Ohio Yost says Dollar General continues to charge higher-than-posted prices in some stores

Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost has asked a Butler County judge for a temporary restraining order against the Tennessee-based Dollar General discount chain. He says some stores continue to charge customers higher prices than marked on store shelves on some items, violating the Ohio Consumer Sales Practices Act.

Despite a November 2022 lawsuit over the issue, Yost says the problem persists, and some stores continue to fail audits.
In Franklin County, Auditor Michael Stinziano required certain stores to post stickers at cash registers advising customers to check the prices.

Yost says since the lawsuit was filed 10 weeks ago, over 100 complaints have been filed with his office.
