Construction is near completion on the new Tractor Supply Co. store in Honesdale, the company’s 66th Pennsylvania location.

Tractor Supply Co. is the largest retail farm and ranch supply store chain in the United States, and has been operating in Pennsylvania since 1965. The store will be located at 240 Willow Ave. and will employ 12 to 17 full- and part-time employees. The store will include a sales floor and support service space. A fenced exterior 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 Honesdale community,” said district manager Linda Palm. “Honesdale is a great fit due to the part-time and hobby farmers and horse owners in the area.”

The contractor for the project, W.R. Newman of Nashville, TN, began construction on October 8, 2012. A completion date has been tentatively set for late April 2013.

Tractor Supply operates more than 1,135 stores in 45 states. The company serves the maintenance needs of those who enjoy rural lifestyles, as well as tradesmen and small businesses. Tractor Supply stores are located in the outlying towns in major metropolitan markets and in rural communities. There is a store located on state Route 52 in Liberty, NY and one in Hamlin, PA.

The company offers a selection of merchandise for the health, care, growth and containment of horses, livestock and pets, including select Purina and Nutrena brand feeds, a broad selection of agricultural products, and tools and hardware selected for customers’ needs. In addition, the company sells light truck equipment; work clothing for a family; and an extensive line of several products, including lawn and garden power equipment.
