Construction is under way on a new Tractor Supply Company store in Homosassa, the company’s 48th Florida location. 

Tractor Supply Company is the largest retail farm and ranch supply store chain in the United States and has been operating in Florida since 2000, according to the announcement. 

The Homosassa Tractor Supply store will be at 3826 South Suncoast Blvd., and 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.

“Tractor Supply looks forward to being a member of the Homosassa community,” said District Manager Steve Halliday. “Homosassa is a great fit due to the part-time and hobby farmers and horse owners in the area.”

The contractor for the project, Buffalo Construction Inc. of Louisville, Ky., began construction on April 22. A completion date has been tentatively set for late June.
