Out with the Sears, in with the Big R


That empty big box space in the Findlay Village Mall is finally getting a new tenant. Big R, a livestock and farming supply store, will occupy the 95,000 square feet that became vacant when Sears moved out in 2014. Selling assorted lines of feed, farm, yard and garden supplies, sporting goods, equipment, clothing and tools, the big chain store will be competing with a few already established area merchants including Tractor Supply Co. and Family Farm & Home. They are looking to hire approximately 70 workers from the area, so polish up your resume.
Big R, which was started by Bill and Pat Crabtree in Watseka, Illinois in 1964, looks to open in Findlay sometime in the Spring of 2017. They recently opened a store in Lima and there are more than 75 other Big R stores, many independently operated, across the country. Be sure to give them a big friendly Findlay welcome.
