USA: Dollar General preps to open $35M cold storage center in New York

Dollar General will start construction next year on a $35.4 million cold storage center after the discount retailer was awarded tax incentives last week from the Montgomery County Industrial Development Agency, reports media platform The Business Journals.

The 150,000-square-foot Dollar General fresh center will open in Florida, N.Y., and is expected to create 150 jobs. It will also supply goods to approximately 1,200 Dollar General Stores.

The center will be located across the road from the $91 million, 750,000-square-foot distribution center it recently constructed in 2018.

Once completed, the discount retailer will become the fifth-largest chain operating one of the biggest distribution hubs in the region, ranking behind Target, Ace, Amazon, and SLA Transport - Universal Warehouse Inc.

Dollar General filed for its incentive application last summer and was approved for approximately $2.5 million in sales tax exemptions and $2.2 million in property tax exemptions.

Last month, Dollar General also announced expansions in its global supply chain network including the opening of its first ground-up, dual facility in Blair, Neb., and two permanent regional distribution hubs in Newnan, Ga., and Fort Worth, Texas. The company also announced expansion plans in Jonesville, S.C., and Amsterdam, N.Y., at existing facilities.

The discount retailer is also constructing three more distribution centers in North Little Rock, Ark.; Aurora, Colorado.; and Salem, Oregon.
