TRU Country & Garden
This exciting new banner was introduced to Canadian communities in Ontario in early 2012. These retailers are serviced through TruServ Canada, a distribution company that offers a vast range of products for over 755 independent dealers in Canada. The company's strength is in providing flexible solutions to independent retailers and is part of one of the largest distribution networks in Canada.'
Part of the Community
TRU Country & Garden store owners and staff are part of the fabric of their community. It is not just a place to work, it is where they live, volunteer, coach and raise their families. Store owners recognize the importance of supporting their community. From supporting the buidling of new recreational facilities to raising funds for local and national charities, TRU Country & Garden retailers are committed to seeing their community become a better place to live.
From it's beginnings in 1916, as Macleod's, the company grew from a mail order business to retail stores owned and operated by independent owners. Over the years, through a commitment to having everything that a family needs, to servicing do-it-yourselfers, and contractors, it grew to be a major retail force in western Canada offering product lines such as hardware, electrical, plumbing and paint.In 2003, Country Depot was acquired by TruServ Canada, and in 2012 the stores were converted to TRU Country & Garden. Today, these stores are still locally owned and operated by independent retailers.
Other retail banners include TRU Hardware and TRU Building Centres.
