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 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.
