Bev & Bob Means first opened Rainbow Corner on December 1, 1980, utilizing only one room of the building (a building that God promised would be fruitful) to help supply items for the spiritual needs of the local community. Thanks to support from the local community and also from loyal customers in other towns, cities and states, the store is now filled with an extensive selection of spiritual, religious and inspirational books, gifts and devotionals. Bev manages the store six days a week. She enjoys interacting with her customers as a ministry and welcomes your comments and suggestions.
Our store is small, but contains (we are told by many customers) the best selection of religious, spiritual and inspirational items anyplace in upstate New York. We pride ourselves on providing only items that are appropriate and consistent with Christian/Catholic beliefs. Please ask if you do not find what you are looking for, and in most cases we can get what you want. We also pride ourselves on providing friendly, helpful and compassionate service to all of our visitors.
One of our most recent additions is an area devoted to marked down items - including many types of books, and a variety of giftware that are reduced up to 50 percent. Please be sure to peruse this room when you visit the store.
