The Origin of Our Home Town Home Furnishings Store
In 1972, Ron Pucci and his father, Carl, worked side-by-side in their small, family-owned business, The West Hill Delicatessen. This father-son duo kept themselves busy, working a shift at the deli before heading to the local steel plant to put in some hours. The building they owned at the corner of Chestnut and Main Street in Fredonia, NY had apartments above it. A time came when these apartments were in need of new flooring. Ron, always the entrepreneur, was looking for a way to buy it wholesale. To do so Ron found that with the business certificate for the delicatessen he could buy carpet direct.
On his way to the Buffalo Food Market to pick up fresh fruits and vegetables for the deli, Ron stopped at a local carpet and flooring distributor. Not only did he walk out with the rolls of carpet, but samples as well. In Ron's haste to unload the flooring for the apartments, he left the samples at the delicatessen counter. Over the next few days, customers came in with many questions about the carpet samples. Throughout the week, he sold more carpet than lunchmeat! Ron took a chance in the fall of 1972, quitting his job at the steel plant and opening Pucci's World of Carpet.
Soon after, Ron's wife, Mickey, left her teaching job to join the business. With Mickey’s help, "Pucci's World of Carpet" expanded into "Pucci’s Carpet & Furniture." Mickey’s decorative touch allowed the business grow at that location for the next ten years. At that point, the couple decided to relocate to their current location, 112 West Main Street in Fredonia. They renovated an old warehouse and turned it into a showroom.
Over the years, Pucci’s has employed many family and community members including Ron and Mickey’s two children (Katie and Michael), their son in law (Todd Schaefer), and several of their grandchildren.
"Our goal has always been to offer the best available products at the best possible prices to the Dunkirk/Fredonia community and its surrounding areas.”
