A Broome County group that has operated a store providing affordable clothing for more than a half century is back in business at a new location.

The Binghamton chapter of the Ladies of Charity has moved its "Nearly New Shop" to a West Side site near the Johnson City village line.

The new store is located at 331 Main Street, less than two blocks east of the Square Deal Arch.

The shop had operated at 100 Main Street for more than two decades. But it was closed during the Covid-19 pandemic after the building owner - Catholic Charities of Broome County - wanted to use the site for something else.

The Nearly New Shop opened on Clinton Street in Binghamton's First Ward in 1969. The store eventually moved to the Catholic Charities site near Main and Edwards streets in 1998.

Volunteers with the Ladies of Charity group were excited when they found a new location for the shop. They expressed appreciation for the support of Edward Lane, the building owner.

A "grand re-opening" event at the store is scheduled for Wednesday from 2 to 4 p.m.

The Nearly New Shop's regular hours are Thursday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Clothing donations for the store may be placed on the back porch of the building.
