Dollar General is building a new distribution centre in Longview, Texas. The construction of the facility in Gregg County is expected to begin in early 2018. The facility will likely create approximately 400 new jobs and serve about 1,000 Dollar General retail locations in Texas and the southeast. Dollar General currently has more than 1,400 stores in Texas.

Dollar General plans to make the centre its 17th facility in the major discount retailer's distribution network and second in Texas.

Construction should begin in early 2018 pending the receipt of all required governmental permits and development approvals and the absence of unforeseen circumstances.

"Dollar General is excited to expand our supply chain and distribution operations in the Lone Star state with this announcement," said Todd Vasos, Dollar General's chief executive officer. "This facility is expected to support Dollar General's growing store count in Texas where we already operate more than 1,400 current locations and have complementary operations in San Antonio. We look forward to the facility helping better serve our customers with value and convenience, as well as creating career opportunities for approximately 400 future Dollar General employees. I would like to express my gratitude for our partnership with Texas governor Greg Abbott, leadership in both Gregg County and the city of Longview and the Longview Economic Development Corporation, all of whom helped support this project."

In 2014, Dollar General announced plans to build its first Texas distribution centre in San Antonio, Texas. Located in Bexar County, that facility celebrated its grand opening in 2016.

In addition to the full-time jobs the facility is expected to create, Dollar General also anticipates a strong economic impact through hundreds of jobs needed to construct the nearly 1,000,000 square foot building. Dollar General has selected Clayco as the project's official general contractor, Leo A Daly as the architectural engineering firm and Elan Design as the civil engineering firm.

Dollar General takes a number of factors into consideration when choosing distribution centres including its location, its proximity to Dollar General stores, its local business environment and workforce and the availability of local and state economic incentives, among many others.

Texas governor Greg Abbott said, "I am proud that companies like Dollar General continue to invest in our top-notch workforce, and I am excited about this partnership and the positive impact it will have on the Longview community."

"A project of this magnitude absolutely requires a team effort and creative ideas," said Wayne Mansfield, Longview Economic Development Corporation CEO. "We are grateful for the spirit of cooperation between Dollar General and our local economic development partners in order to bring this project to completion. The result of this collaboration will provide 400 jobs for our citizens and expand our tax base. The successful recruitment of Dollar General is testimony to the competitive advantages Longview and Gregg County possess. Dollar General's reputation of success will fit well with our community."
