Tractor Supply set to open late AugustPublished 11:11am Monday, June 18, 2012
Construction is under way on a new Tractor Supply Company store in Alexander City, the company’s 37th Alabama location.
Tractor Supply Company is the largest retail farm and ranch supply store chain in the United States and has been operating in Alabama since 1997, according to the company’s website.
The Alexander City Tractor Supply store will be located in a former furniture store space at 1556 Mill Square, and it will employ 12 to 17 full- and part-time team members. The store will include sales floor and support service space. A fenced exterior space will be used for storage and displaying items such as fencing, sprayers and livestock equipment.
“Tractor Supply looks forward to being a member of the Alexander City business community,” said district manager Connie Holder. “Alexander City is a great fit due to the part-time and hobby farmers and horse owners in the area.”
The contractor for the project, Marco Contractors, Inc. of Warrendale, Pa., began construction on June 4. A completion date has been tentatively set for late August.
Tractor Supply Company operates more than 1,100 stores in 44 states. Tractor Supply Company stores are focused on supplying the lifestyle needs of recreational farmers and ranchers. The company also serves the maintenance needs of those who enjoy the rural lifestyle, as well as tradesmen and small businesses.
Tractor Supply Company stores are located in the outlying towns in major metropolitan markets and in rural communities. The company offers a selection of merchandise for the health, care, growth and containment of horses, livestock and pets including select Purina and Nutrena brand feeds; a broad selection of agricultural products; and tools and hardware selected for their customers’ needs.
In addition, the company sells light truck equipment, work clothing for the entire family and an extensive line of seasonal products, including lawn and garden power equipment products.
