Economy Candy (108 Rivington St, Manhattan)
Formerly a shoe and hat repair shop with a candy pushcart outside the store, Economy Candy took a drastic turn during the Depression.
When the Depression hit in the 1930s, the candy cart outside started bringing in more business than the shoes and hats themselves.
In 1937, the business officially transformed into Economy Candy. Since then, the store has offered both old-time and modern-day favorites. Bring back the candy buttons, PEZ, and Abba Zaba bars!
