Dollar General has plans to double its fresh distribution program this year:
“Dollar General will double the scale of its DG Fresh distribution program by the end of 2020 — accelerating growth of the 1-year-old program, CEO Todd Vasos said on the company’s Thursday earnings call. By the end of 2020, DG Fresh will increase its warehouse count from five to up to 10 and serve 12,000 stores, up from 6,000.”
P.S. Fresh remains a huge opportunity for discounters, big box stores, and other retailers. Are you interested in optimizing your fresh grocery supply chain? Get in touch with us at 8th & Walton today and schedule a consultation.
