CHICAGO, AUGUST 20, 2015 – True Value Company today announced Miami Home Centers as the newest member of the cooperative. The family-owned hardware and home improvement store is a complete home center offering home, kitchen and bath décor throughout south Florida.

“Becoming a part of the True Value family and having access to exclusive brands further supports our competitive edge,” said Dan Hitchcock, owner of Miami Home Centers. “One of the primary drivers of converting to True Value was being able to offer our customers their private label paint, Easy Care,” said Hitchcock.

As a successful retailer for more than 30 years, Hitchcock knows the value of being able to offer customers top-rated paint. True Value paint has been rated the No. 1 best value among the top 10 rated paints by a leading consumer magazine.

“Our top priority is helping our Members achieve retail excellence while accelerating their growth and profitability,” said True Value’s Senior Vice President of Growth Tim Mills. “We’re thrilled to welcome Miami Home Centers to the True Value family and become their trusted partner as they continue to grow their entire business, including paint.”

Miami Home Centers serves homeowners, contractors and businesses in the local area with helpful service, certified Business to Business associates and an experienced outside sales team. “Our goal is to continue to offer quality products at competitive prices,” Hitchcock said.
Miami Home Centers is a family-owned and operated business which first opened its doors in 1954. Since then, they have expanded to meet the needs of hardware and home improvement consumers in South Miami, Pinecrest, Tamiami and Miami Beach.
