THOMASVILLE, N.C. — When Joe Moore opened Joe’s Tractor Sales in Thomasville in 1949, it was a decidedly local business. To some degree, it still is.
But the customers have begun to spread out across the country.
“We have people from down on the coast up here, regularly,” Joe said. “Virginia, South Carolina come up here. We’ve sold stuff in all 50 states of the United States and shipped stuff to numerous countries throughout the world.”
They were hit fairly hard during the recession in 2007 but seem to be making it through better this time.
They are doing what they can to keep all their customers rolling along as well even if it’s just being neighborly.
