On June 1, 2021 the local outlet thru which I sell syrup moved to a larger venue. I first started selling with them in 2017. At that time they were in an old 4 room school house. They soon out grew that and moved to a recently closed home/lumber center in July 2019. Now, just 23 months later, on June 1, they moved to the former Herb Phillipson’s store in Glenwood Plaza, Oneida, NY. This is a store of over 40,000 S.F.. When they opened on June 1, they were about 80-85% filled up and they are almost 100% filled up now.
In addition to my maple syrup (and a big display of O’Keeffe’s products, Gorilla glues and tapes) that I sell, they have a huge array of vendors who sell lots of antiques, homemade craft items clothes and collectables. They are doing it right, it is the type of store where people return often because the assortment of what is there keeps changing and is fresh. They bill it as The Fun Place To Shop, and the customers seem to agree.
If you are in the Oneida Area, stop and check it out. The plaza has 3 entrances, 2 on Rt 46, just south of the Rt 5 intersection and one off Rt 5, just enter thru the Wendy’s lot and into the Glenwood Plaza.
Syrup sales online are also good, and they get real good in the 3-4 months leading up to Christmas.
