PITTSBURGH — Pittsburgh-based Busy Beaver plans to open five new home improvement centers throughout the tri-state region in 2018. Its Grove City, Penn. location is set to open in March and a Greenville, Penn. store will open in May. Additional locations will be announced the first quarter in 2018.
At 50,000 square feet, the Grove City location will be larger than the 35,000-square foot average of its other 18 stores. The home improvement center will feature an expanded seasonal department, an indoor lumber yard, a new farm and ranch department, and a designated contractor service center.
The Grove City store will hire approximately 20 full-time and 10 to 15 part-time employees.
“We’re excited about our continued expansion plans for Busy Beaver during the next year across the entire region. Starting with Grove City, we’ll be pleased to offer local residents and businesses a customer-friendly store experience that addresses the needs of DIYers and supports local contractors,” said Joe Kallen, CEO of Busy Beaver. “We’re looking to hire enthusiastic employees who will be committed to providing the legendary customer service we emphasize across all our locations. As with all our stores, we want customers served by our new locations to know they can count on finding what they need, and getting friendly, expert help, every time they visit.”
