Tractor Supply Company, the men's workwear retailer and farm store chain, is expanding its apparel and footwear departments to offer a broader selection of rural lifestyle products.

Men's and ladies' apparel and footwear are all part of the new mix for the company, which is one of the largest retail farm and ranch store chains in the United States. It has introduced a line of ladies' footwear, including premium Ariat leather footwear, in its ladies' apparel department which will feature alongside ladies' Rockies jeans and an assortment of Wrangler ladies' clothing.

The men's apparel department will offer an expanded leather footwear selection, including Justin boots and Ariat leather footwear, as well as brands such as Wolverine and Georgia Boot. Resistol hats and clothing have been added to the men's mix, along with an enhanced Carhartt and Wrangler selection.

Joe Scarlett, chairman and CEO of Tractor Supply Company said: "The expansion and re-merchandising of our apparel and footwear departments is directly related to our strategy of being a niche retailer providing differentiated products. Our newly expanded apparel departments will feature more regionalised product assortments to capitalise on the demands and brand preferences of our customers and to better serve their needs."
