ADD Lumber True Value Wows the Crowd in Irving, N.Y.

September 13, 2018
On June 29, Andy Dziduch and family launched a three-day grand opening celebration for their new ADD Lumber location in Irving, New York. Formerly Smith’s True Value, the store underwent a full remodel, which transformed its 27,000 sq. ft. of retail space into a hardware superstore that has the whole community talking.

Known for its excellent product selection, ADD Lumber specializes in lumber and building materials, with extensive plumbing, electrical and lawn sections. The Dziduchs have owned the Irving location since 2005, in addition to their two other True Value stores in Dunkirk and Westfield, New York. The return of their equity money helped kick-start this remodel, refreshing the space with additions such as the popular paint carousel. The proof is in the pudding…True Value SKUs are up 12.9% since the grand opening!

91-year-old founder/owner Andy was on hand to welcome special guests including county executive George Borrello, True Value retail consultant Mark Dierdorf, regional director Paul Bernard, and Margaret Craighead from the Cleveland RDC. Vendors also led product demos, followed by a bag sale, free food, and a donation drive for the local food pantry.

“It all turns out so beautifully when you remodel,” co-owner (and Andy’s daughter) Louise remarks. “There’s such a WOW factor! We’ve gotten lots of great feedback from customers and it’s definitely worth doing.”

Congratulations to the Dziduch family and the ADD Lumber True Value team!
