MINERVA, Ohio — One of the best things about shopping at a hardware store in a small community is that customers get even more than they pay for. In addition to the purchase, they get the personal attention that can’t be found at all those big stores.
At Minerva True Value, their business is more than selling you a hammer and nails, it’s keeping you satisfied and meeting your needs.
Their business slogan is: Minerva True Value — Start right. Start here.
“Minerva True Value strives to continuously bring in new products to make their customer’s lives easier and more enjoyable,” said owner Jill McDermott.

The store certainly has all the “old school” equipment needed for your projects, but also makes an effort to stock the newest products on the market. Minerva True Value wants to keep you working, while making your job the easiest it can be.
Among the newest products Minerva True Value offers are:
— Carhartt work dry shirts for men and women, They guard against moisture and help control odors, so you can keep working longer and feel comfortable.
— Grass seed that is coated with a product to help it hold moisture, so it will germinate more evenly. This gives you a nice, full yard, even if you forget to water it once in a while.
