Dollar Tree has opened the doors to its 23rd distribution center, and another is on the way.
The company’s newest facility is located in Warrensburg, Missouri. The distribution center will service the 11 of the company’s stores located across 11 Midwestern states.
Dollar Tree invested approximately $110 million in the facility, according to the company.
The discounter also recently broke ground on its 24th distribution center in Morrow County, Ohio, scheduled to open in summer 2019. This new facility will be 1.2 million sq. ft., and is expected to create 400 new jobs in the local community.
Both buildings will bolster Dollar Tree’s distribution network, which shipped and received more than 1.7 billion cases of merchandise in 2017.
Dollar Tree operates nearly 15,000 stores across the United States and five Canadian provinces.
