True Value Readies Fall Reunion Buying Event

The 2019 Fall Reunion will bring thousands of retailers to True Value’s hometown of Chicago for the company’s semi-annual buying event.

Consistent with the company’s recent corporate restructuring, the Fall Reunion is open to all independent hardware retailers, regardless of affiliation.

The event will run from October 3 to 6 in the West building of the McCormick Place convention center. True Value expects more than 9,000 participants, including 4,000 independent retailers and 5,000 vendors. The event also includes speakers, seminars and networking sessions developed to provide additional opportunities for retailers.

On the afternoon of Friday, October 4, guests can experience a multimedia general session where True Value leadership will share information about strategic investments in supply chain, product assortments, hyper-local marketing and field support. Following the session, a welcome reception will feature live musical entertainment from indie pop band Boyce Avenue and classic rockers Chicago.
