Owner description: The only nut shop of its kind. The Peanut Shoppe strives to ensure that all its nuts are prepared fresh, everyday, throughout the day, guaranteeing you receive the freshest orders and tantalizing your taste buds with the aroma of freshly roasted nuts of all varieties. On location since 1949.

We stopped by this shop at the recommendation of our AAA Guide, and were not disappointed. The scent of roasted nuts and popcorn prepared in vintage equipment, filled the air with delicious aroma. The owner is a pleasant fellow with a good sense of humor and a fund of useful advice about the area. the selection was large but, for foot traffic, nuts can be purchased in small amount and carried out in little white paper bags. We are so glad that this representative of the past is still selling quality food in a nostalgic setting.

If you drive, the address will take you to a pedestrian only street, but here is easy parking around the corner from the shop. The owner is very friendly and knowledgeable. He will let you sample anything he has. The nuts are all very fresh and have good flavor. The freshly made still warm just lightly salted popcorn was excellent!

This unique store will actually fresh roast your order of nuts if you ask politely...or you can select from numerous other candy specialties and/or varieties of nuts that have been freshly roasted earlier that day. Did I mention the caramel popcorn and chocolate-covered nuts? The store has survived despite the spate of other abandoned storefronts along the pedestrian Main Street. In this location for 67 years, the Shoppe is owned by Riddah, who was incredibly friendly and welcoming to two strangers and freshly roasted a delicious pound of cashews to our particular taste.

Actually went in to ask for directions and met a very nice knowable man named Rida Abuzaineh. He was very helpful and of course we bought some of his delicious peanuts.We had quite a chat. The shop is old and very small, but go and try his peanuts.
