Store Manager John McAllister says Bon-Ton is committed to serving the Twin Tiers community.
"We try to bring in local vendors so you'll see if you look over in the home store you'll see there's things from Vitrix Glass in Corning that we're selling now, we've got vendors from all over Upstate New York so we're really trying to get the local businesses going and show community support," McAllister explains.
