New business on Highway 54, west of Augusta
Tractor Supply, a national chain that sells lawn, garden and animal care products, is expanding with a new store in Augusta.
The company already has stores on East and West Kellogg.
The new store is tentatively set to open Oct. 10 at the southwest corner of Southwest Diamond Road and Highway 54.
Jeff Englert and Nathan Farha of NAI Martens represented a seller who sold three and a quarter acres to a developer who is a building a building for Tractor Supply.
Englert and Farha’s client has another eight acres near there to sell.
Via e-mail, a Tractor Supply representative said the area is especially attractive because of farmers and horse owners who live and work there.
The store, which will be almost 20,000 square feet, will employ 12 to 17 full-time and part-time employees.
