UPDATED: New tenant proposed in former grocery store space

FERNDALE, Wash. โ€” A commercial demolition permit was recently approved by the City of Ferndale for modifying the space adjacent to the Ferndale Grocery Outlet at 1750 LaBounty Drive, Suite 103, that has sat vacant since Cost Cutter grocery store closed its doors in 2014.

Permit applications on file at the city indicate Tractor Supply Company (NASDAQ: TSCO), based in Brentwood, Tennessee, is the proposed new tenant in the space. A commercial tenant improvement permit application has the total cost of the 23,000-square-foot project to be about $500,000.

According to the Tractor Supply Company website, “Tractor Supply Company (also referred to as TSC) owns and operates over 1,700 stores in 49 states.” Other locations in western Washington include Lynden, Mount Vernon, Arlington and Oak Harbor. Products offered include “clothing, equine and pet supplies, tractor/trailer parts and accessories, lawn and garden supplies, sprinkler/irrigation parts, power tools, fencing, welding and pump supplies, riding mowers.” But not tractors.

According to a site plan submitted to the city, there will be an outdoor display area in a currently unused space behind an adjacent building occupied by Coconut Kenny’s restaurant and other tenants.

We plant two fields of cucumbers so we have about a 3-4 week period of being able to supply cucumbers. We pick what is ready in the morning and then the calling starts. We start at the top of the list. If people arenโ€™t ready, we move on to the next person on the list. โฃ
โฃ
We highly suggest that you be as ready as possible when we call you. Also, most people donโ€™t have a walk in cooler at their home to keep their cucumbers, so itโ€™s pretty important to not wait too long after getting them to make your pickles. โฃ
โฃ
If we have extra boxes of cucumbers that no one on our list is ready for, we will advertise on social media for anyone to come buy them. Even with a list of 500+ people, we still have people not ready. Calling so many people is labor intensive and itโ€™s very helpful when people are ready. Please be ready! โ˜บ๏ธโฃ

We will have fresh dill and garlic available to buy in our store also at an extra cost. โฃ

Company officials said they are planning on a fall 2019 store opening that will add about 15 new jobs to the Ferndale area, with at least half of those being full-time positions. They are opening more than 80 stores in 2019.

    Why are we triplicating a current business model- Portal Way Farm and Garden and WFC – plus a hardware store . We seem to encourage this practice – how many pharmaceutical outlets do we now have ? We shot down Costco – for this -? Not even home town business ?

      Agreed…why cripple long standing local business like Portal way Farm and Garden or WFC (about 500 feet away) for a big business out of Tennesee? Seems counter productive to me. Sad.

    This is good news for Ferndale. It’s great to see more investment, more employment and more opportunity for those willing to work hard.

    Economic opportunity helps us all PULL OUR OWN WEIGHT and COEXIST with others.

    Ryan and Susan are both right. We need more businesses, but we don’t need more of the same! I was bummed when I heard the newest restaurant was yet another Mexican food purveyor, now this. I will check out the restaurant and I will probably shop at TSC from time to time, but some variety would be awful nice. ๐Ÿ˜
