Family Dollar The condition of our local store 3612 S Carrollton Ave. New Orleans LA 70118

The store at 3612 S Carrollton Avenue, New Orleans is poorly maintained. The floors are not clean, the coolers have dried spills, and the store is often just plain dirty. Trash cans on the outside of the store are not emptied on a regular basis. They are often overflowing to the sidewalks which are not swept. The area is generally an eyesore. The entrance door was recently damaged during a break in, and crime is a constant problem at this store. Some residents don't feel safe. I have visited your stores in other neighborhoods, and they are comparatively much better maintained

This store serves a poor neighborhood that really needs a full-service grocery store and would prefer to have one. We care about our community and will not continue to stand by and accept this kind of disrespect. The store and the area around store must be maintained to provide a descent shopping experience. Staff at the store is not properly trained and there is a need for security. These are issues that are standard in most neighborhoods. We are prepared to pursue solutions and we are starting with you. I spoke to a manager on duty and he was unable to assist in any manner. Can you please help us?

Family Dollar Store Manager of #7519 in Clinton Township, Michigan

Around 11:00 a.m. on August 11, 2022, I went into this store to purchase a few items. Sam, the store manager was berating a store employee as I walked in. She had been called to the front to speak with another customer who apparently did not have the right slip to return an item. She was rude, abrupt and irritated. That poor employee was yelled at for no good reason, and humiliated in front of a long line of customers. Another employee came to the front and was ordered to not waste her time. When I finally go to the cashier I asked if the manager was having a bad day to which she replied that she spoke like that to everyone - shoppers and employers. I told her I felt sorry that she had to work in such a hostile environment and asked for the manager's name. I will not be going back to that store!

Desired outcome: Retrain or remove that supervisor.

Family Dollar cell phone products

I went into the Minot ND Family Dollars store to buy a Verizon cell phone. When i got home i realize i had bought the same phone as i did a year ago at the same store. I went back to return the phone, but the manager would not allow me to do so, because the package was opened. Excuse me, how are you going to know if you like and want the phone if you don't open it up and look at it. The phone had not been activated so i just don't understand why your policy is non returnable, and there should be a sign saying cell phones non returnable. Sorry never again will i do business with the Family dollar branch.

Family Dollar Prices not matching what's in system

I was shopping at your store in Natchez, MS there is a price in front of the item, but when I got to the register the amount was higher. This was unacceptable to me, so I asked for the Manager to get the lower price. Which Ms. Brannon gave her authorization, but I explained I shouldn't have to go thru this as a consumer, there was also items of the 75% off clearance, that had not been changed in the system. Ms Brannon the MANAGER said we can't change the price! This is not making any sense she just changed the price of the above-mentioned item, so why not this item, you are the mgr! Please clarify why she was not able to satisfy a customer?

Desired outcome: That items that are marked clearance be put into the system with the price and discount before signage goes up, this will eliminate confusing, and give the customer a more overall pleasant shopping experience.

Family Dollar Store

The location in Crosbyton Texas is horrible. This location has never had structure and the filthiest location of family dollar stores I've been to. Management needs to be replaced. The location has product everywhere, customers can never find what they're looking for with boxes in isles as well as product or anyone in the store not putting things away. These locations employees go to work in shorts and any kind of clothing, so no dress code enforced at all. Cannot keep staffed and this location. I've Been in management for 12 years plus and this is something i have never seen. corporate needs to take action immediately and clear this location out with new management or close it down. pay rate may be needed raised here to keep employment and to get a good staff in. again this is a store that everyone comes to in town seeing we are such a small town and with it being managed the way it is people in town will travel to dollar general or family dollar in the next towns being about 20 min out.

Desired outcome: higher pay and new management

Family Dollar I bought a broken speaker.

So I bought a speaker in June at the Family Dollar in Newport Vermont. Got it home, charged it, nothing. The thing was broken right out of the box. So I brought it back with my receipt. So the manager Ron and his 2nd in command Brenda were point blank, rude from the gate. Ron started yelling at me that he wasn't giving me store credit or a refund. He stated it was company policy. Then I stated, "that's [censored]ing stupid" the policy not the manager. So about a month has passed and I came into some money. Well I went in to FD yesterday...Spoke to Ron himself. I apologized for any misunderstanding and explained that I was not calling him [censored]ing stupid but the policy. So I asked Ron, can I spend my money in here? He said absolutely NOT! What he didn't know was I was ready to spend $1000 bucks. He turned it down, real money! What a dumb person! Now I will not going to be spending any money with Family Dollar since your company support these kind of actions. Dumb! But on my way out I did call Ron a [censored]TARD! SO I UNDERSTAND IF I AM NOT ALLOWED IN Family Dollar. I ment what I said! So it is what it is. But if he is treating me like this and I lost $43 bucks on the dead speaker, but your company lost at least $1000 yesterday because of him. He acts like he is the king and no matter what his word is law. Bull, take him down a notch or 2.

