WHIZ News has a sneak peek of one of Zanesville’s newest and largest companies. Dollar General Distribution Center is 1.2 million square foot facility at Eastpointe Industrial Park. The site services more than 650-Dollar General stores throughout the country. And within the next couple of years, the Center is expecting that number to increase by a couple hundred. More than 400 people work at the Center and ship out thousands of items every day. Shipping cases to stores is pretty high tech. There are 64 shipping lanes at the Center. Each lane is coded to a store, a scanner reads the cases as they go by and sends them to the correct lane. Dollar General plans to hire more than 600 people in all to help run the massive facility. Although this helps out the local job market, the store wants to do more such as community fundraisers and children’s activities. Dollar General will hold its Grand Opening June 9. The Center accepts employment applications the first Friday of every month from 1 to 3 p.m.
