The store opened in it's present location in 1979. The candy manufacturing business was sold to the Reid family in 1987.

Of course we have to celebrate the holidays with a music video. This is the 1958 Chuck Berry Classic Christmas song "Run Rudolph Run". It was written by Johnny Marks and Marvin Brodie.
Hope everyone has a wonderful Holiday Season!
