Since 1912, four generations of Zimmermanns have stocked the shelves at the 15,000-square-foot Zimmermann True Value Hardware store with durable hardware supplies, gardening equipment, and other home-improvement goods. Shoppers can peruse the aisles to pick up handy items such as screwdriver sets, hammers, and miniature contractors for DIY projects. Standing strong by their commitment to superior customer service, the staff also provides convenient services including knife sharpening, computerized paint matching, and screen repair.
Since 1998, the licensed technicians at Lanaville Contracting have kept outdoor surfaces such as windows, decks, and driveways looking like new. A handful of services aid in this endeavor, including pressure washing to oust dirt and grime, painting to lend a home a pleasing hue, and sealing and staining to prevent a beautiful deck from suffering water damage. These professionals focus on providing a twofold potential benefit: not only do homeowners get to enjoy a more pristine home while they've got it, but also the enhanced curb appeal could help with resale value when they want to sell it.

In addition to furniture, an extensive selection of accents adds stylish touches with wine cabinets, lamps, mirrors, and rugs.
