Tractor Supply opens doors to public


The Tractor Supply Company at 300 E. Grand Ave. is open for business after its ribbon cutting ceremony yesterday.

Store Manager Larry Travis said the company opened more than 100 stores in 2013 and hopes to do the same this year.

"We've been trying to get to Chickasha, the response from the public has been outstanding," Travis said. "We're excited to service the needs of our rural customer base."

Travis said people came to the store before it opened and said they were glad the store was coming to the community.

LaForge Properties owner Steve LaForge, who sold the land to the Tractor Supply Company, said the company will be beneficial for the community and he hopes it's successful.

"I want more retail growth like this [in Chickasha]," LaForge said. 

Tina Buffington attended the ribbon cutting and said she is happy the company came to Chickasha because she's always shopped at Tractor Supply Company for supplies for her chickens.

"Where I'm from, [13 miles from Chickasha] we don't have an Atwood's," Buffington said. 

Tina's husband, Bob, said they used to have to drive to Duncan to purchase supplies.

Travis said Tractor Supply Company will have a grand opening celebration starting at 8 a.m. March 15 where they will give away a log splitter and gift cards ranging from $250 to $300.
