In addition, the Lexington Tractor Supply is undergoing an interior renovation. Building permits with the City of Lexington show that the estimated cost of the projects will be $500,000, although district manager Travis Russell said the cost will likely be north of that.
“Lexington was selected because it has the space for it,” Russell said.
The greenhouse is being built next to the Tractor Supply store. FMGI out of Woodstock, Georgia, is performing the renovations. Russell said he hope the interior renovation and greenhouse projects are complete by the end of summer.
“It’s a greenhouse, but more about a seamless customer experience,” he added. “Customers can order their products and plants. There will also be a feed barn in the back of the greenhouse. After placing their orders, people can drive-thru to pick up their merchandise. and someone will load it for them. It’s adding convenience.”
The greenhouse will expand on the garden and plant projects already sold at the store inside and on the outside near the entrance doors. There will be soil, mulch, ornamentals, shrubs, trees and garden plants in larger quantities. A re-grand opening will take place at a date to be announced.
“We are looking for the right person to run these garden centers,” Russell said, noting he hopes to hire someone with a horticulture background. Once completed, the store will offer classes on gardening, landscaping along with a variety of horticulture topics.
He said the interior will drastically change during the renovation.
“A new layout will make the customer experience more seamless,” Russell, who is a High Rock Lake area resident, said.
There will be digital graphics and a wellness center for animals.
Merry Maids to open satellite office in Lexington
International home cleaning service franchisor Merry Maids is opening a satellite office in Lexington.
The cleaning company has served Davidson and Davie counties for 5½ years from its Kernersville office, said George Sloyer, manager of Merry Maids of the Triad area. While the Lexington Area Chamber of Commerce held a grand opening ribbon-cutting ceremony on May 7 for the satellite office it will not officially open until June 1, Sloyer said.
“This will allow our employees who serve clients in Davidson and Davie counties to go to the Lexington office to get their equipment and chemicals and then go to work without having to come to Kernersville,” Sloyer said. “Many of these employees live in Davidson County so it makes their jobs local.”
The Merry Maids office is located at 672 East Radio Drive. Anyone who wants to inquire about services offered by Merry Maids can call the Lexington office at (336) 856-0205.
