  • MACEDON — Construction on the new Tractor Supply Company store has begun, with a tentative March opening set.
    The company’s 70th New York location, the farm and ranch supply retail giant will be opening its doors at the the former Spinners roller rink on Route 31. Developer Canal Properties I, LLC is purchasing the vacant Spinners building and land at 280 Route 31 in Macedon and will lease half the property to Tractor Supply. The developer is looking to lease the other half of the property to another business.
    In August, the developer sought a change of use from a roller rink to retail to include a fenced-in outdoor display area, new canopy entrance, modifications to the loading dock area, new HVAC units, upgrades to the sprinkler system, a pavement overlay on the parking lot and landscaping improvements, as well as interior renovations including new bathrooms, all of which was approved the town Planning Board.
    The Macedon Tractor Supply 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.
    The new Tractor Supply Company store will be 30,000 square feet and will be one of the company’s larger stores, in comparison to its Ontario, Newark, Geneva and Farmington locations.
    “Tractor Supply looks forward to being a member of the Macedon community,” said District Manager Lynn Leiterman. “Macedon is a great fit due to the part-time and hobby farmers and horse owners in the area. And many of our new customers are surprised to find we also offer pet supplies and clothing items for the entire family.”
    The store offers a variety of outdoor items including agricultural equipment, clothing and footwear, fencing, heaters, horse, livestock and pet needs, hunting gear, lawn and garden supplies, tools, safes and welding supplies, and much more.
    The contractor for the project, Buffalo Construction of Louisville, Ky., began construction on Dec. 9, and a completion date has been tentatively set for early March.
