Tractor Supply Company TSCO has reached a blossoming milestone with the grand opening of its 500th Garden Center in Lowell, IN. This marks a surge in gardening popularity and highlights the company’s commitment to rural lifestyles.

Just four years ago, in July 2020, Tractor Supply planted the first seed of its Garden Center initiative in Rome, GA. Since then, the program has blossomed remarkably. The company’s footprint now spans across 41 states, boasting a network of 500 dedicated Garden Centers. This impressive growth doesn’t stop here, Tractor Supply sets its sights even higher, aiming to add over 100 more Garden Centers by the end of 2024.

TSCO’s Project Fusion initiative plays a key role in its growth. The initiative incorporates dedicated Garden Centers into both new and existing stores. Each Garden Center boasts an additional 3,000 to 4,000 square feet of retail space, specifically focused on live goods such as fruit trees, herbs, vegetables and seasonal plants.

Seth Estep, Chief Merchandising Officer at Tractor Supply, highlights the customer demand that has fueled this expansion. Customers have expressed a strong desire for a wider range of lawn and garden products. The jump in gardening interest witnessed during the pandemic continues to blossom and the company is committed to supporting its customers’ green thumbs through its expanded Garden Centers.
