Ribbon cutting, reception set at Roscoe General Store

| June 28, 2016

COSHOCTON – The Coshocton County Chamber of Commerce will hold a ribbon cutting at the newly remodeled Roscoe General Store 384 N. Whitewoman St. in Historic Roscoe Village. The ceremony will be held at 10 a.m. on Thursday, June 30, followed by a light refreshment reception. The public is invited to attend this free event.

The Roscoe General Store in Historic Roscoe Village reopened May 6 after being closed for a few weeks for renovation. The building was recently purchased by Roscoe Junction, LLC, a division of Junction Enterprises, owned and operated by the McKenna Family. Junction Enterprises also operates several businesses in Historic Roscoe Village – Medbery Marketplace, Caldersburgh Trading Company and Roscoe Village Sweets & Treats; and other businesses in the area including Unusual Junction, Lava Rock Grill, Universe Bridal and Prom; and McKenna’s Market and Guernsey Kitchen in Cambridge.

The Roscoe General Store building was built in 1870 by John Barkhurst as a drug store and general store. It has been an iconic building and store in Roscoe Village ever since and even more so since the restoration of the Village in the late 1960s and early 70s. Roscoe Junction acquired the building in late March of this year and worked on renovations throughout the month of April which included replacing windows, painting the building, adding a new sign, repairs to the roof and more to prepare for reopening.

“We’ve been filling the store with merchandise fitting for the Roscoe General Store in  an historic village,” said Jan Myers, director of marketing and operations for Junction Enterprises. “Along with numerous gifts, antiques, collectibles, and candles, we also have historic toys, coffee, apple butter, soaps, and of course, the delicious homemade fudge the General Store has always been known for.”

The Roscoe General Store is open seven days a week from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. For information, call the store at 740-622-7715 or find the Roscoe General Store on Facebook.
