TSC opens in Sardinia

SARDINIA — Local residents looking for farming supplies, equipment, or a new Carhartt jacket won’t have to leave the county anymore.

The Brown County Chamber of Commerce and Tractor Supply Co. held a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Friday, Aug. 28, to celebrate the opening of a new Tractor Supply Co. store in Sardinia. The store is located on the site of the former Martin’s Supervalu grocery store at 7110 Bachman Road.

“It’s more jobs for the county, particularly in Sardinia here, and this is one of the nicer TSC stores I’ve been in,” Brown County Commissioner Barry Woodruff said. “They did a remarkable job transforming the grocery store and whoever owns the building was able to keep the Sardinia Pharmacy and the People’s Bank. They were able to keep all the businesses who were already here plus add one here.”

The store is the first TSC in Brown County, and gives most Brown County residents a closer option to shop at if they are planning on going to TSC. There are other nearby TSC locations in Hillsboro, Batavia, West Union, and in Maysville, Ky. There are currently 10 employees at the Sardinia locations.

“We have everything for your basic farm needs, from horse feed to pet feed,” said manager Dane Austin, who is a Hillsboro native. “We’ve got all your major brands of dog food, Blue Buffalo, Merrick, we’ve got all the Purina products, and we have all your clothing like jeans and shirts.”

With the fall season underway, TSC is already starting to stock up on new stoves and Carhartt jackets, and there are sales coming up in the next few weeks.

“We have our Labor Day sale coming up and we’ll have a few deals for the Brown County Fair,” Austin said.

According to a report from the Cincinnati Business Courier, Bunnell Hill Development Co. Inc., a real estate company based in Lebanon, Ohio, purchased the shopping complex for $2.2 million. Bunnell Hill Development Co. then reached out to one of their national clients, TSC, who agreed to lease the property along with People’s Bank and Sardinia Pharmacy.

According to records on the Brown County Auditor’s website, the parcel of land upon which the shopping complex sits was purchased by Bunnell Hill Development Co. on March 3 for $950,000. That’s a whopping 850 percent increase from what Daniel and Linda Martin paid on New Year’s Eve in 2012 to purchase the 3.03 acre plot of land. The Martins paid just $100,000, according to the Brown County Auditor.

Woodruff hopes that TSC can act as an anchor for economic and business growth in the Sardinia area.

“I hope the folks in the area support it,” Woodruff said. “I hope this kind of starts the fire similar to (the new Mt. Orab Automall).”
