True Value

True Value is a merchant-cooperative with over 4000 members. The stores sell hardware and home goods.

True Value also owns the brand for several rental stores including Taylor Rental, Party Central, and Grand Rental Station. You will often see a rental store next to a True Value.

Induserve Supply is a brand of stores selling directly to Maintenance and Repair Operations.

A merchant cooperative differs from a franchise in that the central cooperative is owned by the members of the cooperative. This gives the member stores greater latitude when designing their shops.

A result of the cooperative structure is that all True Value stores have different inventories and different management styles. One interesting result is that many True Value stores have their own web site.
