    ncveteranwife: I had the same problem with FL, I should have done what you did.

    phyllis3066, I think it depends on the individual store and the mgmt. When Food Lion was doing a big promotion on yogurt, I went to a FL in Garner on my way to the library, and the promotion did not ring up and no one working in the store knew what I was talking about. I apologized when I abandoned my buggy full of yogurt and drove to my regular FL at 401/Ten Ten and everything rang up correctly.

    ncveteranwife: it was in the Wilson, Wayne area sales paper, not sure if I'm going to try to new promotion, I was in DG for 20 minutes or so trying to get it straight,don't know if its worth it if I have to spend that much time again getting it straight.

    phyllis3066: I did not know it was in last week's circular and I have not decided if I am going to try it or not, but if I do, I hope they know what's going on. I hate that happened to you, but I'm glad they let you get a $5 item for free.

    I tried to do the proctor and gamble deal that was in last weeks dollar general circular, ad stated if you purchased $20.00 of certain p&g items you would receive a $5.00 coupon off your next purchase, also said the coupon will print at the bottom of my receipt I purchased the correct items to total over $20.00 and the coupon didn't print, no one knew about the ad not even the manager on duty, and this was the last day of the sale, manager had to read and reread the ad, then told me it had to be a p&g item, show him on my package they were all p&g items, and show him in the sale paper they were items included in the sale. He then had to call someone and explain what was going on, after a lengthy conversation with that person he hung up and told me I could purchased any item $5.00 and get it for free, which I did. just irritates me that so many times the customer knows more than workers know makes me wonder if they even look at their own ads.
