Dollar General Corporation Key Developments
Dollar General Begun Construction of New Distribution Center in Janesville, Wisconsin
Nov 16 15
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.
