We are Karen and Donny Ray and our business is located in LaGrange, Ohio. We grew up in the late fifties and early sixties and are certified "baby boomers." It cost 50 cents to go the "picture show" and a large bag of popcorn from the "dime store" was only a dime (really!). We remember the first McDonald's in Cleveland when the burgers were 15 cents and the fries sold for 12 cents. Those were the days!
This adventure began in July, 1999 when we walked into a large candy store in Cleveland, Ohio that specializes in old time candy. We had no idea that many of our old time favorites still existed. It was the candy we ate as kids. Necco Wafers, Candy Buttons on paper tape, Wax Lips, Candy Cigarettes. Amazing!
We went on-line in early 2000 with our first candy assortment and began to grow. In 2003 we moved into a larger facility and expanded at the beginning of 2004. We moved into a much larger facility in August of 2006 where we are located today. 2015 began our 15th year in the candy business. Thanks for helping us be successful. We hope you like what we do and will continue to support us with your purchases and referrals.
What We Do
We have a lot of fun eating and selling the candy we ate as kids. Sometimes we are asked how we can sell 50 year old candy. It makes us smile and our response is that our candy is fresh from the manufacturer. We don't make the candy, we tracked down the manufacturers who are still in the business and then sell their candy on the internet. We package and ship our candy every day so it gets into your hands (and mouths) quickly.
The mission of the Old Time Candy Company is to provide childhood candy memories in such a way that it glorifies God and His plan for our lives. Our goal for every candy order is that it results in a "delighted customer" who will tell their friends.
We recognize the dignity of life in our customers, employees and suppliers and treat everyone who crosses our path with the highest standard of integrity and morality. The success of any organization depends on how it serves human needs through the combined efforts of people. We agree with President Theodore Roosevelt who said, "In any moment of decision the best thing you can do is the right thing, the next best thing is the wrong thing, and the worst thing you can do is nothing."
To God be the Glory
We are a Christian company attempting to bring glory to God in everything we do. We give Him the credit, honor and glory for any success we might achieve.
