Tractor Supply Co. Store To Hold Grand Opening

The new Montrose Tractor Supply Company store will hold its grand opening on Saturday, March 28, according to Store Manager John Hamel.

The Montrose location is Tractor Supply Company’s 53rd store in Pennsylvania. It employs 14 team members. The facility has 19,097 square feet, including sales floor and support service space.

Tractor Supply Company is the largest retail farm and ranch supply store chain in the United States.

“Montrose is a great location for us, because it’s a strong farming community,” said Hamel. “We get customers from surrounding areas, such as Wilkes-Barre as well, and our gardening products are especially popular.”

Grand opening festivities for the new store, located at 17856 State Route 706, will begin at 10 a.m. Activities include a horse training demo from 10 a.m. – 3 p.m., drawings for giveaways, and specially priced merchandise.

Tractor Supply Company, listed on the NASDAQ Stock Exchange as TSCO, operates more than 830 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 comprehensive selection of merchandise for the health, care, growth and containment of horses, livestock and pets; 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.
