Tractor Supply CEO Greg Sandfort is one of six new executives on the National Retail Federation board of directors.

In addition to Sandfort, the group includes Walmart CEO Bill Simon, Beall’s CEO Steve Knopik, J.C. Penney CEO Myron Ullman, SAP senior VP Lori Mitchell-Kell, and Utah Retail Merchants Association president Dave Davis. 

The retailers were elected to the board Sunday, the opening day of NRF’s 103rd Annual Convention and EXPO. They will serve three-year terms.

“These executives are among the top thought leaders in the world of retail and will only strengthen an already diverse and well-respected board,” said NRF president and CEO Matthew Shay. “Their knowledge and experience will be invaluable as we address the many issues facing retailers at a time when our industry is rapidly changing."

Rent-A-Center opened its newest location in Saginaw, Texas, located at 522 S. Saginaw Blvd.

Based in Plano, Texas, Rent-A-Center operates 275 locations in the state of Texas. The chain has more than 3,000 stores in the United States, Puerto Rico, Canada and Mexico.

As part of its opening ceremony, the store contributed $1,000 to Community Link Mission during today’s grand-opening ceremony.

Community Link Mission is a Saginaw-based food bank in northwest Tarrant County. The organization serves eight zip codes and provides resources to help improve the financial circumstances of its neighbors in need. Karen Fuller, executive director for Community Link Mission, expressed her appreciation for Rent-A-Center’s donation.

“We are so grateful to have been selected for this donation,” said Fuller. “We are moving into a new building within the next few weeks, and this timing could not have been better.”
