A new Tractor Supply store is planned at 1600 Auburn Road in Turner, once permits are secured with state and local officials. The matter has yet to go before the Planning Board.
The description provided by developer Primax Properties of Charlotte, North Carolina, indicates the store would be 21,930 square feet, with a 19,870 square foot fenced, outdoor display area with a 3,672 square foot garden center, which is slightly bigger than the typical Tractor Supply Store, according to its latest annual report.
An official with Primax Properties said they would like to be open by the end of the year. A public comment period is open during the application process and anyone can request a public hearing in writing. Requests must be made within 20 days after the application has been accepted by the Maine Department of Environmental Protection.
Tractor Supply Co. says it is the largest operator of rural lifestyle retail stores in America, with more than 2,000 stores in 49 states. There are 20 stores in Maine.
