Dollar General Corporation Key Developments

Dollar General Begun Construction of New Distribution Center in Janesville, Wisconsin

Dollar General Corporation announced it has begun construction on its new distribution center in Janesville, Wisconsin. It will be the 14th facility in the retailer’s growing distribution network. At full capacity, the approximately one million square-foot Dollar General facility is expected to employ more than 550 people to serve stores in Wisconsin and surrounding states. Assuming no significant construction or other delays, Dollar General plans to begin hiring in late summer 2016 with operations expected to begin in December 2016. The Wisconsin Department of Economic Development estimates a total of 1,073 jobs would be positively impacted by the new facility within five years, taking into account the construction jobs that result from the project as well as the ripple effects the increased employment will have on the local economy. Clayco Inc. will be serving as general contractor for the project. Leo A Daly is the building design company and Élan Design Lab Inc. is the civil design company. The new distribution center is expected to service more than 1,000 stores in the Upper Midwest. Dollar General currently has 122 stores in Wisconsin with more than 900 employees. Dollar General’s 13 other distribution centers are located in Alabama, California, Florida, Indiana, Kentucky, Mississippi, Missouri, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Texas and Virginia.

Dollar General Corporation Eliminates Approximately 255 Positions

Dollar General Corporation announced that, as part of a broader initiative aimed at proactively improving efficiencies and reducing expenses, the company is restructuring its corporate support functions to eliminate approximately 255 positions. Substantially all of the eliminations are effective immediately. The restructuring includes approximately 115 vacant positions. All impacted employees have been notified. Positions at the store level will not be impacted by this restructuring.

Dollar General Corp. to Build Midwest Distribution Center in Janesville

Dollar General Corp. selected Janesville over communities in two other states for an almost 1-million-square-foot distribution center that would have 552 employees by 2019. The Wisconsin Economic Development Corp. pledged $5.5 million in tax credits through 2019. The city of Janesville would subsidize the project with tax incremental financing, and the state may also award Transportation Economic Assistance grants to the center. It would be built in Janesville's Highway 11 business park. Pending final approvals, construction could begin next month and the facility could open by the end of 2016.
