About True Value, History and Headquarters Information
True Value is one of the world’s leading wholesalers with a globally recognized brand. They own and run hardware member stores. True Value Company offers facilities to its customers such as a product set with market-customized assortments at competitive prices, superior product availability, and innovative marketing programs. Along with all these, it also offers value-added services like eCommerce ship-to-store, store remodel support and True Value University; all within a flexible model that does not need any membership. It serves over 4,400 stores in over 60 different countries.
Headquartered in Chicago, Cotter & Company was established in 1948 by John Cotter that included 25 independently-owned and operated stores. After purchasing Hibbard, Spencer, and Bartlett in 1963, Cotter got the company, along with the True Value trademark for $2500. Later in 1997, ServiStar joined hands with Cotter & Company and formed TruServ Corporation. After facing problems for a few years, it formed new management and got rid of the ServiStar and Coast to Coast brand names. After taking all these measures, it closed many regional distribution centers and by 2006, TruServ Corporation was renamed True Value Company.
