How many times have we walked into a Dollar General for one or two things and come out with three bags and a jug of laundry soap in our hands! I have often said to my husband, “We should own stock in DG!” It is now a store one sees in all the obscure, rural, out of the fray places! Just the other weekend, in search of an item I needed for an organizing project, we stopped at four different locations on our 90 minute drive to our daughter’s!
So, how did this giant, billion dollar company, rural retailer get its start? It all began in Scottsville, KY and it’s gone all the way to Wall Street! And, so many in-between’s. A father and his son, Cal Turner and his dad! The story is woven with romance, family squabbles, cars, helicopters, board meetings, sorrow, and rejoicing.
