The third business to populate the Minden Gateway Center is scheduled to open a the end of the month.
Residents have been driving by Minden’s Tractor Supply Co. store looking for signs that it’s open, and one finally appeared saying the story is expected to open Jan. 31
Tractor Supply Store has been in the works since it was approved in December 2012 by the Minden Town Board, just three months before the new Maverik opened its location on Highway 88.
Originally billed as a lifestyle center featuring a grocery store, restaurant, pharmacy and retail space, the 13-acre location at the intersections of highways 395 and 88 was approved for 195,000 square feet of commercial space in 2007.
The only business to successfully build and open before the center went bankrupt in 2009 was the Holiday Inn Express.
Maverik purchased the remaining 11 acres for $3 million in the last days of 2011.
