BINGHAMTON, N.Y. - A business that was born and grown in Binghamton is expanding to a new facility in the City's First Ward.
SaveAround has relocated from Front Street in Binghamton to a larger workspace and warehouse located at the Charles Street Business Park.
The company got its start in the 1970s when founder Ray Stanton created a local business coupon book for a class fundraising project.
Now, SaveAround provides over 10,000 organizations in every US state with coupon books for fundraising.
The new space is over two times larger, includes more parking and has an on-site warehouse.
President Luke Stanton says he didn't consider relocating the business outside of the Parlor City.
"When you look at other places that you travel to, they're nice and fun, but it's not home. This is home. When you start a family here, you really start to realize that. I have five beautiful kids and a wife, so as we expanded our family, we were rooted here and you really appreciate what home is," said Stanton.
By staying in the area, SaveAround is retaining over 80 full-time jobs and it will look to add around 15 to 20 employees within the next year.
$25 million per year is generated through SaveAround's coupon books.
They also have a mobile app.
