Tractor Supply, Inc., a Nashville, Tenn.-based farm supply and hardware chain, has completed purchase of a site in Tucumcari to build a 19,097 square-foot store, according to the Quay County Clerk’s office.
The store is tentatively set to open for business on Sept.16, according to Rob Hoskins, a Tractor Supply spokesman.
Tractor Supply bought the store site in the East 1300 block of Route 66 Boulevard from Mark and Debra Whittington, but the purchase price was not disclosed, according to the Quay County Clerk’s office. The sale was completed on April 1.
Hoskins said the chain picked a Tucumcari location “due to the part-time and hobby farmers, and horse owners in the area.”
TSC carries lawn and garden and animal care products that serve the needs of these customers, Hoskins said.
The Tucumcari Tractor Supply store will provide between 12-17 full and part-time jobs, Hoskins said.
