Tractor Supply Garden Centers Reach 500-Store Milestone

by Katie Lee

Brentwood, Tenn. — Tractor Supply Company, the largest rural lifestyle retailer in the United States, has opened its 500th Garden Center, located in Lowell, Ind. The company opened its first Garden Center in Rome, Ga., in summer 2020. To date, Tractor Supply operates Garden Centers in 41 states and plans to open more than 100 Garden Centers by the close of 2024.

Tractor Supply began outfitting selected new stores with Garden Centers and adding them to existing stores as part of its Project Fusion store format initiative in 2020. Each Garden Center provides, on average, 3,000 to 4,000 square feet of additional sales space with a focus on live goods, including fruit trees, herbs, vegetables and seasonal items.

“From beginners to pros, new customers to loyal shoppers, our customers have loved having greater depth and variety in our Lawn and Garden category,” says Seth Estep, chief merchandising officer at Tractor Supply. “We saw interest in gardening spike during the pandemic and it continues to blossom, and we look forward to continuing to support our customers through our Garden Centers as they tend to their lawns, gardens and yards.”

While Garden Centers provide greater depth and variety, all Tractor Supply store locations offer the essentials to start and maintain a garden.

To celebrate 500 Garden Center locations, Tractor Supply is supporting the local community in Lowell, Ind., by supporting a beautification project at Moose Park with plants and supplies. The park has been closed for renovations after being destroyed by fire.
