WEST BEND — A grand opening of
the new West Bend Fleet Farm has been scheduled for Friday, Nov. 22,
one day before the opening of gun deer season.
“The West Bend Fleet Farm is on schedule and the team is looking
forward to opening the new store to serve the community,” said Tom
Carrico, vice president of real estate and construction.
The new store will be located at 3815 W. Washington St. Store
officials announced earlier this month that they intend to hire an
estimated 150 people to staff the 90,000-square-foot store and a
7,000-square-foot convenience store. The store is three times the
size of the existing store.
The current West Bend Fleet Farm, which is about 4 minutes east at
1637 W. Washington St., will close Nov. 18.
