About Collier Hardware:


Collier True Value Hardware was established May 1, 1961, when Fort Lauderdale was still very undeveloped. Founded by Roger Simpson and Earl H. Collier, Sr., the store was originally named Simpson Collier Hardware. The store serviced the areas of Ft. Lauderdale, Wilton Manors and Pompano Beach. For over 34 years, Collier has been established in Oakland Park, Florida, and has played a leading role in the hardware and home improvement market in South Florida. At the time it was opened, Simpson Collier Hardware occupied the space next to Floranada Drugs on NE 45th Street. As time passed, it expanded into the drugstore space, growing to what it is today. Earl and Doris Collier bought the store from Roger Simpson in March 1971. Earl Collier’s son Bud and wife Judy worked together with them from the start and took over September 1, 1983. The second generation Collier remodeled the store two times between 1983 and 1993. In the late 80′s a computerized inventory system was added to the business. In 1993, Bud & Judy entered the True Value franchise family. With a unique pool of knowledge and products, they began a new chapter in this family owned & operated business. They began by adding a Screen and Window Department. More inventory and services followed. In July of 1998 the Colliers began a total remodeling of the space with the help of True Value. National name brands and products were added. In May 2002 Chip & Kim Edgar bought the business from Bud and Judy Collier. Upon the acquisition, several more Specialty Departments were created… a Paint Shop, Tool Shop and Marine products… More products & brands were brought in. Access to over 70,000 True Value Products became a reality. This is just the beginning! Collier Hardware, has and will continue to commit a considerable amount of investment in its people, store, products and services to insure customer satisfaction.
