In the fall of 1995 the name PARCS was born. At that time we were a small, newly formed, family business located on U.S. Route 50 about 15 miles west of Clarksburg, West Virginia. We started out selling Kioti, Zetor tractors, and Husqvarna power equipment. Our first year in business we sold a whopping three new tractors.(*). Also, here is a 2010 picture of our first home, located on US Route 50 in Salem. If you look hard enough, you can see the same stop sign in the back ground. Of course, things have definitely changed for the better! It is all thanks to our loyal customers, friends, and family.

You will also see the “showroom” that was at our US RT 50 location. There we sell Kubota, Land pride, Woods, Husqvarna, Krone Hay Equipment, and oh so much more. Our fantastic customers have driven from hundreds of miles away because we can, and will, save them thousands of dollars. We have people from New York to Florida to Arizona shop with us. We've even had international customers! At PARCS we can usually beat any other dealer’s best price. Many handshakes, smiles and a ton of business has been conducted over that counter!
In the winter of 2009-2010, PARCS expanded and took on a second location off Interstate 68 just 15 minutes East of Morgantown, West Virginia. We were on to the next level! We started in Bruceton Mills, West Virginia in 2007 in a small facility. We thought that it would be adequate space for a year or more. Boy, were we wrong! In fact, we became so busy that we completely outgrew our 2nd location in one month of having the doors open! So in that same time (2009-2010) a new, much larger property was acquired and construction started December 15th, 2009 on what is today Store #2, Bruceton Mills. What a winter, it was snow, snow, snow!
By the end of April 2010 (two months behind schedule) the new facility was finally ready to go. With the help of 20+ employees and volunteers, we moved the entire store in just 2 days. On May 1st, 2010 we officially opened for business at the new location. We introduced Polaris ATV's and side x sides to the PARCS family of products as well.
However, we didn’t stop there! In the fall of 2010, PARCS New Holland, 242 West Main Street in Salem, West Virginia, opened its doors for business! At this location we specialize in all New Holland equipment, from tractors and balers to service and parts. At PARCS we are always here for you, our loyal customers who have helped us with our tremendous growth. We understand that some New Holland customers haven't had a reliable dealer to service and maintain their equipment. This was in part why we opened (what was then) our newest store in downtown Salem, West Virginia. But just like our Bruceton Mills growth, this was a temporary location. In 2011 PARCS New Holland moved to its brand new facility at the intersection of Flinderation Road and U.S. Route 50. We are only 12 minutes West of Clarksburg.
Let me back up just a little. The other picture with all the snow? That’s the Kubota, Polaris, and Husqvarna showroom in Bruceton Mills, West Virginia (Store #2). There we have a fully stocked showroom, lots of accessories, parts, and service. Everywhere you’ll stop at PARCS (all three locations), you can stop in and warm up with a free cup of coffee on those cold days when the snow is flying. We also have a test ride area for all the units we offer. The PARCS family has seen tremendous growth since those first three tractor days. PARCS superstores will continue to build relationships with everyone in the communities we serve. We want to give a big thank you to the support of everyone who has walked on our grounds, come through our doors, and gave us their business. Today, we continue to grow and expand. We couldn’t have made these last 20 years a success without your business then and your continued business and patronage today. Come back and see us soon!
THANK YOU FOR MAKING OUR FAMILY BUSINESS A PART OF YOUR FAMILY!
