BRENTWOOD, Tenn. (Sept. 25, 2012)—The new Tell City, Ind., Tractor Supply Company store will hold its grand opening on Saturday, Sept. 29, with specially priced merchandise Sept. 27 – 30, according to Store Manager Andy Pettit. The store officially opened for business Sept. 15.
The Tell City location is Tractor Supply Company’s 42nd store in Indiana and employs 13 team members. The facility has 19,097 square feet, including sales floor and support service space.
Tractor Supply Company is the largest retail farm and ranch supply store chain in the United States and has been operating in Indiana since 1958.
“Tell City is a great location for Tractor Supply Company because it’s surrounded by rural development and there aren’t many stores like ours in the area,” said Pettit. “We have a wide array of products for the people ‘Out Here’. Our talented, knowledgeable team is excited to help our neighbors find what they need and provide the legendary Tractor Supply customer service.”
Pettit joined Tractor Supply in 2011 as an assistant store manager at the Seymour location. Prior to joining Tractor Supply, he spent nearly six years working for Bender Lumber Company. Pettit grew up on a farm in Seymour and enjoys woodworking in his spare time.
As store manager, Pettit oversees all store operations, including receiving, inventory control and merchandising, as well as customer and team member relations.
To celebrate the grand opening of the store, shoppers will receive 10 percent off their first purchase, up to $100, from Sept. 27 – 30, and can enter to win prizes including store gift cards, pet feed, clothing, power tools, a lawn tractor and a chain saw. Free Tractor Supply Company baseball-style hats will also be given away while supplies last.
On Saturday, the grand opening event will feature the local FFA organization selling hot dogs and lemon shake ups, the local Humane Society with hamburgers, a local Horse Rescue group, miniature donkeys, antique tractors and WBKR 92.5 with a live radio remote from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
