Grand Re-Opening Celebration

GR Mitchell Grand Reopning


We’re really sad to make this decision, but we feel we’ve been forced to postpone our grand reopening celebration. To ensure that this event is the best that it can be for our customers, we’ll be choosing new dates once it becomes a bit more clear as to when will be a better time to host this event. Thank you for your understanding and we deeply apologize for the change.

Grand Re-Opening Postponed

We’re sure you’ve noticed some changes happening at GR Mitchell. As we near the completion of our updates we want to thank you for your patience, support, and excitement for our growth. And what better way to say thank you than with an event that opens our doors to the community to celebrate our grand re-opening with us!


So, What Have We Been Up To?

  • Construction of our 10,000 sq ft building that allowed for new office space, 2 meeting/conference rooms, a dedicated design office, and space for our showroom to grow
  • Complete redesign of our kitchen and bath showroom space that includes beautiful cabinetry and countertops from Yorktowne, Wolf, Classic Rock, Cambria, and more
  • Creation of new window and door display areas that will help you pick the perfect products whether you’re working with a contractor or buying direct
  • With our office space moving into our addition, our True Value retail store had the opportunity to expand into that 5,000 sq ft space! More square footage and a redesigned layout means way more products that are easier to find.

What Kind Of Celebration Is This?

Our doors open at 7 am like any other Saturday, but the celebration really kicks off at 10 am with a live radio broadcast with Casey Allyn from I105!  

With a focus on creating family-friendly fun we’ll have yard games and a face painter here to keep your young ones entertained, but there’s going to be a lot here for the adults in the family, too.

We’re offering our best prices of the year on various items through our store (as seen in our True Value flyer) plus you’ll have a chance to learn from the pros and ask questions about your next project: True Value paint experts will be here to show proper wood-staining techniques. Stihl will be here to guide you on your next landscaping project. Want to grow organic? Dr Earth will be here to share his products and answer your gardening questions. You’ll also see vendors from the construction space, like Rockwool, demonstrating their products and experts from Diablo ready to answer questions.

Curious about the new construction? Feel free to explore our new showroom spaces and tour through our new addition. Once you’re done checking out our addition and perusing the new store layout, pick-up some new hardware items at our new checkout area and head outside to spin our prize wheel for a chance to win GR Mitchell swag, food truck discount vouchers, and coupons for GR Mitchell.
