Sincerely, Bob Becker R&C Becker Construction Park Street, Tupper Lake 359-3932 (561) 847-6035 To the Aubuchon Hardware Company: Thank you for the opportunity to build Tupper Lake’s new Aubuchon Store...the largest store of its kind in the company’s fleet of over 100 stores around the northeast. Your company’s substantial investment in this community is a strong sign that better days are ahead for Tupper Lake. BELLEVILLE & ASSOCIATES 42 Park Street, Tupper Lake- 359-3333 We salute the Aubuchon Hardware Company for investing in our community and providing us with a brand new and modern store. Best of Luck from all of us at Boulevard Wine & Spirits Save-A-Lot Plaza, Tupper Lake 359-8233 Open Mon.-Sat. 9 a.m. - 9 p.m. Thank you Aubuchon Hardware and best of luck to you! Paul Maroun County Legislator & Mayor of Tupper Lake Thank you Aubuchon Hardware for your continued commitment to Tupper Lake! Adirondack Regional Federal Credit Union 280 Park St., Tupper Lake, NY 12986 (518) 359-2921 Congratulations Aubuchon Hardware on your Grand Opening! Aubuchon Hardware’s largest store in its company opens on Lake Street the store is a lawn and no parking. During planning board meetings here before construction started last year, Aubuchon leaders were sensitive to the board members’ concerns about parking spaces in front that would see patrons backing out into traffic. Accordingly, all parking is at the side of the store, and depending upon where patrons park, they use either the two upper front entrances accessed by sidewalks or the lower one. There is no direct access to Lake Street from the front entrances by design. Protruding from the front entrance and its canopy area is a pad of concrete, surrounded by lawn, for the display of some of the store’s outdoor equipment. Mr. Sauve, who has worked for the company for 26 years- twice here for a total of 17 years and nine as the store manager in Canton- explained that the new store has many new products and many new departments that there wasn’t room for in the former location. The extra space has permitted the company to introduce some products it has never sold before. The store features a vastly expanded house ware department- carrying everything from pots and pans to utensils to ceramic cookware and microwave and toaster ovens. The new store boasts four complete aisles of hunting and fishing products. It’s the envy of any fully-stocked sporting goods store. There have been expansions too in the traditional hardware store stock- like the Midwest nuts and bolts area. The store’s paint section is more than twice the size of the old store’s- anchored by the company’s Benjamin Moore line. The paint department features “a decision area,” according to Mr. Sauve, a counter with lights above where people can view colors under four different types of lighting to mirror the type of lighting in a particular home or room, in order to pinpoint the exact shade the homeowner is looking for. Paint Specialist Joe Williams has been joined there by Ron Philpott. The store features a complete line of Carhartt outdoor clothing. There’s also a new aisle devoted entirely to socks and underwear- something absent in Tupper Lake in recent years. Walking through the dozens of displays in the new store you’ll see wagons and bikes for kids, bike supplies, a marine section, a complete area for barbecues and grills of various types, various types of domestic hot water heaters, a new lighting fixtures area, bathroom fixtures, lumber and roofing supplies, home insulation and lumber supplies. The local hardware store now sells storm doors. One aisle is devoted entirely to shelving and closet organizers. The electric department now includes electric panels and generator transfer boxes. Over in the four aisles of house ware products you can find supplies to put up pickles and various preserve products. There’s even various kinds of laundry soap for sale. Entering from the basement level, homeowners will find a brand new line of Stihl outdoor tools and machinery, that compliment the Husqvarna products the store here has always sold. A good share of the lower floor is devoted to an expanded rental area where customers can rent everything from a generator to a miter saw to a jack hammer. Many types of Makita and Bostich power tools have been added to the stores rental and tool line-up, which has featured Black Continued from page 1 A large attractive staircase connects the two floors of shopping at Aubuchon Hardware.

To the west side of the store is the expansive parking area- where there’s room for over three dozen vehicles and plenty of space for the outdoor storeage of landscaping materials and decorative stones. When the real estate arm of the company purchased the site, it also purchased the Greg Trombley house next door, which affords an adjacent back yard for more outdoor storage of products. The multi-stall storage garage which was not damaged by the fire is now used by the store operators as a dry place to keep wood pellets. In addition to the many aisles of products and displays, the store features a spacious break room for employees, complete with lockers. There are large storage areas on each floor- connected by a service elevator. In addition to Mr. Sauve as manager the store now employs Assistant Manager Ted Cobb, as well as Joe Williams, Gary Milliser, Robert Fox, Andrew Parks, Martin Hughes, Darlene Durbin, Nelson Soucy, Matthew Beeman, Matt Bean, Brandon Duchaine, Dorie Sirois, Bruce Anrig, Hope Whelan, Ron Philpott, Timothy Allen, Atreau Jewell, Corey Burnett and David Johnson. The company looked to local contractors to build its new store, wherever it could. The store was built by Bob Becker’s R &C Becker Construction of Tupper Lake. Mr. Becker’s skilled carpenters went to work inside the poured first floor foundation on a frigid day in late January and worked through one of the coldest winters in recent years constructing the new show place. They began with the interior walls of the basement floor. Continued on page 6
