Tractor Supply Company has opened its 1,800th store by hosting a grand opening celebration at the new store in Berkshire Township (Sunbury), Ohio.
The grand opening for the company’s 1,800th store began with a ribbon cutting by company management, local officials and the Sunbury/Big Walnut Area Chamber of Commerce. Customers then were able to take part in a variety of festivities, including a pet adoption event with the Delaware County Humane Society, antique trailer viewings with the Delaware County Antique Farm Machinery Association and a bake sale with the Big Walnut FFA.
The store is the 93rd Tractor Supply store to open in Ohio. The company said it opened 80 new Tractor Supply stores in 2018 and expects to continue its strategic expansion plans with 80 new store openings in 2019.
“It continues to be an exciting time for Tractor Supply as we celebrate the opening of our 1,800th store. For more than 80 years, Tractor Supply has worked to be the most dependable supplier of basic maintenance products to all those who live the rural lifestyle, and we look forward to serving our new customers in Berkshire Township, Ohio,” said Greg Sandfort, Tractor Supply’s CEO. “This milestone opening not only reaffirms our long-term growth plans but also how our OneTractor strategy of providing customers the convenience of shopping anytime, anywhere and anyway they choose is resonating and paving the way for future growth.”
