The Best Hardware Store in Town award winners, 2013

The Best Hardware Store in Town award recognizes True Value retailers who exemplify success based on the Five Ps of retailing: People, Place, Price, Product and Promotion.

Now in its seventh year, the award’s selection process begins with retailers, retailer peers and retail consultants nominating stores they believe deserve consideration. From there, mystery shoppers experience two stores per region from the customers’ point of view. Based on the findings, a committee of associates from different areas of the co-op names a winner from each of the co-op’s 13 regions.
