Blain’s Farm & Fleet Opens in Grand Traverse County

From farm products and pet food to kids clothes and sporting goods, a new business now open in Grand Traverse County has something for everyone.

Blain’s Farm & Fleet will host its grand opening in a couple of weeks, but Thursday was the store’s soft opening. 

They hosted a chamber party Wednesday night, and opened the doors to customers Thursday morning.

Blain’s Farm & Fleet has 40 full-time employees, plus another 60 part-time workers, and they’re still hiring!

They say they’re optimistic about the success of the new store in a new market.

Employees and customers have been waiting about six months since they started moving dirt at the site on U.S. 31 south.

“It’s wonderful, the last six weeks my team and I have worked extremely hard to make it right and getting our shelves quickly filled so we can open the doors on time,” said Gail Montgomery, store manager.

The official grand opening for Blain’s Farm & Fleet is May 2.
