How many times did you drive by or hear about Cherry Pie before realizing it wasn’t a bakery or dessert shop? The name may not ooze sex, but make no mistake; these locally-owned stores are all about providing fun for adventurous adults. According to Erik, the company’s general manager since opening in 2005, the idea has always been to create a store unlike any of its kind. “We often hear from customers how much they like the name and the overall look of our stores.” He adds, “We’ve worked hard to distinguish ourselves from typical “adult stores” beginning with our name, and so far it has been a success.” Both locations offer well-lit, spacious layouts that make shoppers feel completely at ease. Erik’s wife Christine, Cherry Pie’s visual merchandiser, explains why the welcoming nature of the store is so important, “The store is laid out with our customers in mind. They are able to browse where they feel most comfortable, which is very important.”
As you enter you’ll find candles & incense, couples books and games, and a great selection of quality lubricants & lotions. They also carry a large assortment of hilarious bachelorette party favors year-round. Glass cases display an impressive collection of contemporary tobacco accessories. Just beyond that you’ll find hundreds of intimate toys, from low-priced “basics” to high-end silicone products and everything in between. If you’re looking for movies, they offer thousands of adult titles starting at just $4.95 each. I commented to Erik on the amazingly low prices, to which he replied, “We’ve been hearing that for eight-plus years, and we’re proud to say we’ve kept them down despite a poor economy and significant cost increases.”
I would definitely recommend Cherry Pie to any friends seeking adult items. If you haven’t had a taste of the Cherry Pie experience, invite some fun-loving friends and stop by either location; it’ll be a blast! Both stores are open late 365 days a year. GOOGLE Cherry Pie for more information.
