Blain's Farm & Fleet - Specialty discount retailer
Blain's Farm & Fleet
Blain's Farm & Fleet is certainly a one-stop shop for any home project, shopping trip or whatever one might need. Customers can find it all - from clothing, footwear and sporting goods for men, women and children, to supplies for fishing, gardening and hunting. Not to mention, there's a whole range of options for your automobile - from replacement auto parts to services in the auto center - and for the home, with plenty of items in the furniture, hardware, houseware and gardening categories. But this description doesn't quite do its inventory justice, with over 150,000 items available in every store. Customers in the Illinois, Iowa and Wisconsin areas can enjoy a wide selection of products at discount prices in one of Blain's Farm & Fleet 35 retail stores.
Blain's Farm & Fleet - Great brands, great value
Blain's Farm & Fleet was founded by brothers Claude and Bert Blain in 1955. Since then, things sure have changed in the company. Today each Blain's Farm and Fleet store is owned by separate companies under a franchise agreement, but remains as a division of the Farm and Fleet Corporations. However, merchandising, management and distribution services to each store are provided by Blain Supply, Inc., which is still family-owned to this day with Bert's daughter Jane Blain Gilbertson at the helm. As a family business, the company has a steadfast commitment to family, customer service, quality as well as to the community, through various donations, scholarships and programs.
