CHARLES TOWN, W.Va. — Tractor Supply Co. held a grand opening April 28 at 1040 Somerset Blvd. in Charles Town.

The event featured antique tractors, animals, pedal car races for children and product demonstrations. Food vendors also were on-site.

The Charles Town location is Tractor Supply Co.’s 22nd store in West Virginia and employs approximately 25 team members. The facility has 19,097 square feet, including sales floor and support service space.

Tractor Supply Co. is the largest retail farm and ranch supply store chain in the United States, and has been operating in West Virginia since 2002.

“Tractor Supply Co. is a great location for Charles Town because the area has such a strong agricultural background and a large amount of livestock,” Manager Gerald Michaels said in a news release. “We have a talented, knowledgeable team to help our neighbors find what they need, from clothing to general maintenance and hardware and livestock items. There is something here for everyone.”

Michaels’ team comes from a broad background, including a 4-H counselor, a barrel racer, a pet therapist, an equestrian trainer, and a person who raises goat and sheep.

Michaels joined Tractor Supply Co. in late 2011 as a manager-in-training at the Hagerstown location. He has more than 20 years of retail experience, most recently working for The Home Depot before joining Tractor Supply Co.

Regular operating hours for the store are 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday to Saturday, and 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday.

Tractor Supply Co. stores offer merchandise for the health, care, growth and containment of horses, livestock and pets; agricultural products; tools and hardware; light truck equipment; work clothing for the entire family; and seasonal products, including lawn and garden power equipment.
