True Value to re-open in Spring Valley

A year and a half after a fire destroyed the basement and did major damage to the main floor of the True Value Hardware store building in Spring Valley, Minn., work has begun on a new True Value Hardware store that is being built in a different location in Spring Valley.

The contractor for the new building is Ken Baker Building Company of Fillmore, Minn. and is going up quickly. The new building is being built right next to Kwik Trip in Spring Valley which will be a very convenient location not only for customers but delivery drivers and workers as well. Todd Jones, owner of True Value in Spring Valley, is excited to have the build underway.

Recently Todd has been working at Tracker Industries in Spring Valley building garage door tracks, and says that Tracker is a great place to work, and adds that “Spring Valley should be proud to have Tracker in town.” Tracker Industries is owned by Matt Stier and is located at 1333 Highway 63 N. in Spring Valley. Todd Jones enjoys working at Tracker Industries but once the new True Value Hardware building is ready Todd will be leaving Tracker Industries to work at the hardware store full-time.

As for the former True Value Hardware building which was damaged by fire, Todd is emotionally attached to the building, since it has been in his family for years and he used to live upstairs, so he would like to someday have the main floor and basement ready to use for some sort of business. The apartments upstairs were refurbished shortly after the fire and are still in use. Todd and his wife will take time at a later point to figure out what they will do with the space that used to house True Value Hardware. Besides working full-time, and preparing to open the new store, Todd and his wife are in the process of remodeling a home, so making a decision and completing the work necessary in the former space will have to wait.

Todd stated that the morning after the fire he had “pretty much the whole town of Spring Valley” there to offer their support so it only makes sense that the residents of Spring Valley and the surrounding communities will also support the new True Value Hardware store. After going without a hardware store in town for a year and a half residents will definitely be taking advantage of having the wide array of options that the new True Value Hardware Store will offer.

When the new store is ready to open the business hours will be 7: .....
