QUINCY — Farm and Home Supply has announced the company has acquired three Big R Stores located in Lincoln, Springfield, and Taylorville. Farm and Home Supply plans to turn the Lincoln (1501 Woodlawn Drive) and Taylorville (1160 E 1500 N Road) locations into Farm and Home Supply stores. The Springfield Big R (2804 N Dirksen Parkway) will be temporarily closed and will eventually be reopened as the new Springfield East location for Farm and Home Supply. All three stores will be remodeled, beginning right away in the Lincoln location. In addition to being remodeled, both the Springfield and Taylorville locations will be enlarged in the coming year to provide more space for new products and services.
Both Lincoln and Taylorville will carry major brands such as Carhartt, Cub Cadet, DeWalt, Milwaukee, Stihl, Under Armour, and much more. The stores will include full service small engine repair centers and in-store/ curbside pick-up areas.
To start, store hours for both locations will be Monday through Saturday, 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. and closed Sunday. Lincoln store hours will change in the first quarter to Monday through Saturday, 7:30
a.m. until 8:00 p.m. and Sunday, 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Taylorville store hours will also change in the first quarter and will be Monday through Saturday, 8:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. and Sunday, 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Owner Adam Bowles is thrilled to be expanding the Farm and Home Supply company further into central Illinois.
“We are grateful that we can expand the Farm and Home Supply name into these wonderful communities. We’re excited to provide a wide selection of products and services that customers in the areas count on us for,” he said. Grand Opening dates will be announced at a later time.
Farm and Home Supply was founded in Quincy as a single store in 1960. Since then, the company has expanded across Illinois, Iowa and Missouri to include 13 physical stores as well as an e-commerce website that launched in 2015.
Farm and Home Supply has been, and still is, owned by local families focused on providing knowledgeable, courteous service, offering the products you need to live a great life here in the Midwest. Each store offers products across several different categories, such as sporting goods, farm/ag, automotive, clothing, footwear, pets, livestock and hunting.
Farm and Home Supply is a part of the Mid-States Distributing Company, a buying group of independently owned and operated farm and ranch retailers located throughout the US and Canada. Membership in the group allows smaller retailers to carry a broad range of high-end products and compete with big box stores.
