I grew up just north of Richmond, and we pronounced it puh ree ah. Many people in the next generation have begun pronouncing it per year because that's what they are called in school.
My father's research turned up the french name of Perrier which would have the emphasis on the first sylable and the final r pronounced (Unlike the American version of the water, which sold for more because it have a French sounding name) which gives Per ree er. Any English bureaucrat worth his salt would be able to Pur ye ar out of that.
I turn around for almost anything that starts with a P and ends with a R.
