A large crowd of well-wishers were on hand to mark the opening of the Tygart Valley Supply Store at 100 South Crim Avenue in Belington.

The store’s products and services include hardware, plumbing supplies, animal feed, and seasonal items.

Co-owner Shawntra Raschella has an Associate’s Degree in Dietary Management and a Bachelor’s Degree in Occupational Health and Safety.  The Tygart Valley Supply Store’s website, now under construction, is  www.tygartvalleysupply.com  or they may be called at (304) 823-2700.

Tygart Valley Supply continues a long history of service on the banks of the Tygart Valley River in Belington.  The original Belington Farm Store was established in 1940 and was the major source in town for hardware, feed, home and farm supplies.  The new store will continue to excel in family-oriented customer service as a veteran and family-owned business, offering updated products while modernizing through E-Commerce, say the Raschellas.

The new store is open Mondays through Fridays from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and will close on Saturdays at 2:00 p.m.  Tygart Valley Supply, however, will provide an emergency telephone and text number in case of emergencies.

Small Business Development Center, Tena Crites and Katie Wolpert from Woodlands Development and Lending, Belington Mayor Cheri Sturm, Terri Kittle of Freedom Bank representing the Barbour County Chamber of Commerce, Amber Higgins from the Barbour County Development Authority, Jordyn Boyles, and Hadley and Linda Sponaugle.
