Join the Chamber as Mario’s Home Center hosts a Business After Hours on Thursday, March 7.  They are located on Route 9 in Valatie.  The event will run from 5:00 to 7:00 pm.  Come and check out their new Kitchen and Bath area.

When Mario Palleschi opened his hardware store on Main Street in Valatie in 1963, the golden rule of the family and staff was to Serve the customer well, which they still stand by to this day.

Mario’s offers anything from paint, to plumbing, electrical supplies to excavating equipment.  Keeping with our community oriented mindset, Mario’s has opened a new 20,000 foot warehouse on the southern tip of Valatie at the 9H overpass, to provide lumber and building supplies.

Mario’s is contractor-friendly, but you need not be a local builder to get millwork and find sure, convenient advice on products as you begin that self-help project.  Ultimately, isn’t service just sound advice, smart information you can use whether grouting tile, caulking a tub, installing lighting, or building a deck?  Their staff is always there to help.

Come and check out their new Kitchen and Bath area on March 7 at the Business After Hours’ that also offers excellent networking opportunities for area business people.  All members of the business community are invited to attend this business event.  Hors d’oeuvres and beverages will be offered during the After Hours.  There is no cost to attend, but guests are encouraged to contact the Chamber at (518) 828-4417 if they plan to attend.
