Gaffer District 114 Pine Street Business Update

Hello Gaffer District neighbors,

 

As you may have heard, we are saddened to see our downstairs neighbors, the Corningware, Corelle & More Store, closing. We have enjoyed sharing our building with their team for 15+ years and sincerely appreciated the warm welcome they showed to customers throughout that time. Corelle Brands was one of the founding sponsors of GlassFest and a sponsor of numerous Wineglass Marathon races. The staff's customer service and genuine excitement were essential to the constant flow of repeat customers throughout the years. To Heather and her entire team, we thank you and we will miss the wave and exchanges of sometimes silly faces through the window as we bopped in and out of our office. If you have a chance, please stop by and wish Heather and her team well. They have referred many customers to other Gaffer District businesses over the years and I know they are going to miss being here.

 

As a result of the store leaving, the building owners, Corning Property Management, are taking the opportunity to do some important refurbishments to the building, which was built in the mid-1940s. We have agreed to relocate our offices to make room for those improvements. We are very excited that we will remain in the Gaffer District as we move to the 4th floor of the Baron Steuben Building and are in the midst of packing with a goal to be in our new space by February.

 

Our phone number will continue to be (607) 937-6292, and our new mailing address is Corning's Gaffer District, Inc., 1 West Market Street, Suite 401, Corning, NY 14830. We will install a locked drop box on the alley side of the building to allow for forms, parking permit payments, etc., to be dropped off at our customer's convenience.

 

In addition, we will be hosting a retired props sale (decor-related items we use in our Visual Merchandising Design of windows). It had been our intention to have a retired props sale in the first quarter, so the timing of our move is perfect. We would rather sell it than pack and move it to sell later. The sale will be toward the end of the month and we will share dates and times with you shortly. Access will comply with COVID safety protocols, i.e., masks, social distancing, and a limited number of customers in the space at a time.

We will keep you updated on our move as things come together and as always, we will continue to send updates on our events, promotions, grants, etc. We are full steam ahead for an event-packed 2022!

 

Happy New Year everyone, stay well.

Coleen and the entire Gaffer District Team
