Tractor Supply Company has begun construction on a retail store at 190 Emerald Parkway and have set their sights on a 2018 summer opening.
Tractor Supply will be located in the old building of Ray’s Food Place, which has been vacant since 2014. The store intends to serve as a one-stop shop for the Creswell community’s farmers, livestock and pet owners, ranchers, part-time and hobby farmers, gardeners, homeowners, tradesmen and others.
”We’re not just building a store, we’re building a team that understands the needs of the Creswell community,” said District Manager Mike Hardesty. ”We know this community values living life ‘Out Here’ just like us – with a focus on caring for their home, land, pets and animals. With the addition of our new location, we’re able to ensure the Creswell community is fully equipped with the products they need.”
The Creswell Tractor Supply plans to hire 12 to 15 employees with firsthand knowledge and expertise in caring for pets, livestock and land.
At the store, customers will be able to shop a wide selection of products including workwear and boots, tractor and trailer parts and accessories, lawn and garden supplies, sprinkler and irrigation parts, power tools, fencing, welding and pump supplies, riding mowers and more.
The Creswell store will also carry a wide variety of food and supplies for pets, equine and livestock, as well as a pet wash station where customers will have access to professional-grade wash bays, grooming tables and tools.
The Tractor Supply team will also seek to support pet adoption initiatives, area 4-H clubs and FFA chapters, county fairs and livestock shows.
The summer store opening will kick off with a four-day grand opening celebration, during which customers can sign up for Tractor Supply’s loyalty program, called the ”Neighbor’s Club.” By registering, customers will receive member-only offers, birthday offers, personal purchase summaries and receipt-free returns.
W.R. Newman & Associates will construct the 29,004-square-foot retail space. The store plans include a sales floor, external support service area and a pet wash station.
