Carr's Closing New York Location

Staff Reports

Carr Hardware is calling it quits in Watervliet, N.Y., done in by long, long road reconstruction.

According to the Times-Union of Albany, N.Y., the Carr Hardware store at 701 19th St. is liquidating its assets and closing by October. A hardware store's been at the location for 50 years; the first 45 as the family-operated DeLollo Hardware and the last five as Carr.

Carr Hardware's Dave Paris told the Times-Union that the two-year road construction on 19th Street had made an untenable cut into the store's profits.

Road work has been tough on the Pittsfield-based hardware chain. The company's president, Barton Raser, said Carr had seen a dramatic decrease in traffic in Watervliet during discussions of yet another road project planned for Great Barrington, where Carr has a store on Main Street.

The small hardware chain also struggled in North Adams at the foot of multi-year bridge project that made it extremely difficult for customers to get in and out. That store has since moved to a larger facility on State Road - a corner lot with alternative access.

The Watervliet store's going out of business sale starts July 1. There are six employees. It was the only New York store in the chain; it also has a store in Lee.
