Omaha, NE (PRWEB) September 22, 2010
Candyopolis, the Mid West-based candy retailer, is opening its fourteenth location at the Oak View Mall, in Omaha. The store is opening with a ribbon cutting ceremony on September 22nd at 3.00pm, and the Grand Opening festivities will continue throughout the month of September and October with free prize giveaways and candy fun concluding on Saturday October 16th with a grand finale prize giveaway.
With fourteen locations in Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas and now Nebraska, the thirty-year old candy company is one of the last surviving chains of bulk candy stores born in the 1980’s. Under new ownership over the past three years, and with a clear focus on what is fun and happening in the candy industry, the chain is continuing to grow at an impressive pace with a fifteenth location planned within the next few months. The chain expects continued growth as hard economic times open new location opportunities amid greater demand for candy. “People indulge themselves a little bit more when times are tough,” says Jack P. Russo, an analyst with the Edward Jones, a retail brokerage in St. Louis. “These are low-cost items that people can afford pretty easily.”
The grand opening festivities will include gifts, prizes, candy samples and children’s activities. Then be sure to join us on October 16th for our grand finale prize giveaway, culminating with some extra special prizes and events for some very lucky winners. We look forward to seeing you!
