— Blain's Farm & Fleet has bought land in Rockton, Ill., for the 35th store in its chain.

The new store will be at the intersection of Rockton Road and Quail Trail in the village.

Officials said the new store will allow Blain's Farm & Fleet to further expand service to the greater Rockford area. Blain's now has Illinois stores in Rockford, Loves Park and Belvidere.

The Farm & Fleet retail stores are owned by individual corporations and are not subsidiaries of Blain Supply.

Founded in 1955, Blain's Farm & Fleet stores are family owned specialty discount retailers with locations in Wisconsin, Illinois and Iowa.

In Janesville, Blain's is nearing completion on 122,000-square-foot warehouse/distribution center addition at its Racine Street headquarters.

In addition, the Farm & Fleet on Stoughton Road in Madison is undergoing an 18,000-square-foot building addition and an interior and exterior renovation.

That project, along with the one in Janesville, is being done by Design Structures, a commercial and industrial design-build construction firm with offices in Middleton and The Dalles, Ore.
