WEST POINT - Hefty Seed Company’s newest store will be open for business just south of West Point, NE on Friday, December 20, 2013. This location marks the first Nebraska store for one of the nation’s largest ag retailers.
Hefty Seed West Point will be managed by agronomists Chad Odvody and Jacob Gubbels, who have 25 years of combined agronomy experience in eastern Nebraska.
“We’re pleased to be a part of bringing the first Hefty location to Nebraska and to the community here in West Point,” said Odvody. “Area farmers will benefit from low pricing that our new facility and vast product network enables us to offer for both seed and ag chemical supplies.”
The facility includes bulk storage facilities allowing 37,000 gallons of ag chemical to be stored on site, as well as a fully equipped ag chemical supply warehouse and seed storage area. Upon opening, Hefty Seed West Point will have pricing on more than 400 varieties of ag chemical that will be available throughout the season.
Other features of the site include an office wing that incorporates meeting areas for agronomy and informational sessions throughout the year. Upcoming events at the site include an Open House on Thursday, January 16, 2014, where the public will be invited to tour the new facilities.
