    I used to service Dollar general locations through IPT but now I am hearing they are losing the contract. I had a good deal with them and would like to continue servicing. Anyone hear about how Dollar General is handling their snow this year?

    A company called "Innovations in managment" is handling the dollar generals. I mow the dollar general for them and they handle the snow removal too. They are late paying.... but do pay

    I must be lucky with the DG that I service. Hutton Developement out of Chattanooga is in charge and they are great to work with.
