Former Miller's News Stand building for sale

Miller's News Stand and the Dry cleaners next door have closed their doors.  It is located at 1 N. Market St.on Duncannon Square, just few doors down from the Doyle Hotel.  

The historic building with a storefront facing Market St. could serve as a great location for a potential new business serving both local residents and visitors who come to Duncannon to hike, paddle, take in scenic views of the rivers & ridges or look for antiques and vintage finds at Old Sledworks.  Opportunities could include an outdoor outfitter, bike shop, coffee house, sandwich shop, artisan gallery, brewpub, bait shop, live music venue, a Duncannon area visitors center, etc.  Interested parties should call 717-834-3848.  

Look for sample local reports on trail-related business opportunities along the Great Allegheny Passage at TrailTowns.org (Ohiopyle and Confluence, for example).

The side of this building facing Cumberland St. was also the planned location for a community mural showcasing an artistic map of local trails and natural features in the greater Duncannon area.  Contact Trailangel Mary if interested in helping out with the mural project.
