Dollar General / night shift employees at store #10747
I am sorry to have to do this, but I feel it best for the community.
Last night, I arrived at Dollar General 30 minutes before close. I picked out my products and went to pay, but realized I left my money at home. I told them I would be back before close and to hold my products. When I returned 8 minutes before close, they had already locked up and shut the registers. I told them that this was not right, as the store was supposed to still be open, and after talking about me in spanish (which I later let on I can speak) they opened the door and let me in.
They had put the products I chose up, so I had to find them again (which took up some time). Finally, while paying for the items, I remembered I needed baby wipes as well so I looked for them. The older employee once again started talking about me in spanish, so I replied in spanish if she could stop insulting and instead point me to the appropriate isle. Realizing I knew what she was saying changed her demeanor, but had soured mine at that point. I explained that it was not okay to shut early in a community store, using a mother with an infant child looking for formula as an example.
The younger lady rolled her eyes and the older cashier instructed her (Mari, open the door) to let me out. I ended up forgetting 2 original items and left in a terrible mood. Think about how many times they might've skimmed time off before, and how many last second shoppers might've been turned away due to a 10 minute early close?
As I told my younger brother, I pick my battles. Employee service in a valued community store is a battle I will pick. I hope that these ladies get reprimanded for their flippant ways, and learn that the store IS a valued part of the neighborhood. Thank you for your time and I hope for an expedient conclusion to this.
