This is for You farmers petitioning for the return of knowledgeable store managers at RK. You will have to go straight to the top because they hired a VP John Somebody from walmart and he is dragging in his cronies from walmart. Here are some of the facts. Early in 2013 they opened the Bloomington store and Roberta White was the manager [now in TH] but in order to get her she needed a job for her... Read more

This is my second comment.....I heard from my Rural King home office contact, that someone fired Bob the clueless store manager in Paris.......I'm the Edgar County farmer that started the petition to hire back the former store manager and to refuse to give them our farming dollars until they train their store managers on the farm needs and products...I guess after 575 signatures and 100's of...

I recently purchased a 15.9 lb bag of pedigree dog food. It was on sale for $20.99. I stored it in a large container in its own package and used it for two days. Then I noticed worms in the container. I then checked the dog food very carefully and found worms and small black bugs in the food. The expiration date was listed as 03 21 15. The bar code is 2310029161. I have since thrown the... Read more

Two months ago we returned some items to your spring hill Florida store and we were given gift cards. We went into the store and spent well over $100 and tried to use them and they had a $0 balance. We were told we would have to wait for a corporate check. It has now been over a month, I have not received the two checks we were told would be issued or a call back. You have now taken money from my... Read more

I don't recommend buying the vehicle batteries. I got because they were cheap the two of them have gone back within a year, the original and the replacement, and now they want me to come up with paperwork for them. I'll spend more money on gas driving back and forth than the batteries Is worth! Add comment

Circleville management needs looked into in the Circleville, Ohio store, my daughter works there and I have seen alot. The managers belittle employees right in front of customers, and the favortism, I have never in my life seen so much favortism in a store before. If a manager does not like you, they will make it a living *** for you until you quit, they tried this with my daughter but she has... Read more

The new Paris,IL store manager for the past year has been sleeping with his female Asst. Manager since March 2014 or so. Bob the new manager has been bragging about the conquest for the past four months. So sad.The employee stated he is getting a divorce now,... Read more

I have shopped at the Paris, IL and Terre Haute Rural Kings stores since 1985. We own about 500 acres of farmland around Clinton,IN. Since the beginning of March 2014 both of these stores are dumps. They are messy and the store managers are unavailable to customers. My farm operation spends between 15 and 20 thousand dollars per year between these two stores. The Paris,IL Rural King is a huge...
