Hundreds Come out to Celebrate the Grand Opening of Wallauer Paint, Hardware & Design in Mamaroneck
More than 300 area residents came out to celebrate the grand opening of the new Wallauer Paint, Hardware & Design location at 960 Mamaroneck Avenue in Mamaroneck. In addition, a veritable “who’s who” of elected officials and local dignitaries were also on hand to welcome Wallauer including Tom Murphy Village Mayor, Jaine Elkind Eney Town Supervisor, Legislator Catherine Parker, Assemblyman Steve Otis, and Westchester County Executive George Lattimer. Pediatric cancer survivor Gigi Ambrosio spoke eloquently about the support that is provided to children and their families by the Pediatric Cancer Foundation also based in Mamaroneck, which will be the recipient of funds raised all month long at all 16 Wallauer locations.
“It is our honor to help support the Pediatric Cancer Foundation during the month of September. This cause is one that is very close to my heart and one that hits home when you hear Gigi speak about her experience and the experiences of other families,” stated Ed Klein, CEO of Wallauer. Wallauer will match donations made at the register at every Wallauer store across Rockland, Westchester, and Putnam Counties. “We’re hoping this effort will raise more than $10,000 for PCF.”
“We are grateful to Wallauer for their support of PCF. This is a significant initiative and one that will help hundreds of families,” stated Pamela Strauss Peligri, President of the Pediatric Cancer Foundation.
The new Wallauer location caters to both residential customers and commercial contractors, offering a wide array of premium interior and exterior Benjamin Moore paint and stains, an impressive selection of marine equipment and supplies, as well as top-quality Ace Hardware products and brands such as Yeti, Weber, and Milwaukee. Weekend DIYers and experienced professionals, as well as architects and designers, will find everything they need for home improvement projects at the 6,000-square-foot location. “Perhaps the best thing we offer here is our customer support,” states Ethan Mason, Director of Retail Operations. “Our customer service is second to none,” he added.
The grand opening took place on Saturday, September 9th. The store’s operating hours are Monday to Friday: 7 am to 6 pm, Saturday: 7 am to 5 pm, Sunday: 9 am to 4 pm.
