Home Central Stores Gets an Upgrade

A Vestal home improvement store gets an upgrade!

Saturday, Home Central in Vestal invited locals to take a look at their new and improved store with a Renovation Celebration.
The home improvement store opened its doors 30 years ago.

More than 600 people came out to Saturday's event which included a Spin-to-Win Prize Giveaway, discounted items and a Treasure Hunt for opportunities to win things like a seven piece patio set, a Weber Gas Grill and a gas-powered pressure washer. The store's manager says renovations are vital for the business to keep up with modern home repair demands.

"You always have to be changing your product and that's why this was very important for us. We had some stale product in the store, so we added quite a few skews for a new product mix while getting rid of old dead inventory. It seems like every year you turn around you'll have a new composite decking product, so you have to upgrade what you deal with," said manager of the Vestal Home Central store Hamilton Cadwell.

The business also sold five-gallon buckets for$1 apiece where customers could fit as many items as they could in the bucket to get discounted prices.

The proceeds from the sale of each bucket will help benefit the Lions Club.
