    We have a Tractor Supply coming , should be open Nov 2005. It will be only 4 miles from our house. I am so happy and so Lucky and I don't pity the local store that has been price gouging us for years.Location Oak Ridge N.C.

    That's a great place to Christmas shop. I have no trouble at all finding a really nice present there for my wife that I can use even if she never does!

    Well the Tractor Supply Company store I shopped at has moved to a new building across town. :waa: I suppose it is only a half mile further for me to drive, but now through lots of traffic. I've not seen anything about a grand opening and just haven't gone to see the facility and shop yet. The new location will also be a nightmare for the Amish and Mennonite as they will have to cross a lot of traffic lanes to get to it, also quite a distance away from the livestock sale barn now. Most would go to TSC on sale day, which was every Tuesday. Doubt they will now.

    Happy for you, bummer for me here.

    We just discovered the joys of TSC this past summer. They moved into the old WalMart building in Prairie du Chien, and we stopped in on a whim.

    VERY cool! Now it's one of our favorite dates (after Home Depot, Farm and Fleet, and Menards...)

    I recommend picking up their "Blue Book" catalog, then you can really lust after all that they offer! (Oh and you can order stuff too)

    They've been a real life-saver for us in our little town, since they are the only hardware supply store open on Sunday. They expanded and opened a new bigger store about a year ago. The only problem I have with them is they often seem to be out of the exact part I need for an emergency plumbing or electrical repair. But they have plenty of parts for my old Ford 8N.
