Farmingdale, N.Y. — P.C. Richard & Son, the nation's largest independently owned CE and appliance chain, is celebrating its 99th anniversary this year.
To help mark the occasion, The Daily News, the New York metro area newspaper, presented the company with a birthday cake at its corporate headquarters here last week.
More recently, Peter's great-grandson, current president Gregg Richard, was chosen to receive the Anti-Defamation League's (ADL's) American Heritage Award at the annual National Consumer Technology Industry Awards Tribute and Dinner Dance, to be held Nov. 15 at the Grand Hyatt Hotel in Manhattan. Gregg was selected for his “involvement and giving back to the community,” the ADL said.
This TWICE webinar, hosted by senior editor Alan Wolf, will take a look at what may be the hottest CE products at retail that will be sold during the all-important fourth quarter. Top technologies, market strategies and industry trends will be discussed with industry analysts and executives.
