Dollar Tree, Inc. Announces Expansion Of Distribution Center In Marietta, Oklahoma

Dollar Tree, Inc. (NASDAQ: DLTR), North America's leading operator of discount variety stores selling everything for $1 or less, has announced that it intends to expand its distribution center in Marietta, Oklahoma by an additional 400,000 square feet. More than 100 full time positions will be created as a result of the expansion.

The facility in Marietta opened in 2003 and is currently 603,000 square feet. This facility supplies products to our stores across eleven states, including all of Oklahoma, Kansas, Colorado, New Mexico and Texas, and portions of Louisiana, Arkansas, Missouri, Nebraska, South Dakota, Wyoming and Montana.

Construction on the expansion is scheduled to start in February 2013 and should be completed in the autumn of 2013. The total cost of the expansion is expected to be approximately $25 million, financed by Dollar Tree using available cash.

“Dollar Tree has grown steadily for 26 years,” said Bob Sasser, President and Chief Executive Officer of Dollar Tree, Inc. "The expansion of our Marietta Distribution Center is consistent with our long-standing practice of building infrastructure to support future growth of our business. The additional capacity will allow Dollar Tree to continue to expand its reach and provide more value to more customers throughout the region.”

“Over the past ten years, we have been extremely impressed with the business-friendly approach and support that the State of Oklahoma and Marietta have provided Dollar Tree. This project is a reflection of our commitment to the Marietta area. The expansion will enable us to continue growing in the community while creating jobs and exciting career paths for our associates. We are proud to be a part of this community."
