LOUISVILLE, KENTUCKY -- In April or May of 2013, the Family Dollar in Louisville, KY on Poplar Level Road near Indian Trail, refused to wait on someone because he was white. The white customer objected to their favoring black customers over white customers by letting blacks go first and making whites wait in line longer. After he objected to their racism, a male employee called him a "cracker" and told him to leave and never come back again. Also, the female black manager told him that "we don't want your kind in this store." Of course, this means she doesn't want whites in their store.
The white customer, who was a victim of their racism, complained to the manager and the district manager and it didn't do any good. The District Manager told him to stay out of that store. The white customer wrote a letter to the corporate office of Family Dollar complaining about discrimination against whites by their black employees, but they never responded.
We had spent a lot of money in that Family Dollar every month, like $300.00 a month since October 2011. If Family Dollar will not take action against this store in Louisville, KY, then we want our money back -- about $7,000.00. Any American who believes in equal protection of the law for ALL Americans, I say, boycott Family Dollar. We will boycott Family Dollar and tell our family and friends to do the same.
HOUSTON, TEXAS -- I visited the Family Dollar Store (#32) at 7302 Scott St., Houston, TX 77021 (713) 741-4046 on today, 8/25/2012 around 1:50 pm in the afternoon. When I went into the store it was not raining, although it looked as though it would at any minute. When I was coming out of the store, it was raining fiercely and water had begun to run under the door and was coming inside the building. The overhang truly needs to be repaired because the water is running directly down on the glass from the outside and running under the front door into the building. I was very careful because I did not want to slip and fall.
The building is not old so I was wondering why would Family Dollar approve a building with such poor maintenance. There is also a gap in the front door where the two doors are supposed to meet. You can visibly see that whomever is in charge has a chain that secures the doors and uses a lock for the chain. In summary, the overhang on the building needs to be repaired because there is definitely a hazard when it rains. Customers' safety is in jeopardy.
PORTSMOUTH, VIRGINIA -- I went to the one on Greenwood Drive. I was going to purchase a woman's cosmetic bag. The sign had 40 percent off. When I got to the register it rung up full price, I told the cashier about the price so she got her manager and said it was regular price. When I told him they had several more on the shelf he told his cashier he moved the other products. Never did he address me, he just rolled his eyes and refused to sell it to me for that price.
I started to fuss but I just walked out. I was devastated at his reaction and hope no one else have to deal with this. It was very bad customer service especially for me who goes there almost everyday. I think I need an apology from him and still my discount.
I just went into store 6427 with my elderly mother to return a couple shirts and get a mirror that was only 3 ft from the register and the ignorant you know what tried to make her get in the back of the line. He grabbed the mirror out of my hand and was one of the rudest people I have encountered in my life. I shop in this store all the time but after today I will never walk into one of those stores again. I will also bad mouth them to anyone and everyone. FAMILY DOLLAR SUCKS AND HAS THE POOREST CUSTOMER SERVICE.
FAYETTEVILLE, TENNESSEE -- Several weeks ago, while I was shopping in Family Dollar in Fayetteville, tn., One of the patrons had a seizure and fell to the floor. The only person with her was a toddler. The employee on duty took charge and handled the situation with extreme competence. She had another employee take the toddler away from the area and then called an ambulance for the patron.
While awaiting the ambulance she made the lady safe and comfortable. She made quick, efficient decisions and handled the emergency with good leadership skills. I was very much impressed by this employee's performance during an emergent situation.
SCRANTON, PENNSYLVANIA -- I shop at Family Dollar almost every day. Recently I accidentally grabbed an older checkbook that had 2 five in front of the check number on the bottom of the check which is a system they no longer use. It took about 5 days to realize the problem and I and the bank corrected it. Since then Family Dollar will no longer accept my checks saying I am a security risk.
The two other places I had a problem with have no problem with my checks now just Family Dollar. This was an honest error and Family Dollar will lose a lot. I am a foster mom so I don't carry a lot of cash or it gets stolen so I can't change my lifestyle. I used to spend a lot of money in that store and I can't believe this problem cannot be corrected. If not I will just take my business elsewhere. Thank you.
CONCORD, NORTH CAROLINA -- Family Dollar on Branchview has the rudest manager I have ever been in contact with!! You can't ask a question without her biting your head off. She's verbally abusive to the customers... I've had people tell me they stopped shopping in that store because of her!! I shop there a lot because the store is close to my house, but I will go to Dollar General which is 6 miles away just to avoid Donna at store number 251!! If you want to keep your customers happy you should replace her with someone that's able to provide good customer service! If you don't like being around people you should stay at home!!
FREDERICKSBURG, VIRGINIA -- I went in the store to pick up a few things and there were 5 of us waiting in the line to be served and there wasn't a cash register attendant present. When I did find someone I said excuse me and she didn't even look at me. She just said what. I think this is the worst customer service I have ever had.
BATON ROUGE, LOUISIANA -- Family Dollar @ 6190 Airline Hwy this morning. It was horrible service. The cashier pants was below his butt. The store wasn't clean at all. Mr. ** the store manager was trying to get it together but the cashier had such a bad attitude until he was cursing. It was just an unpleasant experience...
