- Alex Pitsironis
In 1962, the business added Benjamin Moore Paint products to its lineup. Albino also brought his son John into the operation, and with his help, the company expanded by acquiring a vacant 6,000 square foot property. DaCorta Hardware became a destination for not only hardware and paint but also drywall, lumber, masonry, roofing and building materials.
Now, DaCorta Hardware is managed by family friend Alex Pitsironis, who has been running the operation since 2014. But even with a successful business, the company has experienced some setbacks in recent years. During the height of the COVID-19 pandemic and the months that have followed, Pitsironis had to find creative ways to keep customers happy and get them the items they needed due to shortages in most categories across the home improvement industry.
The product shortages haven’t stopped the store from continuing to thrive. Currently, DaCorta Hardware works primarily with pros..
“Our shoppers are mostly professionals, so we make sure to fit our hours of operation around them,” Pitsironis says “We open at 6:30 a.m., to allow time for our customers to come in and get what they need before heading to a job site.”
Bringing excellent customer service from their team of five has been at the forefront of DaCorta Hardware, and Pitsironis is proud to keep that tradition going. Things won’t be slowing down any time soon.
