Langhorne resident Akshay Patel, who already owns a successful office store in Jenkintown, will take over Hinkson’s Office Supply Store in Princeton, N.J., writes Krystal Knapp for Planet Princeton.

Hinkson’s has been serving the Princeton community for more than five decades. However, the current owners, cousins Andrew Mangone and John Roberto, decided it was time for somebody else to carry on its legacy.

“It’s bittersweet, but it’s time,” said Mangone, 68. “I loved the store, and I would have done it the rest of my life if it were financially feasible for two co-owners.”

The store faced one of its biggest challenges during the pandemic, but the community rallied to help keep it open.

“People supported us through the pandemic and even helped us with a GoFundMe,” said Mangone.

Patel plans to keep all the staff members who want to continue working at the store. He will continue to offer the usual items loyal customers expect to find in the store but will focus more on shipping, packing, and digital mailboxes, as well as other offerings like gift-wrapping.
