Throughout the past couple months, each week, different Harris locations have been holding Customer Appreciation Weeks! Customer Appreciation Week is a time for us to give a special thanks to those who choose Harris as their trusted supplier for building products and constructiuon supplies. It is also a time to come together and celebrate accomplishments, hard work and bonds that have been made. It’s easy to say you appreciate someone’s business, but here at A.H. Harris, we want to show how much we appreciate your business with us.
We continue to shine our spotlight at our vendor partners, large and small. A.H. Harrisover 50 locations

[Guest Blog Post by Tim Beausoleil of Townsend, MA based "Concrete Concepts & Designs". Enjoy!]
"Earlier this spring, prior to starting my seventeenth year in the concrete business, I took stock of where my company was, where it has been and where it was going. Unlike any great undertaking in life, it's often not the end result but the journey that defines success. As the owner of Concrete Concepts & Designs in Townsend, Massachusetts, there's been few service providers that have helped me grow my business, complete challenging and innovative projects on-time and under budget like the A.H. Harris & Sons, Inc. In fact, Harris has literally changed the landscape of decorative concrete. In a few short years, the designs and products have made their way into people's homes and the indoor spaces of business around the world. The idea that concrete can look and feel like nearly any traditional floor covering with a much wider choice of colors, textures and finishes is the most exciting concept our industry has seen in a long time.
Our graduate & intern programs are an integral part of operations here at Harris. Our goal is to help young, educated and passionate people taking their first steps into rewarding careers within the industry. From day one, our graduates and interns, in both temporary and permanent roles, are a genuine part of our team and treated like family. They gain valuable insights into real world problems and solutions while helping us stay close to our community and new trends. Some of our interns start working for us once they finish school/college. They bring fresh ideas to the table and help a century old business stay ahead of the innovation curve. You’ll be excited to hear it’s these next-generation workers who help drive change around here. But don't just take our word, let’s hear it from them!
When it comes to Harris Pride, it has alot to do with the strong relationships we share with our long-lasting vendors.
