Chandlers celebrates opening of seventh Country Store

The opening of Agco main dealer Chandlers new Country Store at its Shefford, Beds depot was celebrated in late June.

This brings the number of Chandlers Country Stores to seven, each of which is based at its agricultural machinery depots. These have proved extremely popular with the dealer’s agricultural customers as well as the general public since the first opened at its Belton, Lincs depot in 1990 and the selection of products on offer has increased steadily responding to customer demand.

“We supply a wide range of rural, pet and equine products to suit our local customers, including, dog and cat feed, small holder feed ranges, equine products for the rider and horse – along with Country Clothing and boots, power tools from Milwaukie, powered garden tools and mowers from Honda & Stihl and much much more. It’s said that we well everything from a ‘tin tack to a tractor’, explained Chandlers (Farm Equipment Ltd) managing director Gavin Pell.

The new Country Store includes plenty of showroom space for farm supplies and sundries, spare parts, and workshop and maintenance equipment.

“The new Country Store is approximately six miles west of Biggleswade and serves customers from Biggleswade to Hitchin. Our very successful opening event on Saturday 22nd June attracted more than 200 customers for a day of family fun, and included free tea and cake and we were joined in the evening by our local farming customers for a hog roast and VIP tour of the redeveloped depot and new Country Stores.”

The site at Chicksands, Shefford has been extensively redeveloped since Chandlers opened its depot there in 2014 including brand new 5,000ft2 agricultural workshops adjacent to the original site, along with refurbished offices a larger parts department and yard.

“We offer same day delivery of stock throughout our network of Country Stores and look forward to serving the rural community of Beds, Herts and Bucks from Chandlers Shefford,” added Gavin.
