Tractor Supply to move into former Yardbirds site

In 2007, former Yardbirds stores, purchased by Home Depot, opened as a hybrid format in California.

A long vacant home-improvement store in Petaluma, Calif., will soon erect a Tractor Supply sign, according to an article in The Santa Rosa Press Democrat. 

The former Yardbirds, operated by Home Depot after it purchased the Northern California chain of hardware stores, closed in 2009. Several retailers have expressed interest in it, according to news reports, including Lowe’s, who pulled out of the running last month.

Tractor Supply, a farm, ranch and home improvement store based in Brentwood, Tenn., already operates another store in Sonoma County, according to the article. Altogether, the retailer owns more than 1,054 stores in 44 states.

Projected opening for the 40,000-sq.-ft. Petaluma store is Jan. 28.
