Posted: Friday, July 15, 2011

A Chamber of Commerce ribbon cutting was held on Tuesday, July 12 in celebration of the grand re-opening of the Johnson Junction located at 1863 Old U.S.-24 in Huntington.

Burns Builders of Avilla, began demolition of the old building on Monday, April 4 and the new 2,160 square foot building opened for business on Friday, June 3. The project took just a little under nine weeks to complete.

The new store has an expanded beverage counter offering coffees, cappuccinos, lattes, brewed teas, slushies and more. New to this store is a twenty head fountain machine with regular or chopped ice for cold drinks. The store has even put in oatmeal for the health conscious individual and a new ATM machine.

The store is open 24 hours a day and 365 day per year.
