The Equity is pleased to announce that as of October 3, 2022, The Equity Farm & Home Store will open a second location.

After many years in business, the Mathias family decided it was time to exit the retail business and felt it was a good transition to sell store inventory to The Equity who was already a member of the Do-It-Best franchise family and has a reputation for serving customers in our rural communities.
