POWELL - Linton's Big R has sold its store near Casper to concentrate more on its markets in Powell and Riverton.
According to Jim Linton, the company's branch at Evansville outside Casper did well but was not a good fit for the company.
Linton said the company's business model is set up more for the Powell and Riverton stores, which cater more to the farming market. He said the Casper-area store had a more urban orientation.
Linton said the store was sold to Murdoch's Ranch and Home Supply.
The sale will allow Powell-based Linton's to concentrate on its two remaining stores. The company plans to expand the Riverton store, and add more product lines in Powell.
