Owners of Tri-County Feeds Are Enjoying Expanded New Facility
by KRISTEN ARMSTRONG, Staff Writer
|After nearly 30 years in a
700-square-foot space, Tri-County Feeds, Etc. recently moved to a brand
new, approximately 24,000-square-foot, environmentally conscious
facility, and the owners are ready for customers to enjoy it.
“It was time to reach our full potential as a one-of-a-kind, one-stop shopping destination,” Tri-County Feeds, Etc. president Bill Jackson said in a recent interview.
The new Tri-County Feeds, Etc. facility opened for business on Sept. 10, and will hold a grand opening event on Saturday, Sept. 22.
The local business will continue to offer a broad selection of feeds, hays, beddings and supplements, but also will carry products such as riding apparel, saddles, bridles, boots, helmets, equine- and pet-care products, as well as jewelry gifts, tack room furniture, toys, books and more.
In addition to giving customers more merchandise options, Jackson also made sure the building was environmentally friendly.
The insulation is a recycled fiber cellulose insulation and non-petroleum-based paints and stains, recycled fiber carpeting and bamboo and cork flooring are among some of the environmentally-conscious aspects of the building.
Another feature of the Tri-County Feeds, Etc. facility is a media room that comes equipped with a wall-mounted, eight-foot-wide, high-clarity screen for DVDs and presentations. A training station allows an individual to view educational DVDs privately.
“We are proud to offer the media room to organizations within the community who need a state-of-the-art room to educate or celebrate their members,” Jackson said. “We are in the process of organizing a schedule of ongoing seminars and lectures on nutrition, new product offerings, pet care and training, trunk shows, fashion shows, and are open to customer input.”
Although moving out of their Frost Street facility has been a bittersweet experience, Jackson said he is elated about the opening of the new Tri-County Feeds, Etc.
“It is a uniquely beautiful building that offers the goods and services that our loyal customers have requested, in a setting that is spacious, relaxing and all under one roof,” Jackson said. “We look forward to greeting and assisting new customers.”
