Ribbon cutting held at Picadilli Emporium

NEWTON, NC (February 6, 2012) -- A ribbon cutting was held at Picadilli Emporium in downtown Newton on February 2, 2012.

Newton Mayor Anne Stedman, along with other elected officials, City staff, and merchants were on hand to welcome owners Arthur "Ott" Dillingham, his wife Elaine, and their son Jason and wife Deborah to the downtown business district.


Self-dubbed as "The Marketplace for Old and New Treasures," Picadilli Emporium has something for everyone, including furniture, collectibles, tools, electronics, antiques, and more. Jason said that he and his father enjoy watching "Storage Wars" and attend many auctions, looking for good deals on unique items.

The new store, located at 111 East 1st Street, is open Monday through Friday from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and on Saturday from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.

The public is invited to attend a grand opening on Saturday, February 11.
