Dalton Do It Center is a family owned store located in Dalton, PA, just north of Scranton. Owned by Doug and Scott LaCoe, the store initially opened as a Do It Center in 1989.
The building the store is in has plenty of history itself: it was
originally a power generation plant for the Northern Electric Street
Railway. In 1994, Doug was asked by the
owner at that time to come work as his manager, and he accepted. One year later, he asked his son Scott, who
was 17 at the time, to work at the store as well. In 2000, Doug purchased the business, and father and son have run the business since then.
