New Tractor Supply Company Store Planned for Coleman

BRENTWOOD, Tenn. (Nov. 30, 2016) – Tractor Supply Company (NASDAQ: TSCO), the largest rural lifestyle retail store chain in the United States, today announced that construction is underway on a new location in Coleman, the Company’s 189th location in Texas.

The Coleman Tractor Supply store will be located at 2303 S. Commercial Ave., and will employ an estimated 15 full- and part-time team members. The store will be approximately 21,607 square feet, including sales floor and support service space. A fenced exterior space will be used for storage and displaying items such as fencing, sprayers and livestock equipment.

“Tractor Supply looks forward to being a member of the Coleman community,” said District Manager Danny Click. “Coleman is a great fit for Tractor Supply due to the horse owners and part-time and hobby farmers in the area. Many of our new customers are pleasantly surprised by our unique mix of product offerings, which in addition to farm products and hardware, also includes pet food and supplies and clothing items for the entire family.”

The contractor for the project, Westmoreland Builders, began construction on Oct. 17. A completion date has been tentatively set for mid-January 2017.
