Tractor Supply Company will be opening their 65th store in New York this summer. Construction has been underway since December with a completion date set for June.
Tractor Supply is a farm and ranch supply retail supply store chain, the largest of its kind in the United States. The first store in New York was built in 1986.
The new Greenwich location will employ 12 to 17 team members, both part-time and full-time. The store will be located at 1175 State Route 29. Greenwich is seen as a great fit for Tractor Supply, as Washington County is home to many hobby and part-time farmers, as well as horse owners.
This will beat driving to Saratoga for the nearest Tractor Supply! What do you think about the retail chain's new location?

Local fundraising efforts are being made to help pay for the funeral of Jesse Smith, a 15-month-old child that passed away last week.
Cassandra Harrington is going to collect bottles and cans through Sunday, return them for deposit refunds, and bring the money to the funeral home that will be handling the service.
I saw some people making bottle/can collections at the Broad St. Hannaford over the weekend for the cause. It's unclear if they will be there this week. Anyone who wishes to help can drop bottles and cans off at Harrington's home at 64 Peggy Ann Road in Queensbury.
The child died from injuries last week that were allegedly inflicted by his father during visitation.
Our hearts go out to the James family in this time of sorrow.
