Candy Store in Depot Town

The next time you are in Depot Town and feel the need for a candy bar, I suggest you stop in at Gordon's Five & Dime at 23 East Cross Street, next to Quinn's Essential. The store just opened and the owners, Katherine and Shannon Gordon, are working to give the place the feel of the old fashion five and dime stories. The story has plenty of candy, and popcorn made on a popcorn maker from old Tiger Stdium. They also sell ice cream and toys. None of the toys, by the way, require batteries. A nice place to stop in and shop.

Oh neat. Not that I need another place within walking distance to tempt me with ice cream but....

I have to support local businesses after all, right? ;)

Four-year old Bonnie, their daughter also has a long career in sales ahead of her. She's the perfect asset for suggesting more candy to go in your shiny aluminum pail at the store.

Still, I hope they can make it with their ultra low prices.

Dear Lynne and Theresa,

Yes we should support local businesses, as they give the community so much to be proud of. The new store adds charm to the Depot Town section of the city, which already has so much, but never can have enough. I am also looking forward to meeting four your old Bonnie, to see what she suggests i put in my shiny aluminum pail.
