On The Greaux – The building boom continues in Lafayette

Tractor Supply Co. Expands in Acadiana

Tractor Supply Co.is set to open the chain’s second Acadiana location in Breaux Bridge.  There is a sign at the former Wal-Mart building on Rees St. near Mills Ave. that alerts to the construction.  The chain’s first Acadiana store is in Abbeville near the new Lowe’s on Hwy. 14. 

 If you’re not familiar with Tractor Supply, they operate stores that are smaller than a Lowe’s or Home Depot, and one of their marketing folks once told me they sell everything that someone who lived on their own land and had animals would need.  This includes a lot of horse gear and lawn care items.  The Tennessee company operates more than 800 stores in the US.

About a year ago, Wal-Mart moved down Rees Street to a site bordering I-10.  Another sign at the old Wal-Mart site from a local real estate company makes me think they’re also building a shopping center on the property.
