Almost New open for business

A new small business has opened up on Vermilion Ave., in Princeton.

Doris McMullin is who will greet you as you enter through the doors of the newest business in town. Almost New is located on Vermilion Avenue.

A new small business has opened up on Vermilion Ave., in Princeton. It is a combined effort brought forth with the partnership of two local women, Maureen Jurovich and Doris McMullin.

McMullin is the face of Almost New, she is the one who will greet you when you come through the door at 117B Vermilion.

McMullin says she “knows what it is like to struggle.” So, her and her partner, spend a great deal of time looking for, locating and purchasing the items to sell in their second-hand store.

Filling a need so people do not have to travel, providing quality items at affordable prices and supporting the community are qualities that are important to these two ladies.

“Stop in and tell us if you have an interest outside of what we are providing,” said McMullin.  The ladies want Almost New to offer shoppers a “little bit of everything.”

Currently offered in the store are some antiques and a few vintage items. There are pieces of furniture such as; a couch, chair and dining room table set as well as a few other small furnishings.

Almost New has a kitchenware section, home decorative items and collectibles, a baby section, clothing section for men, women and children as well as some  bedding sets to enhance the look of your bedroom. If you are interested in sportswear, check out the skates in stock. The store also offers a few of the more delicate items such as;  jewellery, bath salts and soaps.

Almost New is not set up as a consignment store, the products offered for sale are purchased only by partners, Jurovich and McMullin.

Almost New will be open six days a week. Drop by to see whats available and keep an eye out for the stock they plan on bringing in for Christmas.
