Tractor Supply Company breaks ground
HESPERIA — After the largest retail farm and ranch store in the U.S was expected to open in Victorville last year, the Tennessee-based Tractor Supply Company broke ground on its newest location in Hesperia.
Community leaders, along with city and regional officials, were on hand Thursday morning during a groundbreaking ceremony for the 19,000-square foot retail facility on the southeast corner of Main and Mesa Linda streets, just west of Interstate 15.
Founded in 1938, the store caters to rural communities, and offers a variety of products to support their customers' rural lifestyle. The store carries items such as welders, generators, animal care products, workwear, pet supplies, animal feed, power tools, riding mowers, fencing, lawn and garden products and more.
Hesperia Mayor Eric Schmidt told the audience that the deal to bring the Fortune 500 business to Hesperia first began in 2013 when city officials meet with the developer of TSC at the International Council of Shopping Centers trade show in Las Vegas.
During the groundbreaking event, Developer Brad Sobel told the audience that TSC management gave him the direction to scout out a location in the High Desert for the new store.
“After looking at several locations, Tractor Supply Company said they really wanted to be in Hesperia,” said Sobel, of Sobel Development of Beverly Hills. “Hesperia is where TSC wants to call home.”
Schmidt said the new TSC is expected to generate 100 temporary construction jobs, and up to 15 permanent jobs once the store is open sometime in 2016. He added that the store should generate $4 million in yearly taxable income.
Wally Linn, a representative for Rep. Paul Cook (Apple Valley) told Sobel that the Hesperia location for TSC was ideal because of it's proximity to Interstate 15 and a "High Desert filled with animal owners who love their horses and other small animals."
Victorville's Katie Bramblett told the Daily Press that she has to drive to the TSC in Norco to purchase items that she can’t find locally.
“There are items that are not available at any other stores in the High Desert so I don't have any alternative,” said Bramblett, a livestock and small pet owner. “I'm very excited about the store, they usually have very competitive pricing and a large selection of items.”
Last year, TSC was expected to take over the old Wal-Mart location near Bear Valley Road and Balsam Avenue, the Daily Press reported.
But in early 2014, after its building permit had expired, many believed that the supply store move would not happen. At that time, a TSC spokesman said they had no information regarding another possible location in Victorville.
After a “coming soon” banner on the entrance sign at Bear Valley Plaza Shopping Center announced the soon arrival of TSC, many business owners in the center hoped it would revitalize the area after the Wal-Mart anchor-store relocated to Amargosa Road in Sept. 2012.
Sobel said as a developer of the Hesperia location, the only information that he was given by TSC was to scout out a location in the Victor Valley. Messages to TSC were not returned as of Thursday.
The nearest TSC stores to the Victor Valley are located in Yucca Valley, Norco, Hemet and Murrieta. The company operates over 1,400 retail stores in 49 states and employs more than 21,000 team members.

Please note the store itself is okay but if you ever have to order anything expect the worse experience you could have. Ordered 4 things one of which was just a e-gift card and all including the card and were extremely late. Waited for a compressor 7 extra weeks from delivery date.

Good business. Completed an online order for a product for in store pickup. Staff was very helpful upon arrival. Was looking for another product that I was unable to purchase online and staff provided guidance on how to order this product. Its always nice when they have chick's and ducks for the little ones to look at. My only complaint is that our pig food is usually not on the shelf and when we ask an employee if they have it, they do, and then bring it out to us from the back. Seems like it happens like this often. So only suggestion is to check the floors stock of food/supplies more frequently to make it more convenient for shoppers
