Oct. 1, 2018- West Bend, WI – Stories about Fleet Farm building a new store in West Bend have been posted at WashingtonCountyInsider.com since late 2016. Today, I received a press release from corporate Fleet Farm about a new store being built in West Bend.
Fleet Farm today announced plans to relocate its West Bend, Wisconsin store and expand the breadth and depth of products and services offered.
The new West Bend store will be located at the corner of Highway 33 and County Road Z. Construction on the 190,000-square-foot store is scheduled to begin by early November.
Once complete, customers can expect to experience a completely new store design that incorporates the best from 60 years of building Fleet Farm stores. This new store layout is easy-to-shop, allows customers to interact with the product and highlights the breadth and depth of our merchandise.
The newly designed interior will feature an expanded product assortment including apparel and accessories for women, men and kids, an extensive pet care line, select pantry items and snacks, toys and sporting goods and home items. In addition, the West Bend Fleet Farm is focused on convenience and will offer automotive services, including oil changes and tire rotations and a gas station.
“Fleet Farm has been rooted in the West Bend community since 1961 and this new store will allow us to showcase our full assortment of products and services,” said Fleet Farm’s Vice President of Real Estate and Construction, Tom Carrico. “We are so proud to be reinvesting in West Bend.”
Fleet Farm opened the existing West Bend store in 1961 as the sixth store in the company’s fleet. The existing 45,000-square-foot West Bend Fleet Farm will close when the new store celebrates its grand opening in the Fall of 2019.
