Retailer to provide one-stop shop to serve rural lifestyle
Tractor Supply Company has begun construction in Meraux. Construction on the store, located at 2505 Archbishop Hannan Blvd., began earlier this month with a goal of opening in late-Fall.
Tractor Supply will serve as a one-stop shop for the Meraux community’s farmers, livestock and pet owners, ranchers, part-time and hobby farmers, gardeners, homeowners, tradesmen and others.
The Meraux Tractor Supply plans to hire 12-15 employees with firsthand knowledge and expertise in caring for pets, livestock and land.
“We’re not just building a store, we’re building a team that understands the needs of the Meraux community,” said District Manager Pete Perez. “At Tractor Supply, we carry products that support the lifestyle our customers lead, the land they own and the animals in their care, so whether you are someone who raises horses and pets, runs a hobby farm or just enjoys the rural lifestyle, we’ll be there to make sure you have all the tools you need.”
At the store, customers will be able to shop a wide selection of products at a great value 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 Meraux 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, 4-H and FFA, county fairs and livestock shows.
Fulcrum Construction Group will construct the 19,097-square-foot retail space that includes a sales floor, external support service area and pet wash station.
The store opening, which is expected to occur in November, will kick off with a four-day Grand Opening celebration, during which customers can sign up for Tractor Supply’s new Neighbor’s Club loyalty program. By registering, members will receive member-only offers, birthday offers, personal purchase summaries and receipt-free returns.
