Happening now: 60th birthday party at Junction True Value

It’s the deal of the century – the 20th century – if you buy a 60-cent hot-dog-and-drink deal from the West Seattle Lions Club outside Junction True Value (WSB sponsor) during the store’s 60th-anniversary celebration today. It opened – in a different Junction location, as noted in our preview story on Thursday – on August 10th, 1953, and has remained an independent family-owned business ever since; owner Bruce Davis is the third generation of ownership, and there’s fourth-generation representation on staff, including his daughter Ahna Davis. Today’s festivities include hourly drawings – enter near the front door, where you’ll find team members in their special anniversary T-shirt:

Back outside, free balloon animals:

And free face-painting – here, the anniversary cupcake is modeled:

The hot-dog-and-drink deal is on until 3; the rest of the party continues throughout the day – Junction True Value is open until 7 pm tonight – and tomorrow (open 9 am-6 pm), too.

    Happy birthday to a great store! I love shopping at True Value – cheerful, helpful staff and a small-town feeling. We’re lucky the Junction hasn’t been “reinvented” – at least not yet. I shop the vendors there to help make sure that doesn’t happen.

    The go-to-place in West Seattle.
