decades of candy.

11 11 2010

We have a pretty good selection of candy here in the store (Blickenstaff’s)

But – that’s about to change.
We’re about have an absolutely astounding selection of candy…

And I’m not talking about every variety of starburst on the market (although I’m a huge fan of the bags that only have red ones in it)

We’re about to become the ONLY place you will find some certain nostalgic candies.

Have you had or even heard of the following ten pieces of candy?

Squirrel Nut Zippers
Goo Goo Clusters
Sky Bar
Mary Janes
Mountain Bar

I had never heard of ANY of these till I started working here.

There is something very fulfilling about being the only store to carry certain items.
I like it.

It’s kind of like the mission.
When you were walking around you knew that you had something unique and special.
You also knew that if people just understood how amazing your “candy” was – they would do anything it took to have some.

Although on the mission we were giving it away.
In the store we’re trying to turn a small profit so that we can all have jobs 🙂

There’s a principle in business that says: when you are the “only shop in the marketplace”, you control the marketplace.

Spiritually speaking, there’s only one shop in the marketplace that offers exactly what we need.

“Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” (John 14:6)

? Have you had any of those candies mentioned?
