Tractor Supply — the largest farm and ranch store chain in the U.S. — plans to close its Braselton distribution center, resulting in the loss of 170 area jobs.
The Tennessee-based company announced Monday that it has outgrown its leased facility on Ga. Hwy. 124 in Barrow County and plans to relocate its operations to Macon.
There, the company plans to build a 650,000-square-foot facility and bring 200 new jobs to Bibb County, according to The Telegraph of Macon. Tractor Supply plans to open its new distribution center by fall 2013 after investing an estimated $50 million in the project.
Tractor Supply will close its Braselton distribution center in December 2013, as the company is relocating its operations to Macon. The company’s local facility is located on Ga. Hwy. 124 in Barrow County.
