First of all, if you are reading this post in the year 2015 or later… just stop. Well. Don’t stop. There’s a really good possibility that you came to our site because you Google’d a particular Dewalt Model Number and while this post listed those items that we had on sale for a VERY brief sales event, there MAY be a chance that we have what you’re looking for… but you’re gonna need to call or come into one of our store and let us help you. We have a HUGE selection of power tools and would LOVE to help you out.
It’s been a while since we have mentioned the dangers about Ethanol in our fuels. I have no idea who Toby Tobin is, but apparently he is a news guy in Kansas City. Regardless, let his news report be a reminder to you to watch your fuels!
If you’ve driven in or around Atlanta recently, you may have noticed small somewhat odd signs that have begun to pop up here and there. The signs look similar to the political yard signs that people put out on their front lawn around voting seasons. The only difference is these signs aren’t politically related and bear only 4 words:

I was just asked by a coworker who was helping a customer buy some STIHL Power Equipment. The customer asked him about the True Value Credit Card. They were wanting to make sure that “the deal is still good with the credit cards.”
Quite simply… Absolutely. This is an incredible deal that is available to everyone… All of the time! Let me explain.
Blah Blah Blah… I can’t believe it is another month already… blah blah blah… How can it already be 1/2 way through the year… blah blah blah… I guess this means it is time for another 3 or 4 True Value Bargains of the Month.
Seriously. This year is going by way too quick. June FLEW by. I saw the first ads for Christmas over the weekend! That’s unbelievable. I realize that since I am doing marketing and advertising for Howard Brothers, that I’m often 2-3 months ahead of the calendar. Always planning events and creative ads for 8-10 weeks in the future, and yes, I am starting to look at Black Friday/Small Business Saturday and Christmas ads. I guess that is probably one of the biggest reasons why I’m always amazed that it is already the first of another month.
Are you ready for some REALLY EXCITING Sales from True Value. I figured instead of getting creative and try to write catchy copy regarding the 4 items this month, I’d let the brands themselves do the talking. Are you ready?
I was watching the World Cup this past weekend and since I am not much of a soccer fan and don’t understand all the nuances of the game,
I was drawn to other things besides the actual game. For instance… the Grass. Now I would normally call this a soccer field, but I was corrected this morning that it is called a pitch.
The grass of the World Cup Pitch is perfection.
I love looking at well designed grass stripes. We see pictures from our customers all the time of projects that they are working on that end up having BEAUTIFULLY striped grass. You can do it too.
Check out this article from Exmark about how to get stripes on your lawn. Try it out and send us your pictures. We’d love to see them.
If you’re like me, you’ve been asked a few times this morning, “Do you have any plans for the fourth?”
First of all, I guess I should state that Howard Brothers will be closed on July 4th. We will operate on normal hours July 3rd and July 5th, but we want our family of employees to spend time with their familes and celebrate the birth of our nation and the freedoms we have.
I admit it. I’m a space junkie. Anything NASA related… I love. I closely follow commercial space ventures and can’t wait for the United States to get their act together so that we can send up our own missions and people on our rockets with our ships.
In the 1990s, NASA started using the Makita 6213D on the international space station. Apparently they’re still in use or have been upgraded to newer NiMH battery. I wonder if they have any Lithium Ion tools onboard.
Check out this video from Russian Colonel Maksim Surayev, who has recently started sharing candid videos on YouTube of life onboard the International Space Station.
Who hasn’t picked up a cordless drill and pretended it was a gun?
For a while now, we’ve been on the hunt for a premium gas grill that we’d feel as much pride with as the Big Green Egg and Traeger product line. We have found that product… and the sad thing is we didn’t have far to look. They were stocked in our True Value Warehouse, and we’ve often thought of them as an option, but we kept looking…
This past Saturday, we held the 1st annual Pinebox Derby Grand Prix at our Duluth store. We were raising money for CURE Childhood Cancer. It was incredible the turn out we had for this event. We really did not know what to expect, but now that we have gotten past this first event, we are even more excited about the event for next year. Continue Reading…
