The Tractor Supply Company has selected a Dundas location for a new store. The 600 Schilling Drive address has construction starting now with plans to have the roof on before snowfall and opening intended to be in time for spring 2024.
TSC stared as a mail order business in 1938 providing farmers with quality tractor parts at fair prices. The business was operated from the founder’s home in Chicago before opening the first store in Minot, North Dakota in 1940. This location was selected because it was halfway between customers in Saskatchewan, Canada and Texas. By 2011 there were 1,000 Tractor Supply stores and the number has swelled to 2,000 ten years later. The average TSC store covers 20,000 sq. ft.
Tractor Supply stores provide a one-stop shop for the community, serving farmers, livestock and pet owners, ranchers, part-time and hobby farmers, gardeners, homeowners and others. Tractor Supply customers can access a wide range of products including pet supplies, animal feed, propane tanks, fencing, tools and outdoor power equipment, apparel, gifts and decor and more. The stores carry top brands, such as Purina, Carhartt, Blue Buffalo, Makita and Hobart, as well as products exclusive to Tractor Supply. As part of the company’s ongoing evolution to continually meet customer needs, select Tractor Supply stores around the country feature a garden center that includes live goods and seasonal items for everyone from novice gardeners to professional landscapers.
Tractor Supply actively participates in their communities by supporting local animal shelters, area 4-H clubs, FFA chapters and more.
TSC is known for staffing helpful and knowledgeable employees at their stores and will be hiring in the area. Wages start at $28,000.
