There is a new distribution center coming to southern Utah and bringing jobs too. The Fortune 300 retailer Family Dollar Distribution Center will add a new facility in the Washington County area of southern Utah. They will be investing in close to $80 million to build a new 800,000 square foot center. The new center will be aimed to serve all western stores.
Ground breaking on the new facility will be soon and the center plans to begin operations by the summer of 2013. This will be a nice boost to the Washington County economy with hundreds of job openings available as new leaders in manufacturing and distribution call southern Utah home.
There will be over 450 full-time positions to fill as per the agreement with the state of Utah. Job openings will include full retirement benefits as well as health benefits. Hiring for all new positions will begin in the spring of 2013, so get ready. Family Dollar is hoping to become part of the community by becoming an active member for many years to come.
There are currently over 7,100 Family Dollar stores in 45 states across the country. That amounts to over 50,000 team members. And by expanding into southern Utah, the Family Dollar is once again demonstrating the power of collaboration.
