In Canon City, Colo., Fontana True Value is carrying a new stamp of approval: “True Value Best Hardware Store in Town.”

Jim Fontana and Susan Palladino accepted the designation during a True Value Co. ceremony in Atlanta, during which 13 stores were honored.

In Canon City, Fontana True Value is known for empowering employees to make decisions, including returns and price matching. 

“Every day I get customer feedback about how friendly and helpful the employees are,” said Fontana. 

The store is also active in the community through the local Chamber of Commerce, local charities and by providing supplies to local schools during back to school season. 

The Best Hardware Store in Town program has been recognizing True Value retailers since 2007. “These are talented business people who work incredibly hard to bring their communities the best service and shopping experiences possible,” said John Hartmann, president and CEO of True Value Co.
