Candy Addict Now Open

Say you just worked to develop one of the most popular tech devices, ever. Whatcha gonna do now? Open a candy store on Mill Avenue, of course! 

Frank Ellis left Silicone Valley after working as part of the Amazon Kindle team. Exhausted and ready for a new adventure, he and his wife Pam moved to Tempe and decided what Mill Avenue really needed was a place to buy specialty candy -- including the regional, retro, novelty and hard-to-find stuff.

Now if Mill Avenue only still had a multi-plex, first-run movie theater. Sigh. 

Candy Addict is located near ASU at 414 Mill Avenue, 480-921-1155. Visit their website for hours: Candy-Addict.com
