After many months of tirelessly making the property compliant with city ordinances, of choosing which hardware provider would be used, and building a new building on the two acres the family owns, the Van Alstyne True Value Hardware Store opened its doors Monday.
And it was a good opening, with hundreds of people attending, either to make purchases or to just get a good look at this highly-anticipated retail store. Family met each shopper at the door, welcoming them with smiles and tours.
The hardware store is locally-owned and operated by Gerald and Jahron Strother, their daughter Amanda, and her husband,   .
Choosing True Value as supplier over the other options was based on the company’s policy of allowing their stores to decide what they will stock.
The store is resplendent with not only construction-type hardware, but also with (among other things) barbeque, yard and garden, pet, crafts, pool, farm animal feed, and fishing equipment and supplies. True to the ladies’ desire, there is even a section available for their home-preserved and baked items. That section can expand, and much of it was sold on the first-day open.
The Van Alstyne True Value Hardware Store is at 330 E Van Alstyne Parkway, which is the corner of Van Alstyne Parkway and N. Main Drive. They will be open from 7 a.m.-7 p.m. Monday-Fridays, and from 8 a.m.-4 p.m. on Saturdays. Amanda said they haven’t yet decided if they will be open Sundays. They do accept debit and credit cards, checks with ID, and yes, even cash. The owners are willing to set up charge accounts.

One can go onto Facebook — Van Alstyne True Value, for updates on that and other information. The phone number is 972-658-4234.
