HART – A Tractor Supply store will open in the former Shopko building on Comfort Drive this spring, bringing approximately 15 jobs to the area.

“At this time, I can confirm that a Tractor Supply store will be opening in Hart spring 2020,” stated Niki Giacchina, project manager for a communications agency representing Tractor Supply. “The store will provide about 15 new jobs to the area, with at least half of those being full-time positions. Also, this is one of more than 70 stores that will open in 2020.”

Deputy City Clerk for the City of Hart Cheri Eisenlohr confirmed that the store will locate in the former Shopko building at 2278 N. Comfort Dr.

“With over 1,800 stores, Tractor Supply is always seeking the right opportunity to grow the retailer’s footprint nationwide,” said Giacchina. “The brand is passionate about serving its unique niche and has identified an opportunity to offer exceptional service and one-of-a-kind products to those living the ‘Out Here’ lifestyle in the Hart community.”

Tractor Supply sells farm supplies, pet and animal feed, sporting goods, clothing, hardware, lawn and garden equipment and other merchandise.

Tractor Supply Company is “the largest rural lifestyle retailer in the United States,” its web site states. The company has provided “a one-stop shop for recreational farmers, ranchers and all those who enjoy living the rural lifestyle, for more than 80 years. Tractor Supply offers an extensive mix of products necessary to care for home, land, pets and animals with a focus on product localization, exclusive brands and legendary customer service.”

The Shopko Hometown store, which closed last May, was among 139 stores that the company announced were closing under Chapter 11 bankruptcy.
