Dollar General: Accelerated Western Expansion Plans

Key Dollar General Metrics

  • Dollar General announced plans to open three new distribution centers in Arkansas, Colorado, and Oregon. It currently operates 28 DCs, each of which supports 700 stores. Each of the 1M sqaure foot facilities will help support the company's growing private fleet presence. As shown in the figure below from DG’s 2021 annual report, DG has ample room for expansion throughout the West.
  • At the end of 1Q 2022, Dollar General had 950 tractors in its private fleet and expects to more than double its private fleet count from F'21 levels to ~40% of its outbound transportation fleet by year end.
