P.C. Richard Marks Centennial
East Coast retailer P.C. Richard & Son on Sunday marked its 100th anniversary, and the chain will continue a variety of discounts and specials marking the occasion throughout the year. The chain calls it the "Sale of the Century."
Citing "the demise of a major competitor"- a reference to Circuit City- the retailer is planning six new stores this year, including its first ever in Connecticut and several more throughout New Jersey. The chain also plans a facelift of the showrooms in all of its existing stores.
The first P.C. Richard location debuted in the Bensonhurst section of Brooklyn in October 1909.
