NEW HARTFORD, N.Y. – The former owner of Herb Philipson’s, a sporting goods store that permanently closed last year, is opening a new location called All Seasons Outfitters in New Hartford.
Guy Viti says the store will open in the building that formerly housed Toys ‘R’ Us on Commercial Drive, next to Planet Fitness.
An All Seasons Outfitters has already opened in Dewitt.
Viti says he’s eager to open another store in the community.
"The comments are they were very happy before and I'm trying to bring that back and bring it in this area. There is a niche for winter wear. There's a niche for winter boots,” said Viti.
Viti is hoping to open the New Hartford location in March.
Herb Philipson’s filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy and closed all locations in the fall of 2019.
