Story From A Customer

loyal customer wearing trilling shirt on vacation

This past spring, my husband and I stopped in your store while visiting family in Sheboygan. He was wearing his “I like romantic walks through hardware stores” t-shirt at the time, and we’re fairly certain it was you who gifted him with a Trilling Hardware shirt – which only made our visit to your store even more enjoyable than it already was, because we LOVE a good hardware store!

We talk about it whenever he wears his Trilling t-shirt (we’re in Washington State, which wasn’t formed until after your store opened!), and I came across this photo of him wearing the shirt when we stopped at Yellowstone on our way back west. We look forward to our next visit, and just wanted to say thank you again for having a great store and staff.

Watch AROUND THE CORNER WITH JOHN MCGIVERN in Sheboygan as he talks about various things including the oldest hardware store in Wisconsin.


The Trilling True Value Hardware Story

In 1850, August Trilling, a first generation German immigrant opened a General Store on 8th and Pennsylvania Ave. At that time all stores were general stores supplying customers with hardware, turpentine and even whiskey.

In the late 1890’s, August moved the store to Michigan Avenue and in 1911 Trilling Hardware moved to it’s now present location of 9th and Michigan Avenue. Over the years this location has seen many changes from removing the display windows on the northeast corner, to adding the garden center in late 1995.

From August Trilling, Trilling Hardware has been handed down to the Trilling sons. In 1995, Hugo Trilling, the Great Grandson of August sold Trilling Hardware to Ervin Martens, who at the time of purchase owned another hardware store in Milwaukee. Ervin has remained the owner of Trilling Hardware and has expanded his ownership to two other True Value stores with one in Reedsburg and one in Waupun. Today all four stores work together in purchasing all the right products for our customers.

Selection is the key that has kept Trilling True Value around for over 170 years, where else can you go to buy just one nut or bolt when you need it or that one of kind plumbing part for an older faucet.

Great Customer Service, Competitive Prices and Convenience is what has kept customers coming back.
