Chanute, Kan.-based Cleaver Farm & Home was recognized by Chicago-based True Value Co. as one of 13 “Best Hardware Store in Town” honorees.
Accepting the award at a True Value hosted ceremony were Chris and Jason Cleaver.
The retailer converted to the co-op’s Destination True Value format in spring 2013, and the owners see continued community support along with opportunities for growth.
The farm-and-ranch segment has been an area of focus for the wholesaler, which describes the segment as its fastest growing.
The Best Hardware Store in Town program has been recognizing True Value retailers since 2007. “These are talented business people who work incredibly hard to bring their communities the best service and shopping experiences possible,” said John Hartmann, president and CEO of True Value Co.
