The Bulk Store is a family-owned business that has spanned three generations. Originally opened in Livonia in the 80s, the store has moved and become a beloved part of the Downriver community. Digital Media Manager Julia Sikora shares, “Over our 31 years in Taylor, we’ve had the opportunity to connect with candy lovers and friends from all over Michigan, across the U.S., and even around the world! Perhaps most special, though, is seeing second-generation customers – who first visited The Bulk Store as children – bring their own families to shop and share the joy of being a kid in a candy store. We’re best known for our incredible candy selection that makes up more than half of our store. From old-fashioned nostalgia candies like Bonomo Taffy Bars and Mary Janes…to the latest trending products, like imported Nestle KitKat Bars, Freeze Dried Candy, and Novelty Sodas – there really is something for everyone! The rest of the store is stacked with the best variety of snacks, nuts, trail mixes, dried fruits, coffees, grains and flours, packaged spices, and more! Shoppers can also find everything they need for baking, candy-making, and party planning, including a fantastic assortment of sprinkles, sugars, baking chips, gift bags, and boxes, party favors, and piñatas!” New candy comes in every week to The Bulk Store, and most of the store’s availability can be ordered online.
