Mountaineer Mania

Joined March 17, 2021

For 40 years, Mountaineer Mania has been in the same location and under the same ownership. Our alumni customers have seen their own children become App State Alumni. In 2020, Melody Pineda, after growing up with the Corriher's children and working behind the counter throughout her high school and college years, purchased Mountaineer Mania. It was a promise she'd made more than ten years before. We are still in the same location, with the same mission to know and celebrate our customers.
