P.C. Richard Opening 5th Connecticut Store


Manchester, Conn. - P.C. Richard & Son will open its fifth Connecticut store on Wednesday and is planning two more locations in the Nutmeg State.

The Long Island-based CE and majap chain will soft-open a former Circuit City storefront here this week, followed by a grand opening on Aug. 19, according to a report in the Journal Inquirer, a local newspaper.

The family-held business opened its first Connecticut location last year in Norwalk, and has since added stores in Milford, North Haven and Danbury.

A sixth store will open in Enfield -- hometown of former New England chain Bernie's -- this November, and the company is also planning a seventh Connecticut store in Newington.

The Manchester and Enfield stores will be staffed by former Circuit City and Bernie's employees, the newspaper reported.

 P.C. Richard president Gregg Richard previously told TWICE that the chain was also scouting locations for a regional distribution center, and could eventually extend its New England footprint to Rhode Island and Massachusetts.

Further south, the 100-year-old dealer opened its first Philadelphia store in May, one of two planned locations there, and is also eyeing the Delaware market, Richard had said.
