About GR Mitchell

For five decades, GR Mitchell has been serving the residents and businesses of Central PA. The hardware store in Refton that George R. Mitchell bought in 1969 now serves the greater part of Pennsylvania, Delaware, and Maryland. As the company grew, we still maintained our commitment to the community and family values that started over 50 years ago. Our True Value Home Center, Cabinetry Design Showroom, Lumberyard, and Building Materials Company are each focused on bringing you the right products for your job at a price and quality that beat expectations.

Community Focus:

We serve multiple school districts and communities. We stay involved with Lampeter-Strasburg, Penn Manor, Lancaster, Solanco, and Conestoga Valley schools, and we work with various organizations from Lancaster to Drumore, Conestoga to Paradise. We are pleased to be a part of each community and Lancaster County as a whole.
