All the clues are here:
- Exterior Renderings and Elevations for a “Proposed New Location” were on the May 4, 2016, agenda for the Apopka Development Review Committee.
- Apopka-based Hanlex Development shows a site plan on its website showing a Tractor Supply store to be located at 180 West 1st Street in Apopka.
When The Apopka Voice contacted Tennessee-based Tractor Supply Company yesterday we got this email response from company spokesman, Rob Hoskins:
“Our real estate department has informed me that there is no information to release about a potential new store location in Apopka (FL) at this time.”
Hoskins went on to say, “What we can say at this time is that, as a growth minded company, Tractor Supply Company (TSC) is always looking for potential new store locations that are a good fit as far as the target market is concerned. Concerning a potential location in Apopka, this is especially true in that the area is attractive due to the part-time and hobby farmers, and horse owners in the area.”
The 3.24-acre parcel shown in the Hanlex map is still owned by Hart Nurseries, according to the Orange County Property Appraiser.
