Wednesday afternoon state and community leaders gathered in Little Rock for an event celebrating the new Dollar General Distribution Center currently under construction on the east side of North Little Rock.
The project, 1.2 million square feet, was announced last year and construction is already underway. It is expected to open sometime next year.
“The North Little Rock Chamber of Commerce and economic team in our city have done an excellent job in developing and utilizing property throughout our city,” said North Little Rock Mayor Terry Hartwick. “We are excited to have Dollar General in North Little Rock.”
The facility is near the already Amazon distribution center and another warehouse and distribution center for Lowes is planned for the area.
Also planned is a Tractor Supply distribution center in Maumelle that will join the Dillard's distribution center in that city when it also opens next year.
The Dollar General facility will also feature a refrigerated section for things like produce, meat and dairy items.
