Start the New Year Right!

It’s a New Year, so don’t start off with old repairs! Cleaning house for the holidays is all well and good, but in the rush to get things done in time to entertain we often make surface changes when we really need to get rid of underlying problems. Now that you have shined the floors, painted the walls, and brightened up the kitchen, it is time to get down to the nitty gritty. Here are a few areas of the house you may have fixed partially or temporarily this Christmas, but need a second look.

Deck the Halls with Your Best Value

Tired of the same old ornaments you’ve had since the 1990’s? Rapid True Value has what  you need to make this Christmas as sophisticated as Oprah’s living room and as creative as Martha Stewart’s holiday table.

Use these exciting decorating ideas on your centrepieces, trees and wreaths this Christmas.

A Quick Change

Many of us spend extended periods of time in our homes, and more often than not we become bored with our surroundings. In the wake of Do-it-Yourself television many are guilty of allowing themselves to briefly fantasize that Tye Pennington is giving us an extreme home makeover.

Fashion Night Out - Extreme Home Makeover

Rapid True Value is the place to go on Fashion Night out! This year we are opening our doors to the most exciting shopping experience in Jamaica!

We invite you to take advantage of our incredible sales and our extra special Fashion Night Out promotions on Friday September 10, from 5pm to 10pm in our Lane Plaza and Sovereign Center stores in Kingston, and our Fairview store in Montego Bay.

Destination True Value gets you there

Say goodbye to the older, colder Rapid True Value, and step into a new world of warmth and colour. Introducing Destination True Value: bringing the magic back to your Rapid True Value.

Destination True Value is the theme for our new store upgrades! We are giving a facelift to our main store in Lane Plaza. Our aim is to give you the unique shopping experience you deserve.

Introducing… D-I-Y hurricane shutters in a box

In keeping with our mandate to listen and respond to our customers’ needs, Rapid True Value has expanded our product portfolio to include do-it-yourself hurricane shutters in a box. This product is an easy to install alternative to the traditional ply board used to batten down windows and doors in the event of a storm or hurricane.

Changing a tire

Scenario: Breakfast: check Kids at school: Check and check. You’re making good time having taken every taximan’s shortcut you know, and you’re feeling confident that you can make it to the office before the big meeting  with enough time for a cup of coffee when you notice strange men on the road gesturing toward you.

Just as you start fuming about how these men nowadays are so forward, the driver pulls beside you and winds down his window. You are gearing up to cuss him off for whatever he’s about to say when he yells “lady u back tire sawf sawf, look like u ‘av a flat.”

Getting rid of those pests

In the kitchen, bathroom, bedroom, living room, on the patio, in the yard, pests are everywhere! They stay close to humans because we are their supermarket. They want our food, fresh or discarded. A simple lapse, like dropping a cookie crumb on the floor, calls out the entire ant army in seconds. And these ants don’t play like the Reggae Boyz.  If they turn on you, you better run like crazy.
