It looks like a chain, but it has an amazing array
of old hard-to-find candies including fizzies,
those wierd halloween candies you always got, and
imported chocolates. Not a spam, just a happy
customer of the Los Gatos, CA Powell's

    It's a rather new franchise, started by a guy actually named Powell.

    I visited the original store in Windsor, CA last summer and found it quite fun. They had a huge selection not only of classic, retro and weird items but also some nice imported candies and high-end chocolate bars. Prices are a little higher than you can expect at grocers, but it's certainly nice to find everything in one place.

    I stumbled across a second location in Healdsburg.

    Here's a list I got from the company of all their locations:

    Windsor, CA
    Healdsburg, CA
    Los Gatos, CA
    Novato, CA
    Boulder, CO
    Boise, ID
    Petaluma, CA

    Upcoming stores:
    Chico, CA
    Walnut Creek, CA
    Pleasanton, CA
    La Jolla, CA
    Willow Glen (San Jose), CA

    I got my last bunch of Reed's Cinnamon, Root Beer and Butterscotch hard candies last year (very sad that they discontinued those).
