Headquartered in Long Island, New York, P.C. Richard & Son is the largest family owned and operated appliance, TV, computer and mattress retailer in America.
The company was established in 1909 when Dutch immigrant Peter Christian Richard (P.C.) opened a hardware store in Bensonhurst, Brooklyn. That same year, his son Alfred J. Richard (A.J.) was born. A.J. grew up in the business, and when he was 6 years old started assisting his father around the store. In 1924, A.J. decided to expand the hardware store's inventory to include the electric iron; marking the beginning of the appliance business for P.C. Richard & Son.
By the 1930s, the store's inventory increased even more to include toasters, ranges, washers, refrigerators, and radios. To ensure customers would always be satisfied, A.J. established the P.C. Richard & Son Service Department to service and repair what they sold.
The Company is now operated by the fourth and fifth generations of the Richard family, has 66 Superstores, two Electronics Service Centers, bridges 2 centuries, and still embraces the principles it was built on: Honesty, Integrity and Reliability.
