Dollar Tree has celebrated the grand opening of its 25th U.S. distribution center in Rosenberg, Texas, with a small ceremony. The company also recently started shipping product from its 26th U.S. facility in Ocala, Florida.
The plans for the approximate $130 million investment in the Texas distribution center were announced in February 2019. The 1.2 million square foot facility will initially service Dollar Tree stores across a three-state region.
To continue supporting its stores, the company recently began shipping product from its Ocala, Florida, distribution center. The first phase of the 1.2 million square foot facility opened last month, with the second phase expected to be completed in 2022.
“Our two newest state-of-the-art distribution centers will enhance our supply chain efficiencies by providing stores in the southeastern and southwestern states with essential products, at great values, for our customers,” said Michael Lech, chief logistics officer, Dollar Tree. “Yesterday, we celebrated the creation of more than 400 jobs in the Rosenberg region and our team is appreciative of the partnerships and support provided by the City of Rosenberg, Rosenberg Development Corporation, Fort Bend Economic Development Council, and Texas Workforce Solutions.”
