Today, Governor Tom Wolf announced that Dollar General Corporation has established a new cold storage facility in Schuylkill County. At full capacity, the project is expected to support the creation of 100 new jobs.
Dollar General’s expansion in Schuylkill County is part of the company’s new initiative toward a strategic shift to the self-distribution of perishable goods sold in its stores. The project includes the company’s purchase of a 148,000-square-foot building in Pottsville, which is expected to create 100 new, full-time jobs over the next three years.
“Dollar General is excited to expand in Pennsylvania through the collaboration with Governor Wolf and the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development,” said Mike Kindy, Dollar General’s executive vice president of global supply chain. “As Dollar General embarks on our DG Fresh initiative, we sincerely appreciate the partnership from state and local leaders on this project and look forward to a longstanding presence throughout Pennsylvania.”
