On Friday, Tractor Supply Company hosted a special "soft" opening event to welcome area community members to the new store, which is located on Old Exeter Road in the old True Value Hardware building.
Robin Hensley, store manager, Richard Murphy, assistant store manager, and other members of the Tractor Supply Company Cassville store staff greeted those who attended the special event. Staff members were available to offer customer service throughout the three-hour celebration.
Around 100 local community members received a special invitation to the "soft" opening, which offered refreshments, a drawing for a $100 gift card and a chance to shop the new store. The event was attended by City of Cassville officials, local business owners and other professional leaders.

"Store Manager Robin Hensley and her staff put on a great event and said it was quite successful," said Dilbeck. "Tractor Supply Company has been a joy to work with, from the national and regional offices down to the new local staff. We appreciate their professionalism and what they bring to Cassville."
