Movie Gallery Plans New Distribution Center16 Jul, 2004 By: Holly J. Wagner
Movie Gallery will build a new distribution center in Dothan, Ala. to house and serve some of their 2,300 video stores and to support future growth.
The project will retain 169 jobs and create another 74 jobs in the area.
"We appreciate the tremendous support from Governor Bob Riley, the Dothan Area Chamber of Commerce, the Houston County Commission, the City of Dothan, the Alabama Development Office and the Industrial Development Board of the City of Dothan. The efforts of these entities working together reaffirmed that Alabama is the right place for Movie Gallery's distribution center and is best suited for our needs," said Movie Gallery chairman and CEO Joe Malugen.
Initially the new center at the Westgate Industrial Park will have a 190,000-sq.-ft. footprint on an 18-acre property, leaving plenty of room for expansion.
