“What can you buy at Tractor Supply Company?” according to its website. “Everything except tractors. At TSC, customers find everything they need to maintain their farms, ranches, homes and animals. As the inventors of the ‘do it yourself’ trend, our customers handle practically every chore themselves, from repairing wells to building fences, welding gates together, constructing feed bins, taking care of livestock and pets, repairing tractors and trucks and building trailers for hauling.”
