We shared our sneak peek within our Instagram stories – check them out! We had fun dancing, eating food, looking through the aisles and making the baby laugh with the giant life size horse.  We were given the royal treatment and had a chance to check out the store. It is huge, bright, organized and the staff is super friendly.  Literally everyone there was all smiles.  My kids loved it and they especially loved the chocolate fountain treat.  We cannot wait for the rest of Lake Country to experience Fleet Farm.

One of the best moments of the afternoon was when the CEO emphasized how involved they hope to be in our community. They awarded a grant to the local Future Farmers of America chapter!  You can tell Fleet Farm will be a great neighbor!

Any questions – feel free to ask us!  Hope to see you on the 25th for the Grand Opening Celebration Kick-off!!!
