Tractor Supply Company, the largest rural lifestyle retailer in the United States, announced it has surpassed 2,000 stores and plans to continue its ongoing expansion. The company is set to open 75-80 new stores in 2022, including relocating a store this month in Minot, N.D., home of the original Tractor Supply location.
In 2011, after 72 years in business, Tractor Supply celebrated the opening of its 1,000th store. It added another thousand just 10 years later and recently celebrated the grand opening of the 2,000th location in White House, Tenn.
“Beginning with our first store in Minot, Tractor Supply Company established a commitment to meeting and exceeding the needs of our customers, and we have upheld that commitment for more than 80 years,” said Hal Lawton, Tractor Supply’s president & CEO. “By never losing sight of our purpose, we have grown far beyond what Mr. Schmidt could have ever imagined. While we are proud of our history and all that we have accomplished, we are even more excited about the future and the many ways we can continue to support our neighbors who share our passion for Life Out Here.”
