years ago, (some of us can remember) the highways in the South
were dotted with Stucky's. Mr. Horne was a candy salesman
who made his living selling to all of those stores.
Then one day, Stucky's decided to make their
own candy, which in essence, gave Mr.
Horne the boot. Well, what is a candy salesman to do? Mr.
Horne opened up his own chain, fashioning it after Stucky's,
selling gifts, gasoline, good food and, of course, candy. The
headquarters was in Florida, and soon stores opened up along
major roads headed North. Horne's and Stucky's thrived side
With the construction of I-95 and similar highways, the former
major North-South routes did not receive as much traffic and
customers. Soon after, Horne's as a chain ceased to exist.
The good news is some Horne's were still viable business locations,
such as our home in Port Royal, VA, which remained open under
independent ownership. There are a few up and down the east
coast from Virginia to Florida. Yet, after years of independent
owners, they have each undergone many changes, making each
Horne's a unique experience
So that's it; that's our story and we're sticking to it. Believe
it if you like. There is one thing that we know is true. Horne's
in Port Royal, VA is unique and one of a kind! Come by for
