TRU Hardware, a new Canadian brand, built on a foundation, long supported by independent retailers.

This exciting new banner is serviced through TRUSERV CANADA, which traces its roots in Canada back to the founding of Macleods in western Canada by Roland Macleod.

From it's beginnings in 1916, the company grew from a mail order business to retail stores owned and operated by the retailer. 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 1992, Macleod's became True Value* stores across Canada, and in 2011 converted to TRU Hardware and TRU Building Centres. These stores are still locally owned and operated by independent retailers. They are still true to their roots, offering everything that their customer's need, when they need it.


TRU Hardware 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 building of a new recreational centre to raising funds for local and national charities, TRU Hardware retailers are committed to seeing their community become a better place to live.

TruServ Canada is 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.
