Dollar General is boosting its supply chain capacity with recent expansions in its global network. The discount retailer has opened a ground-up, dual facility in Blair, Nebraska, along with permanent regional distribution hubs in Newnan, Georgia, and Fort Worth, Texas. The company also has expansion plans for existing facilities in Jonesville, South Carolina, and Amsterdam, New York.
The additions to the supply chain network aim to improve efficiencies, create jobs, and have a positive economic impact. Dollar General is committed to supporting store growth, better-serving customers, and contributing to local communities. The Blair distribution centre, the company’s first ground-up dual facility, combines the strengths of traditional and DG Fresh supply chain networks, enabling self-distribution of frozen and refrigerated products.
Dollar General has increased its distribution centre storage capacity by over 2 million square feet with the new regional facilities in Newnan and Fort Worth. These facilities will serve as intermediary points between import locations and Dollar General’s distribution centre network, providing faster and more efficient operations.
The expansion in Jonesville, South Carolina, involved an investment of approximately $45 million and added 250,000 square feet of space to the distribution centre. Additionally, Dollar General has plans to build a 170,000-square-foot DG Fresh facility in New York, complementing its existing traditional distribution centre.
Furthermore, Dollar General is constructing three new distribution centres in North Little Rock, Arkansas; Aurora, Colorado; and Salem, Oregon. These upcoming facilities will further strengthen the company’s supply chain infrastructure.
With these expansions, Dollar General is reinforcing its commitment to enhancing its supply chain capabilities, enabling efficient operations, and meeting the growing demands of its expanding store network.
