Store Hours and Contact Information

Established in 1983, Stan Slade created what is now Despatch Junction in a former New York Central freight house.


The original building was constructed in 1884. It was known as Penfield Station, the first to be erected in what is now East Rochester.The last passenger train left Penfield Station in March of 1898, and it became a freight house until the mid 1960s. Several fires burned sections of the building away over the years, including one devastating fire in May 2014.


The new store was rebuilt throughout 2014 and the beginning of 2015, based off of a rail station in Chelsea, Michigan. With a new life and a new purpose, the new building is sure to carry on a similar legacy to the freight house that once stood there.
