The home improvement retailer officially announced plans to open at the Hollywood Squares shopping plaza off Route 22 with a target date of next May . At 55,000 square feet, it will be one of the chain’s largest stores among its locations throughout Western Pennsylvania, eastern Ohio and northern West Virginia.
“The Delmont (Salem) location is a great fit for us in terms of demographics and geography,” CEO Joe Kallen said. “It’s a high-visibility location and easily accessible on the Route 22 corridor. The building itself is an ideal fit for us, since there aren’t too many big-box structures in the area.”
The company plans to hire between 40 and 50 full- and part-time employees, Kallen said. Plans for the store include a lumber yard, pet and farm departments, a designated contractor service center and an expanded outdoor garden center.
Busy Beaver was founded in 1962 with lumber yards in Verona, Clairton and Carnegie. Today, the company operates 24 stores with more than 550 employees.
