SUMMERVILLE — A farm supply chain soon will plow new ground in the Charleston area.
Tractor Supply Co. plans to build a 22,000-square-foot store on 7.25 acres on Dorchester Road between Shady Lane and Stack’s Nursery.
The new store will be the Tennessee-based company’s fifth location in the Lowcountry. Others are in Awendaw, Moncks Corner, Ravenel and near Nexton in Berkeley County.
Farmer & Associates of Aiken paid $1.19 million for the wooded parcels in Dorchester County, according to buyer’s representative Will Sherrod of the commercial real estate firm NAI Charleston. The land was previously owned by Old Fort Baptist Church and Oakbrook Community Church. They were each paid $595,000 for the property.
The new store will include a garden center and outdoor display area. Completion is targeted by the end of the year, Sherrod said.
The buyer will develop and lease the site to Tractor Supply. About two acres of outparcel space will be set aside for future purchase.
Doug Richardson with Carolina One and Michele Costanzo with eXp Realty represented the sellers.
