Connecticut’s 17th Tractor Supply Co. farm-and-ranch supplies store has opened in Wallingford.
The 20,000-square-foot store opened recently at 800 N. Colony Road/Route 5. The store site also includes 15,000 square feet of outdoor storage and sales space, according to Wethersfield retail landlord-broker New England Retail Properties Inc.
