everyone seems to have a story about their favorite childhood candy or toy...

when people walk into our store for the first time,

it’s always fun to “catch” their reaction...


“I remember that”...

  “I bet you don’t have ____. You do?  Wow!  I haven’t had one

of those since I was a kid”....

“My favorite candy store was on the corner near my school and...”

“I have to bring my kids here to show them what I played with

when I was their age”...

“My friend told me about you guys - you’ve just become my new

best friends ‘cause I’m gonna be here all the time”...

“Thank you for being here”...

our all-time favorite is from a newspaper reporter

who was doing a story about our store a few years ago...

“Inside Bobb Howard’s General Store a sign declares

FAIRY TALES DO COME TRUE

Here they really do, for kids of all ages”...

many of you asked us to create a website so that your family and friends in distant places

could experience what you keep coming back to and telling them about...


we hope a picture’s worth a bunch of smiles and you giggle with nostalgic memories....
