To boost its capacities in the Midwest, Dollar General plans to build a combination dry and DG Fresh distribution center in Blair, NE.
The facility is an $85 million investment in Nebraska’s Washington County. At full capacity, the 800,000-square-foot facility will create 400 new jobs and support more than 1,500 stores in the Midwest. Plans call for construction to begin next month with completion currently slated for early 2022.
Blair’s dual facility will be the first combination building constructed by the company, Dollar General noted, and will include 650,000 square feet of dry goods and 150,000 square feet of fresh food items.
“We are excited for the addition of our first-ever, ground-up dual distribution center, which is to be built in Blair, and look forward to expanding our mission of serving others in the Midwest,” said Mike Kindy, Dollar General’s evp/global supply chain.
