Tractor Supply Co. opens its newest location in Meraux, Louisiana on November 4, 2017. Located at 2505 Hannan Blvd., the store is roughly 19,000 square feet and employs fourteen St. Bernard Parish residents.
Tractor Supply Co. stores are frequently located in towns outlying major metropolitan markets. Tractor Supply Co. serves a diverse base of customers including part-time and hobby gardeners, homeowners, contractors, horse owners, hunters, farmers, and tradesmen.
The St. Bernard Economic Development Foundation (SBEDF) assisted in the site selection process for the new store and recently visited to speak with the store manager, Jen Euler about what customers can expect at the Meraux Location.
“Tractor Supply Co. carries a little bit of a lot of things,” explained Euler. “The largest percentage of our sales are from our pet care products, but we offer a variety of items that many customers would have to travel to Covington or Mississippi to find.”
The rural lifestyle retail store offers an array of products including clothing and footwear, pet supplies, trailers and accessories, lawn and garden supplies, fencing, tools, welding supplies, tires and automobile accessories, and more.
A unique feature of the Meraux location will be the in-store pet washing an amenity only found in new Tractor Supply Co. locations. “Customers will be able to bring their pet and pay a $9.99 fee to access our professional grooming station,” stated Euler. “This new feature gives our customers an affordable alternative to paying for grooming services at Petsmart or traditional groomers.”
Tractor Supply Co. plans to hold a grand opening celebration on Saturday, November 11, 2017. Euler believes that the store will have a positive impact on the residents of Meraux and customers throughout Greater New Orleans. “I’m excited to bring something new to the community. Residents have not stopped dropping by to see what’s going on and ask when they will be able to shop.”
SBEDF Executive Director, Andrew Jacques expressed the significance of Tractor Supply Co. decision in choosing the new location. “Tractor Supply Co. represents the continuation of a recent trend of national brands locating in St. Bernard Parish. This is a huge win for the St. Bernard Parish and a sign of our upward trajectory.”
