NLR Celebrates new Dollar General Distribution Center

North Little Rock, Arkansas (August 9, 2023)…Earlier today, Mayor Terry Hartwick and Dollar General Chief Executive Officer Jeff Owen celebrated the new Dollar General Distribution Center with Governor Sarah Huckabee Sanders, Representatives Hill and Crawford, Little Rock Mayor Frank Scott, North Little Rock Chamber of Commerce President Derrell Hartwick, Little Rock Regional Chamber of Commerce Jay Chesshir as well as a host of state economic development leaders. North Little Rock is proud to be home to the impressive, 1.2 million square foot facility located on Arkansas Highway 70 in the east part of our city. This distribution center will provide employment opportunities in both North Little Rock and Central Arkansas. “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. We are excited to have Dollar General in North Little Rock,” shared Mayor Terry Hartwick. This facility will be used to distribute products to the Dollar General Stores statewide, including the new Dollar General Markets concept. Dollar General Markets stock produce, meat, and other foods that are not typically found in dollar stores. The distribution center is currently under construction and will house a cold storage component to deliver fresh products to stores. Construction should be completed on the new facility in 2024. Thanks to the City of North Little Rock’s Economic Development team and the North Little Rock Chamber of Commerce for securing and developing this project.
