Shopping Spots Worth the Tip - the Candy Man Can

There is something about a candy store that brings out the child in all of us. For the true retro experience you need to take a visit to

Economy Candy
108 Rivington Street on the Lower East Side

It’s still 1937 when you visit this store. You will find yourself marveling over the tight aisles filled with bins, tins and bags
of candy, much of which is no longer available in most candy stores and some of which are imports rarely seen anywhere else than in this store.

Though they have remained loyal to the tried and true goodies that keep generations of customers coming back over the years this family run business has added other items to there inventory that are outside the realm of sweet. They include teas, nuts and dried fruits.

They have even come into the internet age with a website and mail order option, but I strongly encourage you to make a pilgrimage to this New York City staple and get sugared up.
