Construction is underway on a new Tractor Supply Company store in Delta, the company's seventh Colorado location.
Tractor Supply Company is the largest retail farm and ranch supply store chain in the United States and has been operating in Colorado since 2012.
The Delta Tractor Supply store will be located at 145 Gunnison River Drive, and will employ 12 to 17 full- and part-time team members. The store will include sales floor and support service space. A fenced exterior space will be used for storage and displaying items such as fencing, sprayers and livestock equipment.
"Tractor Supply looks forward to being a member of the Delta community," said district manager Corey Hollis. "Delta is a great fit due to the part-time and hobby farmers, and horse owners in the area."
The contractor for the project, SJH Development, began construction on June 10. A completion date has been tentatively set for late October.
