This is horse and cattle country. TSC has that covered. But if I need vet supplies, grains, chemicals including the restricted ones, fertilizer, diesel, seed, tractor or truck tires and filters,or shotgun shells I go to Co-Op down the road.

I can pick up feed, bolts, chain, pins, clevises, cotter keys, hyd fluid, oil, batteries, fencing supplies, mufflers, rain caps, overalls, tools, etc all in one place.


I agree. TSC is what it is. I have one a few miles from my home and another a few miles from work. Go there once a month or so.

I echo what's been said about TSC. They do carry some good hardware that sold by the pound is cheaper than Westlake ACE hardware. I get my 6V tractor batteries there (Excel), but wouldn't buy their brand of carb rebuild kits (the cheap ones).

I value TSC, but when I can't find it there, it's Feldman's Farm & Home (fuller line of tractor related stuff & hardware).

Suppose everyone has to shop around at 2 or 3 different stores to really find what they need. :)

Can't beat them for hardware by the pound.

Their prices on gun safes and tools, mowers and implements can usually be beat by Harbor Freight, Homier or some of the other Chinese places that sell the identical product.
