In December of 2012, the Clinton store moved into a new

In 2015, Pat’s Home Center of Central, constructed a brand new building down the road from its original location.
It has been 31 years since the journey for Pat’s Home Center began. Now each location has managers and assistant managers that run the everyday operations, though it is still overseen by Pat and his sons. They are proud to be family owned while supporting the communities they love.
