$10 of Every “MLB 10 The Show” Purchase Goes to Cancer Research

SCEA has teamed up with Stand Up To Cancer (SU2C) and Major League Baseball (MLB) to aid in the fight against cancer. Now through July 10, purchase MLB 10 The Show for PS3 in retail stores and SCEA will donate $10 of its proceeds to SU2C to fuel research centered on saving lives and quickly getting new treatments to patients. They are donating $10 for every copy sold, so now is a great time to purchase this title for your friends and family too!

The PlayStation-exclusive The Show series has been a huge hit for baseball fans. With this year’s MLB 10 The Show, you can enjoy a first-rate baseball experience with features and modes destined to quicken the heart, raise the stakes, and hurl you into a true MLB baseball experience with Home Run Derby, MLB All-Star Futures Game, Movie Maker, Catcher Mode and more.

Sony Computer Entertainment America is doing a highly commendable service and we thank them for it. As they say on their site, “Not only will fans get the most authentic and realistic sports game around, but it will also allow them to join the ever-growing SU2C community to raise awareness and support for cancer research.” There are few valuable opportunities like this to benefit cancer research, especially in retail game sales. Make your purchase count by going to any P.C. Richard & Son retail location and purchasing MLB 10 The Show for PlayStation 3!

Yankees Love: Enzo’s Dugout Visit

We held a contest recently where parents and their kids ages 7-14 needed to record a video about why they love the Yankees and P.C. Richard & Son. The winner was randomly drawn from the submissions and received a once-in-a-lifetime trip to the Yankees dugout and 4 tickets to the game. The lucky winner was former Little League Yankee, PSP 3000 lover, and 7 year old Enzo Cupani. Here was his video submission:

In his submission, this cute seven year old said that he wanted his first “real league” Yankees game to be “really special,” and I think that we achieved that for him. Enzo was escorted by a Yankees rep to witness the players, his heroes, coming in and out of the dugout before their game on June 11, 2010 against Houston. The Cupani family wrote in and sent pictures to tell us more about their experience:

The Yankee dugout visit was AMAZING! It was beyond any of our expectations. He got 6 players’ autographs: Nick Swisher, Robinson Cano, Ivan Nova, Chad Moeller, Francisco Cervulli AND Derek Jeter! You didn’t make his dreams come true, because he doesn’t even know how to dream of this. The Yankees gave him more dreams to have.

P.C. Richard was very generous to extend this once-in-a-lifetime experience, and Enzo responded in kind. He gave away five of his six signed baseballs: to his cousin, neighbor, two best friends, and his baby brother. Many little boys (and their dads) are very happy! His whole life, he will be known as “the guy who met the Yankees.” A wonderful legacy.

200 Thank Yous to the P.C. Richard family, and the historic number of wins Andy Pettitte –my boyfriend in my head– achieved at this game!

Most Sincerely,
Deb, Joe, Enzo & Angelo

We are incredibly happy to hear that Enzo had such an amazing time, and his mother’s letter and photos touched our hearts. We wanted to share them will all of you!

Announcing the Launch of the P.C. Richard & Son Mobile Site!

When you’re on the go and need to look up your account, product information, stock at a particular store, or the current price of an item, check out our newly-launched mobile site! To access this new mobile-enabled site, visit on your mobile device and you will be automatically redirected. This has just been launched today and our internal web team has worked very hard on it.

“It was an ongoing project on-and-off for about two months,” said our programmer, Steve. “My favorite feature is the in-store inventory lookup, which is currently unique to the mobile site and not on our full site right now.” When I asked him about his goals when creating the mobile site, he said, “I tried to keep the same functionality and really parallel the regular site. It’s  a different perspective of the website you’re used to seeing, just on a smaller resolution.”

The only major difference of our full site versus this mobile site is that the mobile site is not currently commerce enabled, but Steve has integrated an “order by phone” tab so you can conveniently place an order from anywhere. Try it out and tell us what you think!

Here’s a brief overview of our great new mobile site:

When you first get to the site, you’ll notice how easy it is to navigate. You can search for a particular product, browse categories, or see what hot deals we have available for the week. You can also log in to your account, check the status of an order, track a delivery or service, sign up for our e-mail newsletter (hint: if you’re a new subscriber, you’ll get a $15 off $100 or more coupon if you do), and a contact us button to dial our toll-free 877 number.

This is the “browse by category” page. As you can see, we have everything in our regular site’s catalog here and ready to browse. These categories are also broken down into sub-categories, which are sometimes then even broken down into further categories. For example, Appliances and Vaccuums can bring you to Air Conditioners, which then can direct you to Window Air Conditioners. It’s after that that you can view all of the products we have available for your specific needs.

Here’s a sample of products you’d find under the category you choose. You can view a short description, the model number, amount of product reviews and the current low price we’re offering.

Once you select a particular product, can see more information, customer reviews, features and available warranties. You can also e-mail the details to you or a friend, order by phone, or check the stock of a store near you.

If you wish to check the current stock of a store near you, click “find in store” on the product page and enter your zip code. You’ll be presented with a list of stores in your area, their address, phone number and inventory level, and how many miles away they are.

If you need more information about a store, including a map and the services they offer, you can access a profile page for each location on the “stores” tab.

Another page you should make a point to check out is the “hot deals” section, which is accessible right from the homepage. These deals are constantly changing and you can save a great deal of money every week!

Also, don’t forget that you can also manage your account from the mobile site. Think of it as your personal P.C. Richard & Son assistant!

Again, this is a general overview of the features included on our mobile site, but you should really check it out for yourself. Keep us in mind the next time you’re comparison shopping or need extra details on a product! You can access the site by typing into your mobile phone’s browser and you will be automatically redirected.

Recipe: Grilled Peaches & Cream

Toni Senecal from Toni On! New York stopped by one of our P.C. Richard & Son showrooms to check out some of the BBQ grills we have available and learn a fantastic recipe from our own Pat Dehner. He explained that our gas grills range from $99 to $8,000 for your absolute dream grill, and Toni was shocked to hear that you can cook anything on a Weber grill that you’d normally cook in your oven! Yes, we have done demonstrations where chocolate chip cookies were made on one of these fine grills.

Pat didn’t make chocolate chip cookies with Toni this time, but made a delicious modified version of peaches and cream. Check out the video here, and the recipe below:

Grilled Peaches and Cream


  • Peaches
  • Vegetable oil
  • Honey
  • Cream cheese


  1. Slice the peaches in half and remove the pits. The riper the peaches, the better.
  2. Take a small amount of vegetable oil and lightly coat the open side of the peach halves.
  3. Light your grill and place the peaches face-down directly onto the grates. Close the cover and let cook for five minutes.
  4. Turn the peaches over and pour a small amount of honey over the face of each peach before placing a dollop of cream cheese in their centers.
  5. Close the cover of the grill again until the cream cheese is softened.
  6. Place more honey over your peaches if desired and serve!

Toni not only loved Pat’s recipe (as you can clearly see in the video), but got a great grill and loved our sales staff!

To get your grill, head on over to any P.C. Richard & Son location or check out our barbeques online.
