“We have built a strong team in Janesville, and this new facility strength-ens our distribution network and our ability to serve customers,” said Todd Vasos, Dollar General’s CEO.

Dollar General’s 13 other distribution centers are located in Alachua, Florida; Ardmore, Oklahoma; Bessemer, Alabama; Bethel, Pennsylvania; Fulton, Missouri; Indianola, Mississippi; Jonesville, South Carolina; Lebec, California; Marion, Indiana; San Antonio, Texas; Scottsville, Kentucky; South Boston, Virginia; and Zanesville, Ohio.
