I hear dollar store in town needs a manager again. Needs a whole crew I think. Needs some good hard workin people that's not affraid to get their hands dirty. I know we have some left in this town. It needs a deceint manager .the last 2 that's been there was lazy and theiven. Come on town this is our store.when we go in a place like that and its filthy and nothin on the shelves and what is on the shelf has got green hair growin on it then it time we do somethin about it..gettim out and bring new ones in.keep our businesses to where people will want to go in there.

i am just glad that the manager from the store by the highway takes it upon her self to try and help the down town store as much as she can. I think they really need to give her a really good at a boy or something cause you always can count on her to be at her store and make sure that it is nice and clean with stocked. I hope that the district manager or someone from the headquarters is reading this cause she works circles around the other employee's and she desirves everything they can give her.

I always stop in both Dollar General stores when I drop by Cairo. Both stores seem pretty well stocked when I'm there and I think the staff does it's best to keep the place up.

DG is one of the brighter spots in Cairo and I certainly hope someday more similar businesses move in. Family Dollar would offer competition. Someday, perhaps a Pamida store? Cairo needs business growth, one square foot at a time.

Yes... apparently theft is a problem. I have no simple solutions. It's a cultural thing that could take decades to correct itself.

Thank You Cairo for waving to me as I drive through town, stop to say hello and do whatever business I can while dropping in. I'm always looking for a positive light and I always seem to find one in Cairo.

those employees at the outside of cairo store not only keep their store up but they go to the down town store and mounds storeand work to keep those stores in order. That one lady is always in all three of the stores stocking .personally I don't see how she does it.all of cairo needs to give her a personal thank you.

Fred's is an excellent idea. Would give more selection & competition. I hope some more stores like these will set up in Cairo.

this is the best thing that could’ve happened
any longer and i wouldn’t have made it
it’s not a war no, it’s not a rapture
i’m just a person but you can’t take it
the same tricks that once fooled me
they won’t get you anywhere
i’m not the same kid from your memory
well now i can fend for myself

don’t wanna hear your sad songs
i don’t wanna feel your pain
when you swear it’s all my fault
cause you know we’re not the same,
we’re not the same
oh we’re not the same
but i guess you can’t accept that the change is good (hey)
it’s good (hey)
it's good

you treat me just like another stranger
well it’s nice to meet you sir

These people r just plain in a mad mood way.look at the store they work in.that would sure put me in a bad mood. Quit standin around and get to work. Make ur place better its no wonder customers come up in there and give u heck. The employees r in bad moods all the time and its because the store is dirty and dreary all the time. Then when customers come in that dreary and dirty slaps them in the face..and u say well they don't like it they can go somewhere else. No they can't a lot of those customers have to walk. Give them somehing to walk too.

Everything in that town is dirty, what a dump. To bad the river didn't take it out.

If you don't like the way the Dollar Store is run, write the home office. They have people who go from store to store getting them back in line. After that it's up to the managers and employees until the next time complaints start coming in.

Before you start complaining to the higher ups, try saying something pleasant to the help everytime you go in. Could be it's as much the customers' faults as it is the employees.

I worked at the Mounds Dollar General. I came in for others often no matter what I had going on, I came in on my days off to stock because it wasn't done by other employees when it should have,was always on time and friendly, even scrubbed the bathrooms that had poo on the walls (which by the way is very nasty ppl). I did everything that was asked of me and then some. I worked hard and wanted to keep my job. I was sent home before for my pants not being dark enough but I guess now you can wear whatever you want. I was fired for a silly reason. So the Mounds Dollar store doesn't want good workers.

the boss never wants someone who shows him or her up.
