Just in case you weren’t in the loop:

Brighton Market is no longer open for business.

This probably comes as no surprise to the communities of Gabriels and Paul Smiths, as the most recent owners of Brighton Market failed to provide consistent and satisfactory service to the public. But for those worrying about having to make the long trip to Saranac Lake to do some last-minute grocery shopping – there’s good news on the horizon!

Dan Bain – owner and operator of the Adirondack Corner Store in Lake Placid and the newest owner of the Brighton property, has big plans for his latest business venture.

“We’re planning on doing complete renovations inside and outside, and intend to have the store open by mid-April,” said Bain. “Reason being, we’re going to turn it into the store it should be.”

When asked what changes the store would be undergoing, Bain said we can look forward to brand new equipment, a deli with Boar’s Head products, and even a fully outfitted fuel station. In conjunction with the other changes planned, Bain also explained that the new store would be stepping away from the Brighton name, dubbing the new business the Adirondack Market. Additionally, Bain said he hopes to incorporate promotional deals for students of Paul Smith’s College, as well as employment opportunities for anyone interested.

With the prospect of an experienced business owner at the helm and the support of the surrounding communities, the soon to be opened Adirondack Market is sure to become the wilderness outpost we’ve all been waiting for.

The Adirondack Market is set to open by May 5th.
