Southern Utah Is Home to Family Dollar’s $80 Million Distribution Center

04/02/2012
Family Dollar Stores, Inc. will locate its new $80 million, 800,000-square-foot, automated distribution complex in the Washington County city of St. George, Utah, to serve its western U.S. stores.

"Utah has long been known as the Crossroads of the West and Family Dollar's decision to expand in southern Utah further enhances the State's reputation as a premier logistics and distribution center," said Governor Gary R. Herbert. "Utah welcomes Family Dollar's new facility, and the hundreds of jobs it will create.

The Governor's Office of Economic Development Board approved an Economic Development Tax Increment Financing incentive of $3,764,578 million in tax credits, which will be doled-out during the 20 year life of the agreement, based on creating an estimated 350 to 450 jobs.

"Being a compelling place to work is more than just providing jobs. It's also about becoming part of the local community," said Howard Levine, Family Dollar Chairman and CEO. "We're looking forward to getting to know our new neighbors in St. George and the state of Utah and becoming an active member of the community for many years to come."

"We are delighted to have Family Dollar decide that St. George will be the location of the company's newest distribution center. Taking advantage of our productive workforce, hundreds of construction workers will build a valuable addition to Ft. Pierce Industrial Park that will make possible the several hundred new permanent positions," said St. George Mayor Daniel McArthur. "We join with all of the citizens of St. George and the surrounding cities in welcoming Family Dollar to Utah's Dixie!"

"The Family Dollar expansion in southern Utah once again demonstrates the power of collaboration, in which Utah economic development partners excel. The willingness of the local partners is what made this project possible," said Spencer Eccles, GOED executive director. "Utah continues to lead the nation in job growth and quality of life and we are very pleased Family Dollar will be contributing to our vibrant business community in southern Utah."
