Dollar General will construct a new distribution center in Longview, TX, that will feed products to approximately 1,000 of the retailer’s locations in the Lone Star state and across the southeast.
Company officials said construction is expected to begin in early 2018 pending the receipt of all required governmental permits and development approvals.
“This facility is expected to support Dollar General’s growing store count in Texas where we already operate more than 1,400 current locations and have complementary operations in San Antonio,” said Todd Vasos, Dollar General’s CEO.
Company officials said the new location will create 400 permanent jobs.
Dollar General currently has more than 1,400 stores and over 12,000 employees in Texas and has 15 distribution centers that are located in Alabama, California, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Kentucky, Mississippi, Missouri, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Texas, Virginia and Wisconsin. The company’s 16th distribution center in Amsterdam, New York, is currently under construction.
