    Dunnies is now an antique shop,,,has been for several years. The original Dunnies has been closed for MANY years. I grew up in that area.

    Wow >>> blast from the past! We used to ride our Schwinn bikes there to get penny candy.

    Welllllll, it's a long time after the question was asked but I can answer if anyone is still interested. Dunnies is no longer open. It's been closed since the 1960's as far as I know. It's a residence now. It's located on the left side of RT 271 South of Johnstown about 3/4 of a mile past the Menoher Heights fire hall and about a half mile before Pickin' Chicken (if you're goin' back that far in time.)
