Swenson Stone Works' Grand Opening in East Wareham, MA: A Celebration of Timeless Beauty

Posted by Amanda Pittsley on Jul 12, 2023 10:00:00 AM


We are thrilled to announce that Swenson Stone Works' Grand Opening at our East Wareham, MA  store was a tremendous success! We celebrated the timeless beauty of granite and natural stone with our valued customers. The event occurred at our new store at 3120 Cranberry Highway on Cape Cod, solidifying its position as the ultimate destination for all hardscape project needs. Let's take a moment to revisit this memorable occasion, featuring pictures, prize winners, and the promotion of our East Wareham location throughout the rest of the season.



Nestled on breathtaking Cape Cod, our East Wareham location is the perfect destination for coastal homeowners and contractors looking for durable materials that can stand up to our harsh New England coastal weather. At Swenson Stone Works, we understand the unique needs of coastal living, which is why our extensive collection of granite and natural stone products is carefully curated to offer both beauty and longevity. Our commitment to coastal curb appeal was further emphasized during the grand opening, where attendees discovered how these materials enhance the charm and low-maintenance allure of their New England coastal homes.



The grand opening event treated visitors to an array of exciting experiences. Guests had the chance to shop from our large variety of in-stock products. This exclusive opportunity allowed homeowners and contractors to transform their outdoor spaces with high-quality products. At the same time, they  enjoyed a special 10% discount on their purchases, which featured clearance items at unbeatable prices. It was a prime occasion to kick-start the projects that elevated the coastal curb appeal of their homes.

Posted by Amanda Pittsley on Jul 13, 2020 9:37:34 AM

It’s a rivalry that goes back to colonial days pitting Pilgrims vs. Puritans, but hundreds of years later, denizens of Boston’s North and South shores remain two distinctly separate areas.

South Hadley native Dan Richard has come full circle. He grew up in this small town, not far from Springfield, and after working at the Medway Swenson Granite Works store in eastern Massachusetts, found his way back home in 2018 to manage the newest retail store.

The Swenson Granite Works South Hadley store, located on Granby Road on the site of an abandoned restaurant that had become “an eyesore,” brings locally-sourced, natural stone products to Western Massachusetts as a heartier — and more beautiful — alternative to wood and concrete products.

Real Estate Market Trends and Ways to Increase the Value of Your Home Through Curb Appeal

Posted by Amanda Pittsley on May 6, 2019 8:00:00 AM

Updated on August 31, 2021

Like a handshake with a new acquaintance, the curb appeal of your home gives a lasting first impression. It can tell people if your home is well cared for, provide a hint into its charm and style, and bring you a higher return on investment when it's time to sell.

South Hadley, Massachusetts realtor Aimee Kelly knows this. She shows homes to potential buyers every day and sees the looks on their faces when they get their first glimpse of a house for sale. Cracked front steps or a mailbox sitting on a rotting wood post can speak volumes and instantly turn buyers away.
