Associate Product Fair 2016

Here at Valu Home Centers, customer service is at the heart of our company culture.

Part of what empowers all members of our team to provide the best service possible is advanced knowledge of the products we carry in our stores. What better way for our Associates to learn about the latest and greatest items hitting our shelves than directly from our vendor partners? That’s why each year we gather over 40 vendors, and over 900 members of our Store Teams, to get together at our premiere annual event: the Associate Product Fair!


On March 17th, we celebrated the 26th year of the Associate Product Fair at Salvatore’s Italian Gardens, Saint Paddy’s Day style!

While the Product Fair is a time to learn about new products and the latest DIY techniques, it’s also a time to have fun as a team.


Our team learned about exciting new products that will be arriving in our stores soon.

In addition to year-round training that is available to all members of our team, the Associate Product Fair helps all members of our team be as well equipped as possible to help with your next DIY project. Vendors from quality brands including:

  • Milwaukee – Valu’s newest line of power tool accessories: Nothing But Heavy Duty!
  • Poulan Pro Mowers – New lawn care equipment for Spring, including a push button start mower, and 20V lithium trimmer
  • Shurtech – offering an extensive selection of colored and printed Duck Tape
  • GE Lighting – over 30 new and innovative LED bulbs
  • Flood – new Flood Pro Series exterior wood stains, now offering better protection, backed up by an even better warranty
  • SuperDeck- another new product line at Valu offering high quality, premium exterior wood stains
  • Rust-Oleum – showing off a great new section of craft paints that will be available at Valu this Spring

We acknowledged some of our most driven and dedicated members of our team!

We are so grateful to have Associates and Store Managers who consistently work to better themselves, and continue to grow and thrive throughout their Valu Home Centers career. At the Associate Product Fair, we reward members of our team for accomplishments including, but not limited to: Associate of the Year, Years of Service, Training Classes Completed, and the highly coveted Founders Memorial Award. Here are some photos of the happy Founders Memorial Award winners Shani Jones, Fred Haven, and Peter Wik :
