Tractor Supply Company is expanding into Cave Creek with plans to build a store of more than 21KSF on nearly three acres on the southwest corner of Cave Creek and Olesen roads.
Tractor Supply will be an anchor store in a project that will include three other pads for such businesses as retail, restaurant, bank or auto products and services.
The 3 acres is a county island that is being annexed by Cave Creek and part of the larger 10-acre project.
A soft opening is tentatively scheduled for Oct. 3. Tractor Supply Company sells products for agriculture, home improvement, lawn and garden, clothing and livestock, equine and pet care.
Company spokesman Rob Hoskins said Tractor Supply Company is growth-minded and is always looking for “As a growth-minded company and is always looking for potential new store locations that are a good fit with its target market.
“Concerning the location in Cave Creek, this is especially true in that the area was attractive due to the part-time and hobby farmers, and horse owners in the area,” Hoskins said.
Landscaping will include on-site salvage material as well as indigenous plant species.
The Cave Creek site will employ 12 to 17 full- and part-time people.
