Harry and Chris Gil first opened Harry’s True Value Hardware store in West Allis in February of 1985. Harry and Chris purchased the business from Tim O’Brian in 1985. In 2000, the Gil family moved the hardware store to Franklin in its current location on 76th and Rawson. In 2011 we joined the Ace family and haven’t looked back.
In January of 2016 the Gil family purchased the South Milwaukee location for Dave Micale and his wife Carol. We are thrilled to carry on our family-owned tradition at our South Milwaukee store, a local family-owned business since 1995.
