CNRG embraces the farm format in Natchez
Natchez, Miss.-based Central Network Retail Group opened a new Town & Country Farm & Hardware in Natchez yesterday.
The 12,000-sq.-ft. store format has an emphasis on farm.
“This new format is something I’ve thought about for a long time,” said Jimmy R. Smith, chairman of CNRG. “It is a different store from our traditional hardware stores with depth in the farm and feeds, hardware, and automotive assortments.”
The store has a 12,000-sq.-ft. sales floor with a large assortment of hardware, feeds, pet and animal health, farm implements, automotive, fencing, electrical, plumbing, tools, lawn and garden, and home organization items.
The store is three miles south of CNRG’s Home Hardware Center in Natchez.
“We are excited about this new concept for our company, ” said Boyden Moore, president of CNRG. “This new store gives us the opportunity to reach a customer that we haven ’t been able to serve through our other formats. ”
CNRG currently operates 42 home center and hardware stores in Mississippi, Louisiana, Alabama, Tennessee, Texas, North Carolina, and Georgia under the Home Hardware Center, Morrison Terrebonne Lumber Center, NFL Home Center, Elliott’s Hardware, Town & Country Hardware, Habersham Hardware & Homecenter, WT Harvey Lumber, and Town & Country Farm & Hardware brands.
