Tractor Supply Company opens in Herkimer

HERKIMER, N.Y. (WKTV) - The Herkimer County Chamber of Commerce officially welcomed a brand new member of the business community on Saturday.

The Tractor Supply Company held a grand opening at its new location on Mohawk Street in Herkimer.

The company's regional general manager was on-hand to welcome customers. Tractor Supply CNY District Manager Lynn Leiterman said, "Tractor Supply Company started in 1938 as a mail order tractor parts operation and as they grew into the company we are today, they just didn't change the name because they had that attraction to the name. So even though we don't sell tractors, we sell a lot of things for the do-it-yourselfer and the hobby farmer."

Tractor Supply is a growing company. Recently, it has been opening an average of 80 stores a year.
