Re-opening sometime in May!
From BB Bats to Turkish Taffy and from Airheads to Warheads, it's easy to find something at Georgie Lou's Retro Candy store in Carlisle that will strike your fancy from among our 1000+ kinds of candy. We specialize in nostalgic candy that will spark childhood memories alongside modern sweets kids will love. We also carry European, Mexican, and Japanese candy, and we make our own fudge, bark, chocolate pretzels, and other specialty treats.
If the candy doesn't do it for you, then one of our 200+ varieties of gross, craft, and nostalgic glass bottle sodas just might. Want to try a marshmallow, chocolate, or PB&J soda? We've got those. Maybe your thing is cream soda or classic Sarsaparilla--we've got those, too. Perfectly chilled bottles of Japanese Ramune, Cheerwine, Nehi, Jones, Frostie, Natrona, Ozell's, Gross Gus, Avery's, and more await you.
Sweets not your thing? Then come check out our pop culture section that celebrates the important music, movies, and moments of your youth. We carry gifts and graphic tees, featuring DC and Marvel Comics, Harry Potter, Doctor Who, Mister Rogers, Bob Ross, Alice in Wonderland, Rosie the Riveter, The Wizard of Oz, Disney, Star Trek, Star Wars, 1980’s teen movies, rock bands, classic video games, and many others.
We also specialize in Harry Potter items here at Georgie Lou's--we have Carlisle’s largest selection of Wizarding World candy and gifts by far. We carry Chocolate Frogs, Chocolate Wands, Jelly Slugs, Butter Beer Soda, and other Potter-themed sweets. We also have Harry Potter magnets, mugs, purses, bags, t-shirts, stickers, pins, journals, playing cards, pens, stationary, and more.
And, we don’t even care if all you do is come gander at our award-winning store windows. People come in off the street to comment on them, so you really might want to stop by to see them. Sure, it’d be great if you picked up a Duran Duran t-shirt or Pickle Juice soda while you’re here, but we aren’t really big on high pressure sales, so you can do you while you’re in our store.
We also host two downtown-wide events each year. And if you’ve ever dreamed of having a candy store all to yourself, you can do that by hosting parties, bus tours, company mixers, and fundraisers at our store. We can also do on-site events, deliver gift boxes (even to Dickinson College HUB boxes), and create custom fudge flavors and party favors.
Thank you for your patience as we remain closed to the public and are online only for now. We are doing local delivery, store pick up, and shipment on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays between 2:00-4:00 PM. Due to COVID, we are not delivering to Dickinson's campus right now, but we are only one block off campus, so orders can easily be picked up during our pick-up times noted above. Read our COVID-19 policies for more details.
