Dollar General opens its first dual distribution center in Blair, Nebraska, enhancing efficiency and creating over 400 new jobs.

At full capacity, the nearly 1 million-square-foot building will be able to house more than 1,000 DG stores.
Today, Dollar General celebrated the grand opening of its distribution center in Blair, Nebraska, with employees, their families, and elected officials. As a way to show its commitment to the local community, the company gave a gift to the Washington County Food Pantry at Joseph’s Coat.

The Dollar General Blair distribution center is the company’s first dual facility. It combines the best parts of both the standard supply chain and the DG Fresh supply chain to make both more efficient. It cost the company about $140 million to build. The building, which is about 1 million square feet, is projected to create more than 400 new jobs and help more than 1,000 DG stores run at full capacity.

Dollar General’s CEO, Jeff Owen, said, “Today’s celebration not only marks another growth milestone for our global supply chain teams, but also shows that we are still investing in Nebraska.” “On behalf of the whole Dollar General team, I’d like to thank state, regional, and local teams, especially Governor Jim Pillen, the Gateway Development Corporation, and the city of Blair, for continuing to work with us and help us out. We’re sure that this project will help us serve our customers better, give our employees more job chances, and build a strong, positive relationship with the Blair community.

More than 1,700 Nebraskans work for Dollar General right now in its stores and shipping centers.

“Congratulations to Dollar General on the grand opening of its innovative distribution center in Blair,” Pillen said. “Nebraska’s hard-working people, central location, and good roads make our state a great hub for companies moving their goods across America. Dollar General, thank you for putting money into Nebraska and making more than 400 new jobs in Blair.
