Tractor Supply Co. TRF Location Sets Grand Opening Date 05 Oct 17

She says they found the area friendly and welcoming, and hated the thought of relocating when J.C. Penny’s closed in down town Thief River Falls.

Former Penny’s manager Tina Doerr, hard at work yesterday with her staff, stocking shelves and getting ready for a “soft opening” Saturday, the 14th, with a Tractor Supply Company Grand Opening October 21st, on Highway #1 and #59 east, the former Super One location in Thief River Falls.

Doerr says she moved from Utah with her husband to take on the management position at Penny’s in the months before the store closing was announced and was happy to say “yes” when she was recruited by Tractor Supply to manage their new Thief River Falls store, bringing other former Penny’s employees along with her.

And what about the former Penny’s location? Well, we asked Mayor Brian Holmer about that yesterday on Open Line with the Mayor offering no details but saying they’ve seen significant interest in the prime down town space – and hope to have an announcement before Christmas.
