Penny Policy Explained –
Part 1 of 3
Here is the recap from a previous post The Penny Policy at Dollar General.
This is not your typical coupon matchups, you can’t go into the store and ask the employee “Where are your Penny Items? It doesn’t work like that. Instead these are clearance items that were supposed to be pulled from the shelves and for whatever reason, they were missed. When these items are missed, then on Tuesday morning they should ring up as “A Penny”. See Dollar General Policy below for better understanding of the Penny Policy.
Monday-Identify and Remove PRP items from the Sales Floor:
- In preparation for completing the PRP Event, the specific product should be pulled from the sales floor and by close of business. Stage in the Receiving Room.
- The product will still ring at the register at the current clearance price until the following day.
- All areas of the sales floor must be checked to ensure that ALL PRP items are pulled.
Tuesday-Product will Ring at the Register at ( 0.01 ) one cent
- The product will ring at a penny.
- If any additional PRP items are identified by the store team, immediately pull from the sales floor.
- If any penny item is identified by a customer, ALWAYS sell the product to the costumer at 1cent. If we fail to pull all of the penny product from the floor, it is never appropriate to deny the sale or argue with the customer.
- After taking care of the customer, locate any additional penny items and remove from the sales floor.
Wednesday-Begin the PRP
The PRP is live and should be processed by the deadline using the instructions provided in START.
In my next post I will explain the Dollar General bar codes and sales tags. This will help you in your hunt for penny items at Dollar General.
