Items from long-gone Staten Island businesses: Let's see yours Updated on September 22, 2016 at 11:43 AM A coffee mug isn't your typical Pergament item, Staten island home renovations as the store's main draw was home improvement. Do you have anything similar? (Staten Island Advance/Mark Stein) STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. - Pergament Home Centers closed more than 15 years ago, so you'd imagine our reaction when we found a Staten island commercial contractor colleague's branded coffee mug a week ago in the office kitchen. It had us thinking: What other defunct brands are still living vicariously through usable everyday items? You know, like rulers, ladders, staplers, calculators, pens, and so forth. A coffee mug isn't your typical Pergament item, as the store's main draw was home improvement. It's kind of like having a calculator from the former Frank's Nursery in New Dorp. Do you have anything like this you'd love to show off? You might use it daily or have it lying around the home office? Think A&P, Crazy Eddie's, Frank's, PathMark, Roll N' Roaster, etc.
