Today, Governor Mike Parson stopped in Warrensburg for the ribbon cutting at Dollar Tree’s 1.2-million-square-foot distribution center.  In addition to the new facility, Dollar Tree plans to invest $110 million and create 375 new jobs by 2020.  The new facility was first announced in April 2017.  

“Warrensburg is a great community, and Dollar Tree is a great addition to the region,” said Governor Parson. “Dollar Tree recognized Missouri’s business-friendly approach, our strengths in logistics and distribution, and the talent we have available in the region. We are proud that Dollar Tree has chosen Missouri to invest and create jobs.”

“We are pleased to celebrate the grand opening of our new Warrensburg distribution center,” said Dollar Tree’s President and Chief Executive Officer Gary Philbin. “This facility represents a key component to supporting Dollar Tree’s continued growth. We are pleased to be able to create jobs in the western Missouri region and are appreciative of the partnerships and support provided by the State of Missouri, Johnson County, and the City of Warrensburg.” 

Dollar Tree has grown to become the largest and most successful single-price-point retailer in North America with 14,900 stores in operation across 48 states and five Canadian provinces.  One of only 23 distribution centers, the new Dollar Tree facility plans to support its retail store network throughout the Midwest.  The facility expects to see inbound/outbound traffic of around 150-200 trucks per day.
