The old Mars Supermarket building in Rosedale has a new tenant.
Preparations are being made to open a new Tractor Supply Company in the old building in the Kings Court Shopping Center on Philadelphia Road.
The building has been vacant when all of the area Mars stores closed in the summer of 2016.
Most of the Mars stores in eastern Baltimore County were bought and converted into a Weis Supermarkets but the Rosedale building remained empty for the past five years.
According to MacKenzie Retail, LLC (the owners of Kings Court Shopping Center), Tractor Supply signed a lease to join the center in February. The new store joins Dunkin, Pizza Hut and the Old Philadelphia Inn.
Tractor Supply sells farm and ranch equipment along with home and garden supplies.
There is a “now hiring sign” at the new Rosedale location and potential employees can apply by going to www.tractorsupply.jobs
