Jamestown Feed & Seed To Close After Nearly 40 Years In Business

JAMES CITY-Jamestown Feed & Seed, a popular garden and pet supply store on Richmond Road in Norge, announced on Friday, November 26 that it plans to permanently close at the end of 2021.The announcement was shared with customers and friends on social media.

“We have weathered the storm for far too long, and have made this decision after much contemplation,” Shirley Hatten, Jamestown Feed & Seed owner, posted. “Competition from big box stores, the shift to online shopping, and endless shipping and product availability issues have helped fuel this decision. As the owner, I am also well past retirement age. So, all of us here have decided it is time to close this chapter of our lives.”

Jerry and Kay Ainsworth first opened Jamestown Feed & Seed in 1982. Hatten bought the business in 2008. Jamestown Feed & Seed specializes in lawn and garden supplies, equine supplies, hardware, and pet supplies. The store will close for good on December 31, 2021.

“To our friends and loyal customers, thank you for your unwavering support of us for so many years,” Hatten wrote. “It has been a privilege to help you feed your pet, your horse, and the wild birds, to help you have a beautiful lawn, grow your herbs, plant a bountiful garden, or dress up your flower beds.”
