CHESAPEAKE, Virginia – Dollar Tree, Inc. has celebrated the grand opening of its 25th U.S. distribution centre in Rosenberg, Texas. The company also recently started shipping product from its 26th U.S. facility in Ocala, Florida.

“Our two newest state-of-the-art distribution centres will enhance our supply chain efficiencies by providing stores in the southeastern and southwestern states,” said Michael Lech, chief logistics officer.

“Yesterday, we celebrated the creation of more than 400 jobs in the Rosenberg region and our team is appreciative of the partnerships and support provided by the City of Rosenberg, Rosenberg Development Corporation, Fort Bend Economic Development Council, and Texas Workforce Solutions.”

The plans for the approximate $130 million investment in the Texas distribution centre were announced in February 2019. The 1.2 million square foot facility will initially service Dollar Tree stores across a three state region.

To continue supporting its stores, the Company recently began shipping product from its Ocala, Florida DC. The first phase of the 1.2 million square foot facility opened last month, with the second phase expected to be completed in 2022.

“Dollar Tree continues to grow and our Ocala facility will play an integral role in servicing the needs of stores in Florida and the surrounding states,” added Lech.

Last year, Dollar Tree’s distribution network shipped and received more than 1.8 billion cases of merchandise through their facilities.

Dollar Tree, a Fortune 200 Company, operated 15,479 stores across 48 states and five Canadian provinces as of August 1, 2020. Stores operate under the brands of Dollar Tree, Family Dollar, and Dollar Tree Canada.
