice stuff and often near or better then old walmart prices.
I worked there for over a year, and while I don't disagree that they have some good and cheap products Wikipedia has certain standards for neutrality, including neutral tone and not presenting points of view or opinions as fact. Looking at it again, I think the "Concepts" section most definitely violates those principles. Whoever rewrites this (it might be me if I ever have any free time) will have to reword and trim that section in particular to ensure neutrality. --TexasDex 08:05, 12 February 2007 (UTC)

infobox?[edit]

no corporate info box, i will work on adding one.Paco8191 23:58, 19 July 2007 (UTC)

    • I added a full info box, and i dont think this reads like an advertisment, at least not that much.Paco8191 01:32, 20 July 2007 (UTC)


on second thought, i really don't to - sorry

Picture[edit]

The first picture looked like a retailer converted to DG, and the second one looks like a CGI pic from a pamphlet. I've replaced it with a picture I took myself of the new DG store in my hometown — I would think it'd be best if the picture shows a "default" store design.

Company Motto-DG is actively Christian?[edit]

Just curious what the history is behind the DG motto "Jesus Loves You"? Why is this company actively supporting a religion? Thanks. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 108.183.84.89 (talk) 02:05, 20 July 2013 (UTC)
