Dollar General is hiring for its new distribution center in Georgia.

According to a news release, Dollar General is nearing completion of construction of a nearly 1 million square foot distribution center in Jackson, Ga.

Last year, Gov. Nathan Deal announced plans for the distribution center, which was said to be an $85 million investment. At full capacity, the center will reportedly employ 500 people.

The Jackson distribution center is expected to serve approximately 1,000 stores in the southeast.
