Happy Thanksgiving

The Journey Begins

Jenneken’s Junction on the East Service Road in Hillcrest, NY (Former Nelson Ellis Furniture Store) will become “Your Needful Things” today.

Your Needful Things is a 5,000+ square foot multi-vendor shop with wares of all sorts. There is even a fabric reupholstery business located there as well. Last month I took a chance at what I believe will be a successful venue as it evolves and grows.  I currently lease wall space in the hallway leading to Phil’s Gift Shop a Binghamton institution.

There will be a grand re-opening celebration come April and I will post updates as the specifics become available. However in the meantime take a ride and see for yourself.

Current store hours:

Wednesdays 10:00am to 5:00pm, Thursdays 10:00am to 6:00pm, Fridays 10:00am to 5:00pm, Saturdays 10:00am to 5:00pm & Sundays 11:00am to 4:00pm
