Our knowledgeable and customer-friendly staff will deliver an outstanding store experience for residents and businesses in the Calcutta/East Liverpool, Ohio area. At Busy Beaver, we take the time to listen and ask questions, so we can offer expert assistance and provide the best solutions for our customers,” said Joe Kallen, chief executive officer, Busy Beaver.

The Calcutta store is Busy Beaver’s fourth location in Ohio, with other stores in Ashtabula, Canton, and Salem. The hardware retailer also operates four stores in West Virginia and 15 stores across Western Pennsylvania, totaling 23 stores across the tri-state area. In addition to the recent opening of Elkins, WV and its upcoming Calcutta, OH., opening, Busy Beaver is expanding its footprint into central Pennsylvania with openings planned for Chambersburg, PA., and Red Lion, PA., in the fall of this year.
