Welcome to Opie's

Opie’s Candy Store is located on Main Street in downtown Mount Airy, North Carolina. Mount Airy is the hometown of Andy Griffith and the inspiration for Mayberry on the Andy Griffith Show. Opie’s specializes in olde-tyme goodies you knew as a kid like Mary Janes, Squirrel Nut Zippers, and Big Hunk candy bars. Young and old alike come into Opie’s from all over America and other parts of the world for the friendly folks and downhome sweet treats.

When you get a hankerin’ for friendly folks, cold, bottled soda pop out of an old Coke cooler, and fresh delicious candy, come to Opie’s Candy Store. Fill your little brown sack with everything from root beer barrels to double-dipped peanuts to all-day suckers. We have over 400 candies to choose from. We also have hand-dipped ice-cream. Maybe you’d like your ice-cream with a shot glass full of candy! Whatever you choose, you’ll be glad you visited Opie’s Candy Store in Mount Airy, NC. So come to Opie’s to rekindle an old memory or make a new one. We’ll be waiting for you!
