Retail discounter Family Dollar is opening a regional distribution center in early July in St. George that will be used to stock its stores in the West.
The center will initially employ 200 workers, with a second shift added at the start of next year. The workforce eventually will grow to 450 over a 20-year period.
The 800,000-square-foot building at the Fort Pierce Industrial Park is Family Dollar's 11th distribution center nationally. The Utah facility will ship up to 70,000 cartons of products daily.
