True Value/Home & Garden Showplace Issues Statement, Stands Ready to Serve Retailers Affected by Commerce Supplier Challenges

Tuesday, December 18, 2012
Chicago - True Value, parent company of Home & Garden Showplace, has issued a memo stating that it stands ready to serve retailers that currently buy through Commerce Corporation in the face of challenges Commerce is reportedly experiencing with its suppliers. According to the release, The Scotts Company notified True Value that they will no longer supply product to Commerce. In turn, True Value offers this advice to retailers: "If you are a current Commerce customer, immediate action is required to switch your drop ship billing. If you do not change your billing, you will likely not receive your order." True Value says it is committed to high service levels on core brands that include Scotts, Bonide, Bayer, Espoma as well as others.
