Really great store, and I love the response from the owner below! Really bad of a shoplifter to come on here and badmouth them! The Clark family are great people, and Platte City is really lucky to have such an awesome store. Huge amount of merchandise, very cheap prices (way better than the "Screw Value" a few blocks away) and a lot of knowledge from the employees.
The rest of the story. As a rule, we have chosen to not respond to the negative comments some people have posted regarding our store, given that they cannot truthfully be described as anything but blatant lies. However, Matthew McDavitt

I've had several poor shopping experiences here, as the employees have never been helpful or friendly. Typically, they act as if they could care less if I shop there or not.
However, my latest experience with Running Horse, will be my last. I recently purchased a $600 piece of Stihl equipment from them. After only a short time, I received a recall notice from the manufacturer. At about the same time, the piece of equipment failed to start. When I took it in for warranty service, the mechanic explained that the recalled gas cap was the cause of all of the problems.
Great. Problem solved with a simple warranty service. Not so fast. Running Horse Ranch called me after I left the store to inform me that I owed them $30 for service.
I paid them the $30 after some arguing, but that will be the last dime that I ever spend with them.
Eagan's TruValue just around the corner is also a Stihl dealer and are a great group of people.
The best farm store around!.
Everything's here in one place! I started shopping here when my neighbor told me they had the best prices around on Science Diet, and I still can't believe how much stuff they carry!
Last spring, my husband bought two trimmers at Lowe's, and both were dead out of the box. When he took them back, they couldn't get them started either. He got his money back, we went to Running Horse, and they sold us one already assembled, started it up for us, and how to maintain it. That's customer service you just can't find anymore. Everybody there is so friendly and helpful!
worst place to shop in Platte City. Do not shop here if you want to return or exchange anything. They will not let you.
Best little secret in NW MO. Just love the selection and helpful staff..... No better place to buy clothes, hardware and pet food....
The Most Unfriendly, Rudest People In Platte City. If you want NO customer service, RUDE clerks at check-out, then Running Horse Ranch & Home is your place. OMG, I can't believe people like this stay in business. You have to load all your supplies with no help from anyone. In fact, the owner saw me loading top soil recently, and he went back inside so as not to help. Their attitudes are not new, they have always been rude and never provided any customer service. I only go there because it's convenient.
