Tractor Supply Co. has reached a milestone with its Garden Center format.

The rural lifestyle retailer has opened its 500th Garden Center in Lowell, Ind., marking major progress since the first opened in July 2020. Tractor Supply began outfitting selected new stores with Garden Centers and adding them to existing stores as part of its Project Fusion store format initiative, which launched four years ago.

Each Garden Center provides 3,000 - 4,000 sq. ft. of additional sales space on average with a focus on live goods, including fruit trees, herbs, vegetables and seasonal items. Garden Centers also feature products from national brands such as Scotts, Miracle-Gro and Bonnie Vegetables, as well as options for outdoor living, grilling, seasonal décor and more.

To date, Tractor Supply operates Garden Centers in 41 states and plans to open more than 100 Garden Centers by the close of 2024.

“From beginners to pros, new customers to loyal shoppers, our customers have loved having greater depth and variety in our Lawn and Garden category,” said Seth Estep, chief merchandising officer at Tractor Supply. “We saw interest in gardening spike during the pandemic and it continues to blossom, and we look forward to continuing to support our customers through our Garden Centers as they tend to their lawns, gardens and yards.”

To celebrate 500 Garden Center locations, Tractor Supply is hosting a nationwide Garden Giveaway Sweepstakes. One winner will receive a prize pack of Garden Center favorites, valued at more than $5,000. Prizes include a Toro zero-turn mower, planters, hand tools, a pressure washer, a $500 gift card and more.

As of March 30, 2024, Tractor Supply operated 2,233 stores in 49 states. In its most recent quarter, the company’s net income rose 8.2% to $198.2 million from $183.1 million in the year-ago quarter, and net sales rose 2.9% to a record $3.39 billion.
