Dollar General’s distribution network keeps expanding

Dollar General has opened its 15th distribution center.

The facility is located in Jackson, Georgia. Dollar General and state and local agencies invested approximately $85 million in the construction of the center.

“This strategically-located distribution center will not only allow Dollar General to contribute to the local economy in Georgia, but it also positions us to further support our store growth strategy throughout the southeast United States,” said Todd Vasos, Dollar General’s CEO.

Dollar General first announced its plan to open the Georgia distribution center in May 2016. The company began shipping from the center in fall 2017 and currently, the nearly one-million-square-foot center supports approximately 750 stores in the southeast United States.

For the Jackson project, Dollar General partnered with Clayco as the project’s official general contractor, Leo A. Daly as the architectural engineering firm and Elan Design as the civil engineering firm. The retailer operated 14,609 stores in 44 states as of March 2, 2018.
