New king in town – Rural King opens in Warsaw
WARSAW, Ind. (WNDU) – There’s a new king in town.
Rural King opens a new site in Warsaw.
The new store is located at 3350 Lake City Highway and will host opening sales and giveaways all week.
Kmart previously occupied the space, but the building has been vacant since 2019.
Rural King is a farm and door-to-door store that sells live chicks, rabbits, ducks and geese. They also sell farm feed, steel, Carhartt products, guns and ammunition, and they even have an in-store mechanic.
“Thank you to the community for the outpouring of support they showed us over the weekend. It was really important to us,” said Warsaw Rural King store manager Michele Scott.
She said they had 65 employees and were looking to hire about 30 more.
Rob Parker, President and CEO of the Kosciusko County Chamber of Commerce, said, “There is pent-up demand in this county and this community. This community has more buying power than people realize. We have one of the best farming communities in the state and lead in many categories. They (Rural King) are filling a void in this community.
He also said he finds it amazing that Rural King has never closed a single store they have opened.
Rural King was founded in 1960.
