Home & Garden Showplace is True Value’s garden center business unit. Since 1989, we have become one of the premier buying and business services providers in the garden center industry. We have developed programs that work for any size independent garden center. Not only do we provide excellent support to traditional brick-and-mortar garden centers, we also provide the same retail and business support to professional landscapers and retail growers.

When we acquired our rental division in 1984, True Value became the first national hardware wholesaler to focus on the profit potential of the rental industry. Since then, we have continued to offer independent rental dealers substantial buying power and unique vendor programs specific to rental operations. As a leader in the general equipment industry, our rental division has a positive vision for the future. We strive to expand and enhance the experience of independent rental dealers through our commitment to outstanding customer service and superior product offerings.
