The new location is at the corner of Grace and Coveland Street, below the Penn Cove Pizza and Pasta.The antique store owned by Tom and Debbie Rusnak opened in November 1999.

In the Food For All campaign, which begins Oct. 29, customers are encouraged to add $1, $3 or $5 to their grocery bill at checkout time. The money will go to fight hunger locally and around the world. Local food charities will be selected by each store at the end of the campaign to receive the funds contributed. Of the money collected, 55 percent remains local while the rest goes to the food industry’s self-help programs worldwide. Every penny goes to fight hunger since underwriters pay for program expenses.The campaign, which runs until Jan. 6, is being held in over 6,000 supermarkets nationwide. Last year, Brown and Cole stores — the parent company of Ennen’s — received an award for raising a record amount of money. "
