Tractor Supply Company Hits Store Milestone

Tractor Supply Company announced the opening of its 500th garden center location in Lowell, Indiana. The company opened its first garden center in Rome, Georgia, in July 2020. To date, Tractor Supply operates garden centers in 41 states and plans to open more than 100 by the end of 2024.

Tractor Supply began outfitting selected new stores with garden centers and adding them to existing stores as part of its Project Fusion store format initiative in 2020. Each garden center provides 3,000 to 4,000 square feet of additional sales space with a focus on live goods, including fruit trees, herbs, vegetables and seasonal items.

“From beginners to pros, new customers to loyal shoppers, our customers have loved having greater depth and variety in our lawn and garden category,” says Seth Estep, chief merchandising officer of Tractor Supply. “We saw interest in gardening spike during the pandemic and it continues to blossom, and we look forward to continuing to support our customers through our garden centers as they tend to their lawns, gardens and yards.”
