(Fremont County, Wyo.) - It all started in 1960 when H. Angus "Bud" Linton founded Linton Supply Company, a retail business that primarily offered farm and ranch supplies, in Powell, Wyoming. In 1972, Linton Supply Company adopted the "Big R" brand name, establishing the Linton's Big R Store. 10 years later in 1982, Linton's Big R opened in Riverton, Wyoming, becoming one of the largest farm and ranch retailers in the state.
Today, Linton's Big R Stores serve Wyoming and southern Montana from locations in Powell, Riverton and Jackson Hole, offering one of the largest selections of general merchandise in Wyoming.
