CELEBRATING 7 YEARS OF FASHIONS & FINDS! We launched the Fashions and Finds retail division of Tri-County’s business back in 2007, when our country was moving into one of the most challenging economic stretches in recent memory. But, with resolve, we stayed the course, and thanks to our customers – the equestrian and sporting lifestyle community – we’ve built a thriving retail business. Over the last seven years, we’ve complemented our offering of event correct riding apparel with name brand fashionable looks like Alexander James, Alp-nRock, Ariat, Beretta, Dubarry, La Martina, Lucchese, Patagonia, Purdey, Tredstep and many more. And today, throughout the store, you can find many unique gifts and furnishings from around the world. Thousands of customers over the last seven years have made us successful by saying, “I got it at the feed store.” WE LOVE THIS BEAUTIFUL PLACE. We are very conscious of protecting our environment in all that we do. Our building was built to be low-impact on the environment, and when we send customers home with their purchases in a used shopping bag or an empty dog food box, it’s not that we’re trying to save a nickel. It’s because we are doing what we can to offset a major source of pollution – packaging. While these may seem like small steps in the global scheme of things, we’re proud to take them and we thank our customers for taking them with us. WE NEVER FORGET WHERE WE CAME FROM. Bill Jackson founded Tri-County Feeds in 1978. Over the years, Tri-County has grown to provide for thousands of feed customers in Hunt Country. In recent years, Tri-County has even created their own line of custom feeds in eco-friendly bags to meet the unique needs of different customers in our area. We support one of the largest equestrian communities in the country, with the highest quality feeds, hay and bedding. In recent years, we’ve complemented our offerings with tack, nutritional supplements, grooming supplies, and everything our equestrian community needs for proper care and nutrition. WE SUPPORT THE COMMUNITY THAT SUPPORTS US. We take pride in supporting our community, its hardworking people and local causes that are making a difference. While we need to remain conscious of our overhead and running a profitable business, we believe it’s critical to set aside a budget every year to support local organizations. We support the Piedmont Environmental Council, the Goose Creek Association, Middleburg Humane Foundation, local equestrian events and many student organizations. We love this community and believe in giving back to so many who have supported us through the years. Join our 7th Anniversary celebration and save 20% on select items through October 1, 2014.
