$1.7 million settlement reached with Dollar General | Rutland Herald

BARRE — A $1.75 million settlement has been reached between the parent company of Dollar General stores and the attorney general’s office over price gouging of customers at stores in Vermont.

News of the settlement came Thursday at a news conference at Barre’s Vermont Foodbank. The Vermont Foodbbank will receive $100,000 of the settlement to compensate for low-income Vermonters who shop at Dollar General, many of them using ThreeSquaresVT benefits to buy food. The $100,000 will help food banks around the state to provide 165,000 meals to low-income Vermonters who are food insecure, food bank officials said. The remaining $1.65 million will go to the state’s General Fund.

Attorney General T.J. Donovan made the announcement about the settlement together with senior staffers and members of the weights and measures division at the Agency of Agriculture, Food and Markets, which cataloged numerous violations by Dollar General over several years.
