Business Spotlight: Driscoll's Home Center
TRUE FAMILY EFFORT at Driscoll’s Home Center
Driscoll's Home Center, a locally owned and operated hardware & home center in West Pittston, PA, has provided more than just hardware to Greater Pittston since early December of 2015! Owners Dennis and Elizabeth Driscoll and the DHC staff work to provide quality goods and services for daily and seasonal purposes to surrounding communities, while ensuring convenience and high value. They are always available to answer customer inquiries, suggest best products, and offer any needed support.
Driscoll’s Home Center is in the former CVS building on the corner of Boston Avenue and Fourth Street which had been vacant since the mid-2000s. This building had Dennis’s and Elizabeth’s interest since moving to NEPA in 2006. The pair often discussed what a great location it would be for a business. After much research into several different business ventures, Dennis decided to follow his passion and open a home improvement store because you don’t want to dive into a business unless it’s your passion and Dennis has been working home improvement jobs since he was a kid. Driscoll’s is focused on improving the homes within the Greater Pittston community and there is definitely excitement in the area to have a home improvement store so close to home!
Driscoll’s sells hardware, tools, plumbing supplies and lawn equipment as well as seasonal items such as heaters, snow blowers, garden provisions and pool supplies. They feature Valspar Paint and offer smaller specialty items like children’s toys, a “dollar aisle”, household cleaning supplies and housewares items like toaster ovens and coffee makers. They strive to stay competitive with other home improvement centers near and far and satisfy customers with fair pricing and exceptional service.
A true family business, the family started working at the store in the summer of 2015 and it’s truly been a family effort. Each of the couple’s four children has helped out, as well as Dennis’ brother, Danny, whom had been dubbed the “honorary CEO” of the business!
