Many visitors to the museum comment on how they remember coming into the store when they were children, and their favorite part was always the candy counter.
Reading through the museum guest book reveals visitors far beyond just Corona locals. There’s Taiwan, Canada, Florida, New Mexico, Holland, New Jersey, Idaho, Germany, Pennsylvania, Oregon, Texas, England, Washington, Wisconsin and Sweden all listed in within just a few months. And like all of us, they’re looking for some little meaningful memento to take back with them.
The company store once carried all of life’s necessities. Well, there won’t be liver pills, garter belts, or Levis, but t-shirts are definitely on the list along with a whole slew of unique Corona collectibles and "everything lemon.”
Managed by yet another talented volunteer, Shellie Norland has the stuff to find the odd and the beautiful to fill our shelves. The gift shop is trapping tourists daily with interesting items not to be found elsewhere.
