Stanley’s True Value
True Value is one of the worlds biggest, member owned cooperatives who are in 58 countries and over 4000 retail locations according to true Value’s website. While I was in Manayunk Pennsylvania and saw the American Flag proudly flying in front of the Stanley’s True Value. I had to stop and take a picture. Since I stopped to take a picture I had time to go inside and look around. I was approached by an employee with a smile while I was in the store looking around. As I shopped around and saw all the items they sold I could not stopped thinking about how us Americans are doers. True Value and other home improvement centers sell things to customers so they can get things done.
