Happy Birthday


People who like grocery shopping are my kind of people. I don’t understand, but there is something about those aisles with all kinds of foods that I love(it’s probably the food!). If there’s ever going to be a zombie apocalypse, a grocery store is going to be my base for as long as I’m alive. Well, enough about that as we are here to talk about the Dollar General(DG) retail store and its DGME employee access portal.

A retail giant like Dollar general that’s been operating for 82 years now obviously has several stores in various locations. To be precise, it has 17,266 stores across the continental U.S. With that many stores the workforce is also a massive number with 143,000 employees. The thing is, it is difficult to keep track of things and manage all your work in such a huge retail store. This is why the employees have their portal.

The Dollar General has an employee portal which is usually called the DGME portal. Any employee of the retail store can log in to their accounts in this portal to access schedules, check on the employee benefits, check up on W-2, payrolls, and many other things. The moment a person joins their workforce, they are provided with an employee ID to enter this portal. Though not everyone is familiar with such web portals and may require some assistance. In such a case, the next few sections will help you understand everything about this portal.

How to Delete the Dollar General Account and App?

Let us say that for some reason if one wants to get rid of their DG account in their portal. The reason could be anything, one might not be satisfied with their services or may have had a bad experience with them. Regardless, we are here to show the way on how to delete an account in their portal. There are two ways to delete the account and remove all the personal data.

  1. One is by using the GDPR law. The GDPR(General Data Protection Regulation for EU residents) states that an individual has a right to ask an organization to delete their personal data. Just them an email or a letter for that.
  2. The other similar law is the CCPA(California Consumer Privacy Act). This law dictates that a resident of California can request a business body to delete all kind of personal info it has on them. The business body has to then comply, otherwise pay a fine of $7,500 per violation.
  3. If you are using the dollar general app, or the DG digital coupons, ads app then you can simply go to your device settings and then to the storage/apps and uninstall it.

About Dollar General

Most of you know the retail store very well since you go there for shopping. It takes time to build such a successful billion-dollar business from scratch and James Luther Turner and Cal Turner did an amazing job at that. The father and son duo are the founders of this retail store that now has total assets of $22.825 billion.

The business was passed down to the next generation to Cal Turner Jr. until it was then handled by David Perdue as CEO in 2003. In the same year, the retail store entered the grocery market which is called the Dollar General Market. After David Bere became the interim CEO, the company shares were bought by multiple investors for $6.9 billion. DG also sponsored Joe Gibbs Racing, Brain Vickers, Matt Kenseth, and a few others in NASCAR. Apart from that, it has also sponsored the Dollar General Bowl.

Have you ever wondered how the retail store provides stuff at affordable prices? That’s because most of their stores operate in rural areas and they don’t own the stores. This costs less to establish a store and provides a sort of escape plan to move stores if things don’t work out. Their store size is small, fewer employees, limited brands and products(around 12,000), stock of fresh produce is also less. All these things help them cut their cost and provide stuff at a cheaper price.


While all this sounds great, all that glitters is not gold. The store has been news many times now for not-so-good reasons. Many employees have reported security issues due to armed robberies and assaults.

In 2018, an employee named Robert Woods died when an armed assailant fired multiple shots in the store. This isn’t the only issue, many customers have complained that the store doesn’t have proper hygiene with dirty aisles, expired foods, bad employee behavior, rodent infestation, and many more. All this doesn’t paint a very good picture for the store image, and yet they don’t seem to care.

Due to its multiple expansions in rural areas and small towns, the company had become a thorn in the side for small businesses striving hard to survive. This led to some cities and towns passing laws to curb their expansion including Dollar Tree and Family Dollar.

Dollar General App

The app also provides weekly ads on offers and had various discount coupons for an affordable shopping experience.
