Best Hardware True Value, 237 N. Apache Trail in Apache Junction, is celebrating its 39th anniversary.

The store opened in 1979 with owners Louis and Sue Deadmond, along with their sons Vince and Olen.

“The store grew and became a successful Apache Junction landmark. Vince and Olen bought the store and several of their kids have worked in the store. Currently, Olen’s wife Kelli works in the office and Vince’s daughter Sarah works on the floor and in the office, according to a release.

“Best Hardware owes much of its success to the hard work and dedication of past and present employees,” Vince Deadmond said in the release.

“Many of our customers have been with us for most of that 39-year run. Many of our customer’s kids grew up shopping in the hardware store and now they are the ones doing the household projects under the sink or on the roof, just like their parents or grandparents used to do,” he said.

“Stop by Best Hardware for solutions to your hardware problems and help us celebrate our 39th anniversary.  During our celebration we have some special pricing on close-outs that will save you 50 percent or more. Shop while selection is still good,” he said in the release.
