Sparta – As the sun set on White County the Saturday night before Halloween, the security lights flashed to life and customers came and went through the sliding automatic doors of the new Tractor Supply store just outside the city limits of Sparta. The rural lifestyle megastore opened to the public last week and has given the people of White County the option to shop at home instead of heading down 111 to shop in Cookeville.
Shopping local, adding to the county’s economy and simplifying life have been benefits since the store’s opening.
Tractor Supply Company is the largest retailer of its kind in the United States. According tractorsupply.com, the mega store, “has been passionate about serving its unique niche, targeting the needs of recreational farmers, ranchers and all those who enjoy living the rural lifestyle, for more than 80 years.”
The Company operates over 2,000 stores in 49 states, a consumer mobile app and an e-commerce website at TractorSupply.com. In October 2022, Tractor Supply acquired 81 stores from Orscheln Farm and Home that will be rebranded to Tractor Supply by the end of 2023.
