A Central New York business gets a boost from the state to retain hundreds of jobs.

Harden Furniture in McConnellsville has been given a price break on power by the Recharge New York Program.  The deal will keep the furniture factory and its 260 employees in operation.  They will also be able to make millions in improvements to their Oneida County facility.

Haren is the oldest furniture factory in the country, and the state says it fell on hard times after the economic downturn hit a few years ago.
