Husband-and-wife team Steve and Jeanine Rometty founded Old Town Candy & Toys to revive the aesthetic of old-fashioned general stores with an inventory of timeless trinkets alongside classic sweets. "I just hope everybody enjoys themselves and has fun coming in here and reminiscing, seeing all the nostalgic things," Jeanine told the Arizona Republic. Dolls, puzzles, and handcrafted wooden toys stimulate imaginations, and children's books augment whimsical text with illustrations and invisible holograms. The shop also supplies shoppers with a selection of creamy, rich chocolates accented with fruit and nuts as well as sugar-free versions of traditional treats.
