Clovis True Value will be the town's newest hardware store with its Oct. 18 grand opening at 8 a.m.
Located at 1890 Shaw Ave., the 12,600 square-foot store will offer products including hardware, tools, paint, plumbing and lawn and garden supplies.
The store held its soft opening on Sept. 16 to positive response from the community and traffic has reportedly been steady.
"We had the opportunity to start this store with True Value and felt it was a good time with the economy getting better," said Steve Bassett, store owner. "There has been a need for a good hardware store in the Clovis area for a while."
Bassett also said community involvement will be a priority for the store.
"We focus on meeting the expectations of local residents and providing the community with all the products and services they need to complete their small home-improvement projects," Bassett said.
The hardware retailer employs a staff of 15 workers at this location.
The store ownership is a family affair. Bassett's wife Vicki Bassett is also an owner, as is her dad James Rosetta and her sisters Lynda Rosetta-Hall and Donna Rosetta-Hansen and her husband Brad Hansen.
The owners have approximately 150 years of combined experience in the hardware business.
There will be special in-store savings and prizes during the grand opening weekend, as well as a ribbon-cutting ceremony Oct. 19 at 10:30 a.m.
