I was in town for Wineglass Marathon and was given a generous $10 gift card to the store in our bag. So many unique and cute things! Thank you so much. Cannot wait to come back next year!

Fun and different. Not your usual gift shop. Buyer must really spend a lot of time finding unique items. Windows in shop always look so vibrant and appealing. Excellent anchor shop on Market Street.

While we were just browsing we came across Conners. I bought a purse and It was even on sale.The service was good to me because I hate going into a place and they follow you around like you are going to steal something.

Another gem in the area on Market Street. You name it they seem to have it. My first stay in the area was close to Christmas and I was able to find many Christmas gifts for my family and friends. Have been back on my second trip to the area and will go back if I go to the area... More

I have been into Connors occasionally over the years, but have not been a regular customer. I was in this week to shop for a new purse. There were 3 ladies in the store, and not one of them took the time to acknowledge my presence or offer assistance, despite being in the store for several minutes actively looking in... More

The owner and her staff are great! This shop offers so many different items - you can easily spend an hour just walking through the shop to make sure you see everything. They offer a wide variety of items - its great! Plus, the have samples of food and free coffee. They make you feel right at home!

Mercantile is accurate, but basically this is a place that sells a variety of goods, from purses and luggage (Vera Bradley) to cards to T-shirts, chocolate, etc. Lots of the Life-is-Good line. Well run and organized, helpful staff. Just an interesting place to wander through, if you're in Corning. Not one of those chain stores where if you've been in... More

I absolutely love Connors Mercantile. In fact, because it's such a great store, I think nothing of driving the 40 or so minutes it takes to get there from home. Beautiful gifts for birthdays, anniversaries or "just because". I love that they have Crabtree and Evelyn products, as well as Nomad products for men. Excellent selection of Vera bags. Huge... More
