This is a random list of 15 great old businesses that are still around and kicking in 2022. On this list you will see several restaurants, retail stores, sporting venues, and amusement and entertainment destinations that have really stood the test of time. We all love it when a new business opens up in our area. We rush to see the new building, the new items for sale, and to see what the latest trends are in retail and dining.
But old is good, too.
There are several places on this list that I frequent regularly when I am out and about in Upstate New York. Yes, I cannot pass by Jack’s in Albany for a plate of oysters or scallops, or stop in at the Columbus Bakery in Syracuse and say hi to Jimmy Retzos and grab a hot fresh loaf of his Italian-style bread. I also love to visit the oldest general store in New York State when I am close to Hillsdale. All are on this list, and many others.
And lets face it. The first legendary business on this list will surely melt your heart and make you feel like a kid again!
So, remember that everything old is new again. But so why not stick to the original at these 56 places to be treasured.
