King and Patti Cooper moved their children, Eric, Jeff and Cecley to Taft in 1977 to open Coast to Coast Hardware. The store was located in the thriving Westside Shopping Center and quickly became a source for name brand products and good old fashioned customer service. 1997, the Coopers decided to purchase the defunct Memory Lanes Bowling Alley and convert it into a larger store. Shortly after, Coast to Coast merged with True Value and a new chapter began with more merchandise and selection while still keeping that spirit of a family owned business. Now, Erics son, Rex, is getting more involved with many aspects of the business, especially social media. Dont be surprised if you get a friend request for Instagram or Facebook, hes taking marketing to new levels. Times change, but we're still here and proud to still be serving the West Side!
