Dollar Tree Selects KC Area for Distribution Center

by Morgan Bell | May 02, 2017

Dollar Tree recently announced plans to build a 1.2 million-sq.-ft. distribution facility in Warrensburg, Missouri. Dollar Tree expects to create 375 new jobs within three years, and the facility will support Dollar Tree’s retail store network in the Midwestern U.S. The facility will see 150-200 inbound/outbound trucks per day.

Headquartered in Chesapeake, Virginia, Dollar Tree is the largest and most successful single-price-point retailer in North America. In 2016, Dollar Tree jumped 150 spots on the Fortune 500, from 330 to 180. Dollar Tree operates more than 14,300 stores across 48 states and five Canadian provinces, along with 22 distribution centers.

“Dollar Tree is a large and growing organization,” said Dollar Tree CEO Bob Sasser. “We have been very impressed with the business-friendly approach that the State of Missouri, Johnson County and the City of Warrensburg have provided. This project demonstrates our commitment to western Missouri by creating hundreds of jobs in the region. We are proud to become a bigger part of the local community.”

The company expects the distribution center to be operational in May 2018.
