Southern States, a farm supply cooperative, will open on of its biggest stores yet in Rock Hill on July 17.

Construction crews began on the superstore at 982 N. Anderson Road in January and have recently completed the building’s exterior, according to a statement from the company.

The new Rock Hill store sits on a 4.77 acre lot, and its 12,000-square-foot showroom will feature farm and home supplies like animal feeds, bagged fertilizer, seed and animal health supplies.

Its 10,000-square-foot outside display will feature gates, bunk feeders, fencing and other farm items, the company said.

The store has already hired 14 workers and is seeking more as store setup progresses. Interested applicants can learn more on Southern States’ website.

“Southern States looks forward to serving the cattle, equine and rural customers in the Rock Hill area and providing products and services to meet their needs,” Anne Clingenpeel, vice president of retail operations for Southern States, said in a statement.

Richmond, Va.-based Southern States, one of the largest agricultural cooperatives, operates over 1,200 retail outlets across 23 states and has been in business for over a century.
