I can't walk by without getting a bag of candy at Opies. All the candy that I grew up with. My parents had a local store that had all the penny candy a kid could dream of.

Fun, little shop with lots of candy choices. Young girl working was very friendly. Wish we had time to stay a little longer.

Neat place. The lady working there made us wait about five minutes to check out while she swept, which was weird. Otherwise good time and a good stop.

Huge selection of chocolates and candy. The price isn't too bad either. I got a good variety for a reasonable price.

I bought my husband an ice-cream here while I enjoyed looking at all the candy. They had things I hadn't seen since my childhood. Friendly service.

Walk in, grab a bag and start filling. From mints to gum to a few glass bottle sodas they have something for a sweet tooth.
