Pitt Petri were importers for nearly 80 years and is associated with the glory-days of high-end retail on Buffalo’s Delaware Avenue.  Pitt Petri first opened on Allen Street in 1924.  One year later the store moved to 569 Delaware before settling into 378 Delaware in 1927.  Pitt Petri was known for high-quality decorative and art goods, retailing home products such as silverware, crystal, china and other goods.  The company closed its doors early in 2012, around the time that the building was renamed the Huyler Building and placed on the National Registry of Historic Places.
