Written by wendycorr on January 9, 2019
Linton’s Big R has been a cornerstone business in Powell for the last 58 years. But they closed their doors this week, to re-open on Friday under a new name and new management.
The Linton family sent out a notice this week to their customers and team members, expressing their gratitude for the region’s business and friendship. They announced that when they re-open on Friday, they will do so under the “Murdoch’s” franchise, a business based in Bozeman. Murdoch’s has also purchased the Linton’s Big R store in Riverton.
According to the press release, Jim and John Linton, who are the CEO and COO of Linton’s Big R, are moving on to the next chapter of their lives.
The release noted that Jim Linton will continue to oversee Big R Ranch & Home in Jackson.
