US-based home improvement retailer Busy Beaver is planning to open five new stores in the tri-state region by next year.
In Pennsylvania, the company will open its store in Grove City in March next year, while the Greenville store will be opened in May.
The company will announce details of other store locations by the first quarter of next year.
Busy Beaver chief executive officer Joe Kallen said: “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.
“We’re looking to hire enthusiastic employees who will be committed to providing the legendary customer service we emphasise 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.”
With a 50,000ft² area, the Grove City location is said to be 35,000ft² larger in comparison to its other 18 stores.
Located at 11 Pine Grove Square, Grove City, the new Grove City store will feature an expanded seasonal department, an indoor lumber yard, a new farm and ranch department, and a designated contractor service centre.
The Grove City store will create 20 full-time jobs, and between ten and 15 part-time positions in the region.
