Making an acquisition the best-case scenario
In 2016, Taylor’s Do it Center in Virginia Beach, Virginia brought Pleasants Hardware into the Do it Best family. Brothers Joe and Russ Taylor acquired seven Pleasants Hardware stores in the Richmond area. The leadership team preserved the Pleasants brand and built a great team for the successful transition. Four years later, the merger is going well and Pleasants continues to prove its strength and resilience.
