Tractor Supply Company announced Wednesday plans to build a 900,000-SF distribution center in Maumelle. The $100 million facility is expected to create more than 450 full-time jobs and service about 250 Tractor Supply stores at full capacity. Construction is scheduled to begin mid-2022, with an anticipated completion in late 2023.
“Tractor Supply is excited to begin work on our tenth distribution center, and we look forward to a long and mutually beneficial relationship with the Maumelle community,” said Tractor Supply President and CEO, Hal Lawton. “In support of our Life Out Here Strategy, this new distribution center is a significant investment to help serve our growing store base and online sales as we build a strong, relevant company for the future. We appreciate the support of the many state and local officials who have worked extensively to establish a business climate in which everyone can prosper.”
Tractor Supply Company is the largest rural lifestyle retailer in the United States. As of Dec. 2021, TSC operated 2,003 Tractor Supply stores in 49 states in addition to its consumer mobile app and e-commerce website. Tractor Supply Company also owns and operates Petsense, a small-box pet specialty supply retailer with one retail store location already in the Maumelle area.
“I am thrilled that Tractor Supply is investing in Maumelle with their newest distribution center, said Maumelle Mayor, Caleb Norris. “It is clear that Tractor Supply’s values complement Maumelle’s vision quite well and their presence will be a great addition to our community. The new facility located in our thriving industrial park will provide 450 new jobs and strengthen our already growing local economy. This huge win for Maumelle follows years of work and demonstrates that Maumelle is a thriving city.”
Several other major companies operate distribution centers in Maumelle, including Ace Hardware and Dillard’s. Upon completion of the Maumelle facility in late 2023, Tractor Supply will operate ten distribution centers in total across the nation.
