Just Around the Corner

Residents celebrate the grand opening of Just Around the Corner at 117 E. 4th Street in Mount Carmel. The shop, located at the old Register building, is home to several antique dealers.

MOUNT CARMEL — The old Register building is vacant no more.

Just Around the Corner celebrated its grand opening with a ribbon cutting ceremony and a weekend-long slate of deals to commemorate its opening at 117 E. 4th Street in town — a building which has been vacant for the last four years.

The building’s peculiar layout with a number of bends, varying rooms and open spacing toward the back makes it a perfect match for its new owners.

As you walk “just around the corner” into the store, it’s laced with antique items of all varieties, spanning from coins, Aces apparel, to 1990s sports magazines, Just Around the Corner appears to have it all.

A number of dealers will be enclosed in the building, including Vintage Collections, Tinber Tulips, Pop’s Creations, Liberty Coins, Maple Hill Restorations, B&C Laser by Design, My Everyday Esther, and more.

Prior to housing Just Around the Corner, the building housed the Mount Carmel Register’s operation for nearly 120 years. Prior to that, it was Beauchamp Chapel Methodist Church, which was constructed in 1850. To honor its history, a written account of prior ownership and historical significance is detailed as you enter the doors of Just Around the Corner.

Hours of operation at the location will be from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday. The shop can be reached at 618-263-1120.
