Nearly two years after the Old World Deli closed its doors, a new business has opened at the downtown Binghamton location.

The deli at 27 Court Street went out of business in March 2022. The space that had been occupied by the deli now is home to Downtown Discount Beer and Market.

Store manager Nicolette Mattioli told WNBF News the new business opened in late December.

The shop sells beer and soda, along with a few basic food items like milk, bread and eggs.

Store manager Nicolette Mattioli said the business operates seven days a week. It is open until midnight on Fridays and Saturdays.

Mattioli said the store will increase the number of items it offers in the future. She said it's expected to carry some ice cream items during the summer.

The store is owned by Patrick VanPutte of Binghamton.

The Old World Deli had been one of the oldest businesses on Court Street. The deli had been a fixture at the site just east of Boscov's since 1979 - nearly five years before the department store opened.

LOOK: Best Beers From Every State

To find the best beer in each state and Washington D.C., Stacker analyzed January 2020 data from BeerAdvocate, a website that gathers user scores for beer in real-time. BeerAdvocate makes its determinations by compiling consumer ratings for all 50 states and Washington D.C. and applying a weighted rank to each. The weighted rank pulls the beer toward the list's average based on the number of ratings it has and aims to allow lesser-known beers to increase in rank. Only beers with at least 10 rankings to be considered; we took it a step further to only include beers with at least 100 user rankings in our gallery. Keep reading to find out what the best beer is in each of the 50 states and Washington D.C.
