Rodriguez said more than 200 jobs would be created once the anticipated deal is made official.  He said the company's name and other details would be disclosed once the deal is made official.


Dollar General has hired close to 200 people at the warehouse.  Corsicana Mattress recently announced plans to operate an assembly plant at Pinola and create as many as 250 jobs in the next three to four years.
