Chris' True Value is a family owned business that has been serving our Tri-Community area for over 27 years. We are located in the town of San Manuel, Arizona about 45 minutes North of Tucson. Our store's owner and namesake Chris Valdes, immigrated to the Tri-community from Chile when he was 14 years old. After high school and a tour in Vietnam, he settled in the area with his wife Phyllis and went to work as the manager of a small retail store called Schaul's Variety. Soon after this, he opted to buy the store from the retiring owners. Chris kept the store name until 1988 when he changed it to Chris' True Value by joining the largest member owned and operated wholesale co-op in the world. Recently Chris' son Kurt has returned to the store and will now be a second-generation store owner.
Family and community are very important to all of us here at Chris' True Value. We look forward to serving your needs for many years to come. Please contact us and let us know what you think of our service, selection and especially our new Web site.
