Chaloner & Co.
Chaloner & Co. was originally opened in 1874 and is Michigan's oldest operating store. After careful renovation, Chaloner's was reopened in February of 2019. Today, you can visit Chaloner & Co. to find your favorite nostalgic candy, pick up a tasty cigar, or enjoy a bag of salty popcorn.
Located just west of the four corners in downtown Adrian, Chaloner & Co. has always been a special place. Once the main gathering spot for Adrian residents seeking news of the day, Chaloner’s is still a popular stop for shoppers looking for a fancy cigar, old-fashioned candy, or a fresh bag of popcorn.
Time changes most things, but at Chaloner’s, the past collides with the present. The character and atmosphere of Chaloner’s is almost beyond description. To walk across the creaking hardwood floor is like taking a step back in time.
To add to its nostalgia, the interior of Chaloner’s has changed very little throughout the years. Many of the old pipes, tobacco tins, and cigars that were once displayed in the front window, along with the numerous historic pictures and signs, still adorn the establishment today. It is, truly, one of a kind
