Frequently Asked Questions
Do you have Vernors, Nehi, Cheerwine, Ale 8-1, Green River, Moxie, Triple XXX, Dog & Suds or Dad's Root Beer?
Yup!! Or at least we hope so! As suppliers work to get back to normal, we are seeing these guys in more availablity. Ideally, we will have them on our shelves at all times. If you're wanting a case or two of your favorite soda, feel free to call your local store to check the status.
Do you have _____ (insert favorite old school candy here)?
Chances are good we say "yes!" Similar to soda availability we hope to have them all but supply chains are still somewhat wonky. If we don't have it, we may be able to get it. Come on in and test us!
Where do you find all of this incredible stuff?
We have a bunch of vendors who help us fill our shelves with fun and whimsy. We use almost all of our brain power choosing just the right things for each of our stores. Let us know if you think we're missing something!
How do you find such amazing employees??
We start with great people, train them well, have a lot of fun, and work hard with the teams! We look for folks who are ready to engage, offer dad jokes at every turn, provide fabulous customer service and communication and can do 10-15 things at one time (or maybe just look like it)!

Do you make donations?
We have established the following guidelines to help identify when you will likely get a “yes”.
Your request is for us specifically and not addressed to “Hello” or “to whom it may concern”. We want to be the belle of the ball and need to be wooed.
You are looking for donations for an animal or children’s charity or school.
You are with a local charitable or non-profit organization. We want to see donations stay local and a high percentage of funds go directly to the charity.
If we have room in our monthly budget, we will try to accommodate as many requests as we can. Each store manager will be able to assess this best. For the most part, requests are accepted and responded to on a first come, first donated to basis.
We like to donate gift baskets, gift cards, and soda tastings but if you have specific other wishes, let’s talk.
We do not place ads (local theaters may be an exception), donate to golf outings, galas/formal events, or national charities. We do not donate to political or religious groups.
The above being said, we reserve the right to change our minds at any time and say yes or no in opposition to these guidelines.
