Binghamton clothing store for people in need opens on new site

A Broome County group that had operated a store offering affordable clothing for more than half a century has resumed business in a new location.

The Binghamton Chapter of the Ladies of Charity has moved its “Nearly New Shop” to a West Side site near the village edge of Johnson City.

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

The store had operated at 100 Main Street for over two decades. But it was closed during the Covid-19 pandemic after the building’s 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.

The volunteers from the Ladies of Charity group were delighted when they found a new location for the shop. They expressed their appreciation for the support of Edward Lane, the owner of the building.

A “grand reopening” event at the store is scheduled for Wednesday from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m.

Regular hours for The Nearly New Shop are Thursday through Saturday 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

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