Agricultural retailer Coastal Farm & Ranch plans to open a new store in The Dalles, Ore., next spring.
The company, which has 10 locations in Oregon and Washington, has been approved by local authorities to remodel a former "Shop 'N Kart" store on the west side of town.
Coastal Farm & Ranch had been looking to open a Columbia Gorge site and zeroed in on The Dalles as an urban center with a surrounding rural community, according to a press release.
Roughly a third of the new store will be devoted to clothing, another third to hardware, tools and automotive and the rest to animal supplies.
The retail chain has operated in the Northwest since 1963 and employs more than 350 people.
