About Us

Hi my name is Ron Hale and I run and own Hale’s True Value Hardware with my brother Randy and my father, Tom. Hale’s Hardware opened in 1958 and we have had a hunting & fishing department in our store since the mid 1960’s. I started bow hunting in 1986 and in 1990 I opened the archery pro shop in our store with one goal in mind, to offer high quality archery products and second to none services for all your archery needs. Over the last 26 years, our business has evolved into a full service archery shop that understands the level of customer service the archery & hunting community needs to be successful in the field. We also have a staff on hand that can answer most all your question concerning firearms & ammunition.

Our current staff behind the bow & gun counter is Ron Hale, Tracy Fry, Mark Barrett, Derek Gleason, and Kyle Price. Tracy and I both have over 30 years of bowhunting experience and just over 25 years each of working on archery equipment. Mark has 20 years of bowhunting experience and has been with shop the second longest, next to Tracy, and is very knowledgeable in both archery & firearms. Derek and Kyle have been with the store for number of years and are very experienced in bow sets ups as well as firearms.

Our mission here at Hale’s Hardware is to provide the bowhunter, the target archer, and gun enthusiast with the level of comfort knowing that they will receive quality products, honest service, and attention to details from the time they walk through the doors, until their visit is complete.
