A milestone for Tractor Supply
Tractor Supply Company has reached a major milestone and opened its 1,900th location.
Located in Oakhurst, Calif., Tractor Supply is commemorating the opening by donating $50,000 to support organizations battling wildfires in the region.
“With the opening of the 1,900th Tractor Supply store, we’re excited to continue to expand our footprint,” said John Ordus, Tractor Supply EVP and chief stores officer. “I would like to thank our 38,000 Tractor Supply Team Members for their commitment to serving our customers and living our mission and values each day.”
The Oakhurst store will feature giveaways and "hot deals" from Sept. 17, through Sept. 20, the farm and ranch lifestyle retailer said. The store’s convenience offerings include contactless curbside buy online, pickup at store, same-day delivery from the store, and a pet wash station.
This is the 72nd Tractor Supply store in California.
The store is stocked with a wide range of products including workwear and boots, equine and pet supplies, tractor and trailer parts and accessories, lawn and garden supplies, sprinkler and irrigation parts, power tools, fencing, welding and pump supplies, and riding mowers, among other products.
Ordus noted that “while the COVID-19 pandemic has made 2020 a year like no one could have expected, people’s love for taking care of their home, land, pets, and animals – all part of what we call the Out Here lifestyle – has not changed.”
“If anything, this year has provided us with a greater opportunity to meet customers’ essential needs across all shopping channels,” Ordus said. “As we have for more than 80 years, we look forward to continuing to evolve and grow.”
Tractor Supply has committed $25,000 to the following organizations who are aiding firefighting and recovery efforts in Madera County (Oakhurst) and surrounding areas that have been affected by the Creek Fire:
- Madera County Sheriff’s Foundation, $15,000, to set up temporary housing for firefighters while working the fires;
- Coarsegold Stampede, $5,000, to take in large animals during the evacuation; and
- Central California Animal Disaster Team, $5,000, to take in small animals during the evacuation.
Tractor Supply is donating an additional $25,000 to support West Coast wildfire disaster relief efforts with a focus on emergency assistance and recovery support for firefighters and animals.
“Our thoughts are with everyone on the West Coast who has been affected by the wildfires, and we offer our support to the brave men and women who are fighting the fire and caring for those displaced by the destruction,” Ordus added.
Tractor Supply is based in Brentwood, Tenn. and operates locations in 49 states along with 180 Petsense stores in 25 states.
