Carr Hardware operates four stores in the Berkshires of Massachusetts and two in Northern Connecticut. Their store in Pittsfield acts as the main branch. For eighty-nine years we have been serving the needs of our neighbors. Carr is known for sharing their expertise and offering service that is sadly missing at many retail establishments. Carr Hardware services what they sell, offers local home delivery, provides services like lamp repair, shade cutting, pipe threading and cutting, to name a few. Carr Hardware is proud of its' employees and their commitment to the community. The owners, Marshall and Bart Raser, have been life-long community supporters in each of the towns their stores service. Past and present community support includes President of local Rotary Club, recipient of the prestigious Paul Harris Fellow Award, board involvements including Chair of Consumer Advocates, PERC (Pittsfield Economic Redevelopment Commission), and multiple Chambers of Commerce, Downtown Pittsfield Association, Boys & Girls Club and others. The Raser family also supports The Berkshire Humane Society and Volunteer Dogs for The Blind in addition to establishing and sustaining The Vocational & Technical Scholarship Fund. Employees are encouraged to also volunteer in their communities and the Raser family support those efforts including volunteer Fire Departments and coaching local school sports teams. Most recently, Carr Hardware is participating in hurricane relief supplies for the battered southern states. Carr Hardware also supports the local Pittsfield efforts for a much-needed revitalization of a local park for community families to enjoy and states that all proceeds from the Indie award will be donated to the local park project.
