GROVE CITY —
Construction is under way on a new Tractor Supply Co. store in Grove City.
Tractor Supply is the largest retail farm and ranch supply store chain in the U.S. and has been operating in Pennsylvania since 1965. The store will be on West Main Street at the former Trader Horn store, and will employ 12 to 17 full- and part-time. The store will include sales floor and support service space and a fenced space outdoors.
District Manager Tom Battellino said, “Grove City 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, Simmons Construction of New Tazewell, Tenn., began construction April 7. A completion date has been tentatively set for late June.
Tractor Supply operates more than 1,245 stores in 48 states.
