Accompanied by family, friends, staff and members of the Bandera County Chamber of Commerce, local businessman Johnny Boyle celebrated a three-day grand opening of his Lakehills True Value, 8950 FM 1283. The official "chain cutting" - made easier with a pair of bolt cutters wielded by Milam and John Boyle - took place at 10 am, Friday, Oct. 2. Precinct 2 Commissioner Bobby Harris thanked Boyle for saving his taxpayers "an hour's drive to get what they need." As Harris later explained, "Before this store opened, people in this area had to drive to San Antonio or Boerne for items that are carried here. It's not saving money when you have to drive an hour or two. You save money by shopping here and get personalized service, too." Also present for the official opening were Opel Boyle; Holly Boyle; Maynard Leese, True Value retail consultant from San Antonio; David Enmark, True Value regional manager; and Lakehills True Value managers, Julie Wineman, Jerry Vanzant and Terry Luchsinger. Lakehills True Value is open 8 am to 7 pm, Monday through Saturday; and 9 am to 4 pm, Sunday. Telephone is 830-751-4040.
