New Orscheln to be completed by November

Aug. 02, 2018

The Junction City Orscheln Farm and Home Store project, which will be located at 121 E. Chestnut St., has begun to take some shape.

The project started in April, and construction crews from Glove Con Inc., based in Fulton, Mo., have worked on excavating the property, foundation slabs, and some metal framing work which started Tuesday.

The appearance of the store will resemble the company’s iconic barn appearance with siding and a covered walkway.  

Orscheln will also have a 16,500-square-foot outdoor sales area. 

“So, they won’t have stuff in the parking lot,” Bud Price, the project manager, said. 

The store won’t have its own entrance from Chestnut Street, but traffic will be able to drive in through CVS Pharmacy’s. 

“People can access it from all four sides if they want to,” Price said. 

Local businesses such as T&M Concrete Construction and J&K Contracting were hired to work on the new store. 

The parking lot will be the last part of the project, but the stabilization for parking is already completed. 

The store will be approximately 37,904 square feet and, according to Price, it has to be completed by November. Overall, it’s a six-month project.

Orscheln Farm and Home is a retail chain store selling farm and ranch supplies, with approximately 175 locations in the U.S.
