Dollar General is expanding its global supply chain network.

The retailer announced the opening of its first ground-up, dual facility in Blair, NE, and two permanent regional distribution hubs in Newnan, GA, and Fort Worth, TX. 

The company also announced expansion plans in Jonesville, SC, and Amsterdam, NY, at existing facilities.
“The recent additions to our supply chain network aim to provide greater efficiencies, create additional jobs and drive positive economic impact,” said Tony Zuazo, Dollar General’s executive vice president of global supply chain. “We’re excited to continue growing our distribution center network to further support store growth and to better serve our customers and local communities.”
Dollar General recently opened its Blair, NE, distribution center, which is expected to create approximately 400 new careers at full capacity and represents an approximate $140 million investment in Washington County.  Its first ground-up dual distribution center, Blair combines the efficiencies of traditional and DG Fresh supply chain networks, which is its strategic, multi-phased shift to self-distribution of frozen and refrigerated products. The DG Fresh network is currently delivering to more than 19,000 stores from 12 facilities.  A formal grand opening celebration is scheduled for summer 2023.
The retailer also recently increased distribution center storage capacity by more than two million square feet through two new permanent regional facilities in Newnan, GA, and Fort Worth, TX.  Each facility will employ approximately 200 individuals at full capacity and serve as an intermediary point between import locations and Dollar General’s distribution center network.
