Dollar Tree has celebrated the grand opening of its 23rd distribution center in Warrensburg, Missouri, with a ribbon cutting ceremony followed by a celebration with the company’s newest distribution center associates and their families, management and representatives from the local community.
The plans for the approximate $110 million distribution center investment were announced in April 2017. The Warrensburg facility will service Dollar Tree’s Midwestern U.S. stores across 11 states.
“We are pleased to celebrate the grand opening of our new Warrensburg distribution center,” said Gary Philbin, president and CEO, Dollar Tree. “This facility represents a key component to supporting Dollar Tree’s continued growth. We are proud to be able to create jobs in the western Missouri region and are appreciative of the partnerships and support provided by the state of Missouri, Johnson County and the city of Warrensburg.”
In addition, Dollar Tree also recently broke ground on its 24th distribution center in Morrow County, Ohio, which is scheduled to open in summer 2019. The new facility will be 1.2 million square feet and is expected to create 400 new jobs in the local community.
