Nancy Harriman, Winner, Maple Run Emporium Anniversary Celebration Gift Basket.


Nancy and Rick Harriman of Churubusco, NY, Win Maple Run Emporium’s Anniversary Celebration Gift Basket


POTSDAM, NY – May 16, 2014 – Rick and Nancy Harriman of Churubusco, NY, were drawn as the winners of Maple Run Emporium’s Anniversary Celebration Gift Basket. Nancy was in Potsdam on May 16, to pick up the beautiful basket brimming with maple gourmet specialties.


“This is the first time I’ve ever won a drawing,” Nancy said. More than 200 entries were received during the shop’s month-long Third Anniversary Celebration in April.


Nancy retired from cashiering at the Potsdam Sav A Lot grocery store three-and-a-half years ago when she married Rick and moved to Churubusco. Rick is also retired but enjoys running his Rick Harriman Enterprises, Inc., a business servicing plumbing and computers.


The Harrimans were in Potsdam during April to do some shopping while Haylee and Sadie, their two Shih Tzus, were being trimmed at The Clip Joint in Morley. “We come to Potsdam about every two months to shop while the dogs are being trimmed,” Nancy explained. “I love maple so I wanted to come to Maple Run that day.”


Nancy has been coming to the shop since it opened three years ago. “I’m impressed with the shop’s growth,” Nancy said. “There’s so much more inventory now.”


Though the dogs weren’t due for a trim in May, Nancy made the hour-long drive to Potsdam today to pick up her Gift Basket, visit her son, and shop – in fact, Nancy came to the Maple Run counter with an armful of goodies she’d selected before announcing to owner Mary Hilton that she was the Anniversary Celebration Gift Basket winner. “I love the maple taffy and so does my daughter – I send it to her,” Nancy said. Capping off the day, a very happy winner Nancy Harriman posed with the basket. “Thank you! We’ll enjoy it,” she said.


Maple Run Emporium, 49 Market Street, is open Monday through Saturday, 10am to 6pm. (315) 274-0102.
