Value has their own Web page along with a Facebook page. Melissa and Dianne encourage people to check it out and “like” it. Dianne said corporate representatives have commended the New Holstein store for having an operation well ahead of many other stores.

Being one of New Holstein’s largest and most prominent retailers, Dianne said the family does not take lightly its role as a good corporate citizen in New Holstein, helping out with causes whenever and wherever it can.

Area residents would shudder to think of the community not having New Holstein True Value, but it is much more likely that more anniversary celebrations will be getting planned in the years and decades ahead.
