WESCO to close three branches in Maine

WESCO will close three of its Maine branches at the end of the month, according to the Bangor Daily News.

Standard Electric, owned by WESCO International, will close stores in Rockland, Ellsworth and Waterville on Nov. 30, according to Paul Perry, manager of the Maine businesses. The stores in Bangor and Portland will remain open.

The Rockland location has six employees while Ellsworth and Waterville each have five workers.

“In Maine, we work with a lot with residential and small commercial businesses. The residential market has been struggling for the past few years,” Perry said.

WESCO International purchased the Standard Electric stores in 1996.
