Saving Doe! How To Get a Deer Out of a Michigan Dollar General
I have some questions for one of discount retail's highest-ranking officers. I almost hate to ask. Seriously, have you ever considered the power of the Dollar General? Don't doubt it, since I finished typing that sentence 11 DG's just popped up somewhere in the United States.
When a Doe Looked to Save a Buck in a Jackson, Michigan Dollar General
These stores are built, staffed, and opened so fast it doesn't seem natural. What is their power? Why am I sucked in by its black-and-yellow siren song? And finally: Why are there ALWAYS racks of unpacked inventory blocking the aisles?
I think I may have found the answer! In one store's case, those rolling piles of unstocked inventory were perfect for funneling an unwanted visitor out of the Prospect Street location of a Jackson, Michigan Dollar General.
Connie MacGuinness happened to be in the store on that August day and managed to capture the video and shared the following on Facebook:
While shopping at the Dollar General on Prospect I turned around and saw this…I was stunned for a quick minute then got out my phone. Apparently the deer walked through the front doors as they slid open.Great job by the Jackson Police and Jackson County Animal Control.They made a barricade and escorted the deer out the back door. ￼
So the next time you're in a Dollar General wondering why you can't reach the Hostess display because of some unstocked Bounty, remember that those carts are there as a barrier to place to yourself and a deer. And now you know.
