AHOSKIE – Construction is underway on a new Tractor Supply Company store in Ahoskie, the company’s 63rd North Carolina location.

Tractor Supply – based in Brentwood, TN – is the largest retail farm and ranch supply store chain in the United States and has been operating in North Carolina since 1994.

The Ahoskie Tractor Supply store will be located in the former Wal-Mart space at 1532 Memorial Drive East, Suite A, and 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 Ahoskie community,” said District Manager Chris Redmon. “Ahoskie is a great fit due to the part-time and hobby farmers, and horse owners in the area. And many of our new customers are surprised to find we also offer pet supplies and clothing items for the entire family.”

The contractor for the project, W. R. Newman of Nashville, TN, began construction on March 3. A completion date has been tentatively set for mid-May.

Tractor Supply Company, listed on the NASDAQ Stock Exchange as TSCO, operates more than 1,245 stores in 48 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 comprehensive 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 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.
