Construction is underway on a Tractor Supply Co. store at 246 Florida Ave. Southeast in Denham Springs, the company’s 22nd Louisiana location.

Tractor Supply, a retail farm and ranch supply store chain, has been operating in Louisiana since 2007.

The Denham Springs store will employ 12 to 17 full- and part-time workers. The store will include sales floor and support service space. A fenced exterior space will be used for storage and displaying items such as fencing, sprayers and livestock equipment.

“Denham Springs is a great fit due to the part-time and hobby farmers, and horse owners in the area,” said District Manager Tim Seilhan.

The contractor is Rogers & Willard of Mobile, Ala. Completion is expected in mid-November.

Tractor Supply Co. operates more than 1,223 stores in 46 states.
