Milford, Conn. - P.C. Richard & Son will formally open
two more locations in Connecticut next week, bringing its store count in the
Nutmeg State to three.
The new stores are located in a former Linens 'n Things in
Milford and a former Circuit City in North Haven. They join the retailer's
first Connecticut store, which opened last year in Norwalk.
A fourth P.C. Richard store is scheduled to open soon in
Danbury, and company president Gregg Richard previously told TWICE that the
company could have as many as six Connecticut locations by year's end.
Richard said the family-held CE and majaps chain was also
scouting locations for a regional distribution center and may eventually extend
its New England footprint to Rhode Island and Massachusetts.
Further south, the dealer is preparing to open its first two
stores in the Philadelphia area, is eyeing Delaware, and is adding two new
locations in New Jersey, for a total of seven to 10 store openings this year.
