Everyone has an extremely vivid and pleasant memory of where they went as a child to get their favorite candy - whether it was the corner store or their Grandma's candy dish. Powell's Sweet Shoppes are a nostalgic re-creation of that classic and bygone era.
On the surface we sell ice cream and sweets, but you don't have to stand in the Shoppe too long before you realize that what we really offer are memories. "I feel like a kid in a candy store!" and "I haven't seen that since I was a kid!" are far and away the most common things we hear. And that is precisely our goal. We want to walk our customers down memory lane and remind them of good things and good times.
