Schweiss doors go on newest Mills Fleet Farm store
Mills Fleet Farm, founded in 1955 by the Mills family, is a growing company with a retail chain of 34 stores in Minnesota, North Dakota, Wisconsin and Iowa. It’s newest store recently celebrated its grand opening at Ankeny, Iowa — a midstate location of approximately 45,000 residents located north of downtown Des Moines bordering on an agricultural and suburban-based economy.
The newest Ankeny store, the second of its kind in Iowa, covers a total of 261,000 sq. ft., making it one of the larger Mills Fleet Farm stores. They average from 2,500 to 3,000 customers per day depending on the season. The store has 210 employees.
Customer service and efficiency is paramount to Fleet Farm’s day-to-day operations. Helping to add to the efficiency was the addition of two 24’ 4” x 17’ 5” custom-made Schweiss doors. The Mills Fleet Farm hydraulic doors are positioned side-by-side and open to the outdoor garden center.
