Vacated Abilene Alco Facility Purchased

KSAL StaffJanuary 6, 2015

The recently closed Abilene Alco distribution center has been purchased and will soon be reborn.

Orscheln Farm and Home LLC, a Midwest family owned rural retailer, on Monday announced its acquisition of a 357,000 square foot distribution center located on 54 acres in Abilene.

In announcing the acquisition, Stephen Chick, Orscheln President, said “this is a great way to start 2015. Orscheln is excited about the growth opportunities represented by the addition of this second distribution center and is now poised to double the number of Orscheln Farm and Home retail stores as we continue our growth and expansion.”

Orscheln, one of the largest family owned rural retail companies in the U.S., currently operates a chain of over 160 retail stores located in Arkansas, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Missouri, Nebraska and Oklahoma, which are serviced by a state of the art distribution center at
the company headquarters in Moberly, Missouri.

Orscheln stores serve the needs of rural customers focusing on animal and livestock care supplies and equipment, farm goods, and workwear.

Orscheln is finalizing a time schedule and operational plans for the Abilene distribution center which will be announced at a later date.
