Try 3 months for $3

FRANKFORT — A 925,000-square-foot distribution center for the Tractor Supply Co. retail chain has opened in an economically struggling part of Herkimer County.

State and local officials were on hand for Thursday's grand opening of the facility in the Herkimer County town of Frankfort, on the Mohawk River 55 miles east of Syracuse.

Howard Zemsky, the Cuomo administration's top economic development official, says the distribution center is expected to employ 350 people within five years. The Nashville, Tennessee-based rural lifestyle retailer will get a $3 million tax break from the state if it reaches its jobs creation goal.

The warehouse will service the company's stores throughout the Northeast.

Officials said the economic development project is Herkimer County's largest in 30 years.