Desired outcome: Fire Ron!!!!!!! Make Brenda manager. RON IS NO GOOD AND MOST OF NEWPORT ALL SAY THAT RON IS A CLASS A [censored]!!! DO WHAT YOU WILL BUT HE IS LOOSING YOUR COMPANY MONEY!!!!!!

Family Dollar Bathroom Cleanliness

Last Wednesday I was in the Zumbrota, MN store and I had to use the restroom. When I first entered, the smell was horrendous and was filthy. The floor had garbage, the toilet paper holder just had rolls sitting on it and not one was placed correctly. The sick was disgusting, it looked like nobody had washed anything in the restroom for many days, if at all. The walls were splashed with dirty water dripping down, the mirror was splashed as well. I was so disappointed and grossed out, I had to leave the store. This is not appropriate for customers to use. The restroom should be cleaned daily or even two times per day, and supplies kept in stock. I would like someone to contact me in regard to this complaint.

I would also like to mention that the shelves are always messy, and things just thrown in random places, items not marked with a price. This store is fairly new and I am not impressed with the upkeep.

Desired outcome: Bathroom needs to be cleaned at the end of the day for sure, and items stocked and placed correctly. All items on the shelf should be priced and someone should be checking the isles for misplaced items.

Family Dollar Customer service

I actually called to pay a compliment. Unfortunately that has soured me so much I will never shop at any Family Dollar again. I called the corporate office. Nobody was available. That's a strike right there. It put me through to a voice mail, then told me the voice mail was full and no message could be left. What kind of unprofessional company doesn't even check its own voice mail, after having nobody available to answer their calls on top of that? I hit "0," and was on hold for 6-7 minutes. Finally a woman answered. I asked her if I had reached customer service and she said something totally unrelated. I asked her if she would answer my question and she hung up on me. I called back and the same process happened; except after getting the full voice mail and hitting "0," and being on hold for 5 minutes or so, the phone rang as before, and then I heard as the person sent me back to the automated menu. This happened three times. I tried calling another customer support number and every option just told me to go to the store or go on the website. The website has no way of contacting them or providing any kind of feedback at all. No email address, no form, nothing. It's obvious that Family Dollar's opinion is that they don't want to be bothered with you, and if you find a way to call them, they will simply hang up on you and then ignore any subsequent calls from that number. It's pathetic that I intended to actually pay a compliment, and instead I'm so angry at this level of rudeness, ineptness, incompetence, and general disinterest in their customers that I will simply not shop there again. And sorry to the kind individual at the local store whom I wanted to put a compliment in for; sadly, your company is run by nasty individuals who don't care about you or their customers.

Family Dollar Employee

There is a violent worker at my local Family Dollar. He was talking about how some kids who were in the store should be "dead in an ally way with people walking by their rotting corpses," and that the next time they came in he was going to "beat the @$%@ out of them". He was shaking he was so mad and was red in the face. Several customers and I locked eyes and whispered that we were unsettled by him. I told the manager it was upsetting. She let me know that she informed her superiors, but nothing has changed as of yet. She was close to tears, and I believe she is frightened, too. I am a nurse and was and EMT. This employee showed signs of mental health problems. He needs some help, and is a loose cannon who I believe will harm someone. I haven't been back to that store out of fear. I can't imagine having to work with a violent person like that. I worry about the manager, too. I've attempted to contact Family Dollar about this several times, with no luck.

Desired outcome: Either mental health support for the employee, or removal from customer contact so he doesn't harm someone.

Family Dollar Store #5847 in Brownsville texas working with no air condition since 7/22/22.

store is operating in high hot temperatures for the employees and for the customers. It's an oven in there since 7/22/22. No air-condition as well on 7/23/22 and the frozen coolers also shut down. district manager very irresponsible. Store should be closed. if there are sell frozen food at 50% off who knows if it's still good and since when. Customers are all complaining about how hot store is and so are employees. POSSIBLE LAWSUIT IF STORE DOES NOT SHUT DOWN WHILE PROBLEM IS NOT FIX!

Angry customer

Desired outcome: closed store immediately until air condition and coolers are working properly. Its an emergency hope this gets read as soon as possible.

Family Dollar Return not accepted

Today is the 2nd store I have stopped to that I don’t accept a return of a bathrug. It is unused and attached tags. Each time I was told that it had to go back to the original store of purchase. I’m in Jacksonville Fl first store was 929 McDuff south and the second was 2610 Main St.

I will burn the extra gas in a already increasing economy to go all the way to the original store which is #05161 571 n main st.

All this over $12.00, just wanted you to be aware.

Desired outcome: Update on procedure and a gift card for the inconvenience.
