Soldotna trustworthy celebrates 10 years at new store

Ten years ago Paul Miller and his family moved their popular Soldotna Trustworthy Hardware & Fishing to a brand new location and building on the Sterling Hwy in Soldotna. Thousands lined up on a cool June morning for the official door opening because the first 3,000 customers received a silver dollar for attending. Reminiscent of that grand opening a decade ago folks anticipate the annual anniversary sale and line up for great deals and great hot dogs at family-owned local hardware store. Though there were no silver dollars given away this year, there were between three and five thousand hot dogs given to the community in celebration of the longevity of this local business according to Brian Miller. “This time of year is a ‘thank you to the community!’ sale,” Brian told the Dispatch in an interview. “Prices are spot on and we have a lot of merchandise for everyone and that seems to be make folks happy during this anniversary week,” said Miller.

Through the prosperous as well as the difficult economic times on the Kenai, Soldotna Trustworthy has held true to its name.When asked the secret to this success, Miller credited his crew, “They are probably some of the best people that we’ve had. Some of them have been with us for over 17 years and that’s a testament to their support of our store and taking care of our customers and I think the community appreciates that care as well,” he said. In addition to providing reliable service, products and prices, Soldotna Hardware & Fishing also sponsors many athletic programs for our community’s youth. So as the salmon get ready run, the relatives ready to arrive and those summer projects get done under the midnight sun, know that when you get what you need for work or fun, at Soldotna Trustworthy Hardware & Fishing your dollars are not only supporting a great business, but they are also supporting this great community.
