Dollar Tree Plans 1.2-million square foot distribution Hub In Warrensburg, Missouri

04/19/2017
Dollar Tree will invest approximately $110 million to build a 1.2 million square foot distribution facility on Highway 13 at Brady Commerce Park, 58.4 miles east of Kansas City, in Warrensburg, Missouri.

According to the Missouri Department of Economic Development the facility expects to see 150-200 inbound/outbound trucks per day. The company 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 company expects the distribution center to be operational in May 2018. The project is contingent upon the approval of local incentives.

“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.”

“Dollar Tree’s decision to grow its business in Missouri is great news for people in Warrensburg. This new distribution center means hundreds of new quality jobs for families. We’re fighting to grow jobs every day, and we’re grateful to Dollar Tree for recognizing that Missouri is open for business and our people are ready to work,” said Governor Eric Greitens.

“Dollar Tree is a phenomenal company and we are thrilled to welcome them to Missouri,” said CEO of Missouri Partnership Steve Johnson. “This was a project that required coordination at all levels and the joint efforts of the State, our team, Johnson County, KCP&L, Spire, and the City of Warrensburg was excellent. It is great to see yet another company take advantage of Missouri’s unique distribution and logistics strengths.”

"The City of Warrensburg is well positioned to continue the positive momentum currently taking place in the community,” Warrensburg Mayor Bryan Jacobs said. “Businesses are choosing Warrensburg, more jobs are being created, which will ultimately lead to increased revenue for the city. While we have long known the great assets Warrensburg holds, we are excited that Dollar Tree saw the great opportunities as well.”?
