In this age of technology, it's nice to remember the "simpler" times too. You don't find too many stores that focus on nostalgia, that's why it's fun to wander in one of Naperville's newest stores: Naperville General Store.
Old barrels are filled with fun candies from when we were kids, plus nostaligic pop, and plenty of retro toys: salt water taffy, root beer barrels, shrinky dinks.
Not everything has a retro theme, though. I picked up cozy, fuzzy slippers for my daughter, and Thor playing cards for a comic-fan friend.
Know a Naperville North or Central fan? You'll find a few blue/orange and red/white novelty items. No school alliance? That's ok, pick up a general Naperville mug or sign.
While Naperville General Store has treasures from the past, there's plenty of great finds from today to keep you coming bak often.
