Townsquared Local Leaders
Hardware Store Owner
Beacon Paint and Hardware in the Upper West Side of Manhattan has been family-owned and operated since 1971. Beacon is the go to hardware store for locals. Owners, Steve and sibling Bruce Stark are locals themselves and active community members. When they’re not running the store, they’re often organizing and contributing to local community events.
Beyond offering a wide range of paints and hardware supplies, Beacon also offers a range of eco-friendly services to help the community dispose of used paints and supplies.
A true ‘Beacon’ in every sense of the word, Beacon Paint and Hardware is as local as local gets with the kind of customer service and community stewardship that continues to drive their success.
We collaborate with local leaders from our small business communities to draw on their knowledge, tools, and resources. Whether it’s partnering with us to present information at a Townsquared event, hosting a webinar, posting helpful advice, or chiming in on an active conversation with other small business owners on our platform, Local Leaders play a key role in helping all small businesses succeed.
