A new 10,900-square-foot Argyle Feed Store will open on Dec. 23 at FM 407 and FM 1830, offering everything from animal and pet supplies to hardware and sporting goods to lawn and garden supplies and more.
Jason Raynor and his father, Tim, recently took over ownership of the Argyle Feed Store with plans to make it a one-stop shop for everyone in the region. Tim Raynor will be on site to offer his knowledge in agriculture obtained through managing his own cattle operation.
“We want everyone to have fun in a family-friendly, country atmosphere,” he said of the store that features stone, wood and tin elements combined to create a country design.
Amber Kroeger, a longtime employee with Argyle Feed Store, will remain with the company serving as the manager.
“There’s no way we would have done this if Amber wasn’t a part of it,” said Jason Raynor, who works as general manager for LS, Inc., a family-owned operation that provides a complete line of products to veterinary facilities including a number of zoos. LS, Inc. has sold Purina for 15 years and is the fastest growing dealer in the state and among the top three in the country. Delivery service also will be available.
Argyle Feed plans to have the latest technology for checkout while supplying old school values and service by making sure each customer never carries out their own bags.
Argyle Feed will also offer a conference room complete with a flat screen TV for area groups to gather as well as special educational seminars offering the latest information on animal feed and care.
The wide porch entrance will feature a place to sit and chat as well as seasonal items. Inside, visitors will find departments segmented to easily find what they are looking for – whether alfalfa and hay for their stock or a handful of nuts and bolts for their latest building project. Case knives, Yeti coolers, gas and propane, bird houses, deer feeders and windmills will be among the many items available.
Amber Kroeger, a longtime employee with Argyle Feed Store, will continue to serve customers with a smile as manager.
An extensive outdoor gardening section will offer greenhouses, a wide array of plants and even a koi pond to sit and relax while shopping.
With the grand opening slated for Jan. 17, Argyle Feed Store is offering residents a chance to fill out a survey to enter a drawing where they can be eligible to win a $500 gift card, a year of free feed and more.
In addition, Argyle Feed has joined with Ranch Hand Rescue in Argyle to be their only feed supplier and proud supporter of its farm animal rescue efforts, Jason Raynor said.
“We want to be part of the community,” he said, adding that feedback will be more than welcome.
Whether you raise exotics, have a backyard chicken coop, enjoy adding to your landscape or love to hunt, it’s likely you’ll find exactly what you need at Argyle Feed Store.
And, if not, just ask for Amber.
