Dollar Tree is planning a new distribution center project in Rosenberg, Fort Bend County, TX.
According to the company, the retailer plans to invest approximately $130 million in the facility, which would create more than 300 new jobs.
The company’s final decision to establish a new distribution facility in Rosenberg is predicated on the formal approvals of the mutually agreed upon packages with the City Council, the Rosenberg Development Corporation, and the Fort Bend County Commissioners Court. Also required are the annexation of the 140-acre site and the creation of the Reinvestment Zones, by the city and county, as well as the successful closing on the purchase of the site.
“Dollar Tree is a large and growing organization,” said Gary Philbin, Dollar Tree’s president and CEO. “We currently operate more than 1,600 Dollar Tree and Family Dollar stores in the state of Texas and we are excited about our new distribution center project in Fort Bend County. We expect this new, state-of-the-art facility will enhance our supply chain efficiencies and provide convenient access to our network of stores through reduced stem miles, all while creating hundreds of new jobs.”
Dollar Tree will invest in the construction of the new 1.2 million-square-feet distribution facility that will provide service directly to Dollar Tree and Family Dollar stores. Construction is planned to commence in the April to May 2019 period, with the facility expected to be operational by summer 2020.
