Busy Beaver Building Centers Opens the Doors to Their Newest Store in Mt. Pleasant, PA

General News

Pittsburgh-based Busy Beaver has been a Mt. Pleasant mainstay for hardware and home improvement for the past 25 years. On August 13, 2021, they opened the doors to a (much) bigger, brighter, and better-stocked store.

“I’m looking forward to an exciting opportunity at our new Mt. Pleasant location,” says Mark Bertok, VP of Operations. “The same knowledgeable and friendly staff with many great new product assortments and selections. This store is a true destination for the Mt. Pleasant area.”

At 55,000 square feet, the store is one of Busy Beaver’s largest among its 24 locations across Pennsylvania, Ohio, and West Virginia. With twice the square footage of their previous location, all departments have gained some extra space. Amongst the most dramatically expanded are Lumber, Grilling, Power Tools, Crafts, and Carhartt apparel.

A grand opening event on Saturday, September 18th, will officially welcome the Mt. Pleasant community to the new store with family-friendly activities including fun events for kids, free food, caramel apple bar, and performances by the Southmoreland High School marching band. All events will be conducted under CDC COVID compliant guidelines.

The first 150 customers will receive a $50 Busy Beaver gift card as Busy Beaver’s way of saying thank you for celebrating the grand opening with them. Attendees will also be able to make a donation to Make-a-Wish, Busy Beaver’s favorite charity, for a chance to win a free grill. Get all the latest event details at

Along with the bigger, better Busy Beaver comes more great news for Mt. Pleasant-area locals with a passion for home improvement, helping neighbors, and improving their community – the new location is still hiring for full- and part-time positions. Busy Beaver is also hiring for their New Delmont Store Location (opening January 2022). Learn more on their website at
