About Parkleigh

Have fun. Feel good. Buy stuff. Voted Rochester's Best Gift store by the Democrat and Chronicle and by The City Paper. Parkleigh began as a pharmacy in 1960. In 1986 we said goodbye to the pharmacy and became the gift store you love today.

Maker Scarlett Markham is actually a former Parkleigh employee! She developed her line, Flour Pail Kids while working here. We thought our customers would be as amused by it as we are by Scarlett.

What inspired you to get into business?

Meet Venita D'Angelo. Her company, Light Essentials, is our longest running YEA competition winner. Each year winners from the Young Entrepreneurs Academy are given a limited time to sell at Parkleigh. Her candles were such a hit we continue to sell them years after the original contract. We even had her create a signature scent Parkleigh candle. With profits going toward college, and a bright future ahead, we asked her to share how she’s achieving her success.

We love getting our shipments from BlueQ. As well as being full of fun stuff you like to buy, they offer jokes, tips, and tiny treasures like these. What are these? Tiny art pieces from their Art and Assembly Department.
This department is led by staff with and without disabilities and has been with BlueQ for 25 years!!
Bravo, BlueQ for being such an inclusive employer and for sharing the love with us.
