Tractor Supply Co. has obtained a building permit for a store at Quincy, the Kanawha County Commission announced.
Construction of the $1.6-million, 20,000-square-foot building will begin in the next few weeks with completion scheduled for late spring, the commission said.
The building will be erected on property leased from Quincy Coal, near the 84 Lumber Co. outlet on the west end of the Quincy Mall, the commission said.
Commission President Kent Carper said, "Quincy Coal is to be commended for their diligence in putting together a lease package that enticed Tractor Supply Co. to build in the eastern part of our county.
"This development will bring 25 to 30 much-needed new jobs to the eastern part of our county," Carper said.Tractor Supply is the largest retail farm and ranch store chain in the United States. The company has 23 stores in West Virginia, including stores at Hurricane, Ripley, Spencer and Weston.
