Tractor Supply Co., with one store preparing to open and six already operating in the area, is working on its eighth Northeast Florida location.

The city is reviewing a permit application for a Tractor Supply store on 3.6 acres at 8984 Normandy Blvd. at an estimated project cost of $1.8 million.

The site is near Hammond Boulevard and Herlong Road, west of Interstate 295.

Fulcrum Construction Group of Daphne, Alabama, is the contractor. Cyntergy LLC of Tulsa, Oklahoma, is the architect.

Tractor Supply wants to build a 22,732-square-foot store with another almost 17,000 square feet of unenclosed space.

Hix Snedeker Companies, also of Daphne, is shown as the property owner through HSC Jacksonville West LLC.

Tractor Supply Co.’s tagline is “the stuff you need out here.”

The Normandy location is called its West Jacksonville site.

The store soon to open is called its East Jacksonville location.

The city issued a permit July 6 for Tractor Supply Co. to build at 1767 St. Johns Bluff Road S. Hix Snedeker Companies LLC is the property owner.

Fulcrum Construction Group is the contractor for that $1.8 million project on 3.44 acres. It comprises a 22,166-square-foot store and 16,764 square feet of unenclosed space for outdoor storage and display.

The permit calls the development a “prototypical Tractor Supply.”

The site is at northeast St. Johns Bluff Road South and Bahia Drive in the Sandalwood area.

A Tractor Supply spokesperson previously confirmed a new store is planned to open in 2022 in Jacksonville East.

The company has developed several area locations. Its site shows that it operates in Northeast Florida along New Kings Road in Northwest Jacksonville and in Macclenny, Orange Park, Saint Johns, St. Augustine and Yulee.

The company, based in Brentwood, Tennessee, operated 1,967 stores in 49 states as of Sept. 25. It was founded more than 80 years ago.

It calls itself the largest rural lifestyle retailer in the United States and a one-stop shop for recreational farmers, ranchers and others.

It sells products for the home, land, pets and animals.

Tractor Supply announced that new and remodeled stores would make better use of their indoor space and use their outdoor “side lots” as an outside garden, feed and farm shopping center. 

It also wants to expand its buy-online-pickup-in-store capabilities.
