Harry is beginning his 56th year at Adler’s! He started working here when he was 10 years old, and received a Kennedy half-dollar each week.

As a staunch Red Sox fan, a customer once brought him some Fenway dirt from their winning World Series game.

Harry has led Adler’s successful reinventions over the years; and as an integral part of the community, Harry enjoys being a steward of his family’s legacy.

As a founder of C2 Paints, Harry and paint go hand-in-hand, His favorite color (today) is C2 Paint in Churchill.


Marc began working at his family’s hardware store at an early age, then returned in 1986, after years of working as an accountant in New York City. He came back for family and community.

Working in the hardware side of Adler’s, Marc advises, “Keep up with the little things in your home and you’ll never need a hobby.”

He enjoys meeting, working with and getting to help thousands of people each week.

Marc’s favorite two parts of the store include the employees and the decorative hardware center.

Her first job was NOT at Adler’s, but at the Bargain Center in Quincy, MA, measuring and cutting fabric. Janice’s favorite part of Adler’s is the colorful wall of paint swatches. Her favorite color is Pleiades - a beautiful blue/purple starry-night color.
