McLanahan’s: Getting to Know You for 117 Years

For 117 years, McLanahan’s has been “doing the blue” in Downtown State College. While their location has changed several times and they’ve expanded, the quality of this State College staple has not changed.

Ray Agostinelli, the current owner of McLanahan’s, has been in State College since 1958 when he attended Penn State. After he graduated in 1961, he and his wife chose to stay in State College.

“We had fallen in love with State College and decided to stay in State College. This is our home.”

McLanahan’s prides itself in knowing what the customer needs and having it available.

Agostinelli believes in the power of local business.

“The local business gets to know its customers and they get to know you.”


You can visit McLanahan’s Downtown Market at 116 South Allen Street and McLanahan’s Penn State Room at 414 East College Avenue in Downtown State College.
