Salmon, Idaho – Murdoch’s Ranch & Home Supply opened today in Salmon, marking the company’s first venture into Idaho. Located 5 blocks west of Saveway at 520 Shoup Street, Murdoch’s leased the former Alco property in December last year.
The 33,000 square-foot building needed a variety of improvements before the western/outdoor goods and apparel retailer could open shop. Perhaps the largest of those was upgrading all interior lighting to LED to better conserve energy. The parking lot and landscape both got facelifts. Other improvements include: new interior floors and paint throughout, new offices and bathrooms, and new glass and doors in the front entry.
“We are so pleased to join such a strong community in such a stunning landscape,” said Heather Hutchison, Murdoch’s Store Manager in Salmon. “We have an amazing team of employees who have worked really hard to open these doors today. All of us are just excited to start serving our customers.”
After an estimated 90 interviews, Murdoch’s hired 22 people.
“There are many others who we would love to extend offers to as this new location grows,” said John Parkes, Murdoch’s Chief People Officer. “The talent is overwhelming, and this is only the beginning.”
The Salmon store marks Murdoch’s 30th brick-and-mortar retail space. It operates 12 stores in Colorado, 11 in Montana, 5 in Wyoming and 1 in Nebraska. Customers can also shop a growing selection of products online at murdochs.com.
Murdoch’s is known for its selection of agriculture supplies, fencing, animal health products, feed, tools, auto accessories, pet food and toys, footwear, firearms and accessories, workwear, western fashion, hardware, lawn and garden supplies, tack, gifts and kids’ toys.
Unlike traditional ranch supply stores, this Murdoch’s location will serve customers with quality brands like Yeti, Columbia, Kuhl, KEEN, and Frontiersman bear spray – a product selection inspired by the many outdoor recreation opportunities around Salmon.
