A Chat with Beacon Paint & Hardware
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
Beacon is more than just another hardware store. Dedicated to the neighborhood, customer service is our first priority. We love giving balloons to kids and treats to dogs. We got top grades from the Zagat Shopping Guide, and have won numerous awards!
Of the products you sell, which are your favorites?
Benjamin Moore Paints; paint sundries; small and large hardware items; hand and power tools; light bulbs; electrical supplies; building materials; heaters; snow melt; fans; air conditioners; cleaning supplies; and more! We rent tools, and we cut keys and repair lamps.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
Beacon was founded around 1900. It started as Beacon Paint & Varnish Co., later Beacon Paint & Wallpaper, and later to its current name. The store originally was on the West side of Amsterdam Avenue. Around 1940, Beacon relocated to its present location, which used to be home of an A&P supermarket.
What do you love most about your job?
Interacting with our regulars and making new friends. Being able to help people, especially when true customer service is so lacking these days, is very rewarding.
