ELMIRA, N.Y. (WETM) — Nutmeg Upcycling is closing their doors to their downtown shop and relocating to Big Flats.
They will be be setting up shop in Oldies But Goodies after two-years of business in downtown.
Rich Lavere, Nutmeg Upcycling says that he likes Elmira, but he was not getting enough business to stay here.
“To be honest, we haven’t had the foot traffic to support the business in it’s current location,” Lavere explained.
Lavere believes in Elmira’s future, even if it wasn’t working for him and his store.
“I really look forward to the day Elmira have a really vibrant residential and real estate community, but that day isn’t quite here yet,” Lavere said.
Until then Lavere encourages people to support local business to promote growth.
