State Line Tack, a former subsidiary of PetSmart, Inc., is an equine products and supplies retailer. Beginning as a single outlet in Plaistow, New Hampshire in 1980, on the state line between New Hampshire and Massachusetts, State Line Tack converted an old barn into a two story retail tack store. At that time, it offered the largest selection of horse supplies in a single location nationwide, and offered more reasonably priced lines of inventory than most of its competitors. It grew into a direct mail catalogue retailer within a few years after being purchased by mail order pet supply giant Sporting Dog Specialties. In 1996, PetSmart, Inc. acquired Sporting Dog Specialties and its subsidiary State Line Tack for $45 million mostly paid in company stock, and opened more than 160 full-size (about 3,000 square feet) equine departments inside PetSmart stores. The Plaistow store moved to Salem, New Hampshire, expanding to over 10,000 square feet (930 m2).
In 2007, PetSmart put the State Line Tack name and catalog/internet business up for sale, closing all stores and the Fulfillment Center in Brockport, New York. In 2007, it became a subsidiary of TABcom, LLC and continues to operate as an online retailer.
