Busy Beaver to open new store in former movie theater

Pittsburgh-based Busy Beaver home improvement retailer plans to open its 25th store in Delmont, Pennsylvania, in May 2021. The new store will occupy a former AMC Theatre site, the company announced.

At 55,000 square feet, it will be one of Busy Beaver’s largest stores among its locations across western Pennsylvania, eastern Ohio, and northern West Virginia. In addition to hardware, the store will feature a lumberyard, pet and farm departments, and a designated contractor service center. It will also feature an expanded outdoor garden center and seasonal department.

Busy Beaver expects to hire approximately 40 to 50 full-time and part-time employees to staff the location.
