This place apparently closed down a few months ago, because I read the note when I visited them in Charleston last week :) . We had been visiting this place since 2014 or 2015 and while it did get crowded sometimes, my family and I always enjoyed our visits here :) . Fantastic customer service and amazing items were bought here :) . I hope the owners are doing alright and I wish them well :) .

Our teen daughter loved the store And the sales on Black Friday were awesome! Nostalgic candies, ice cream, old time items, and tons of moon pie items - food, t-shirts, etc galore! Fun place - highly recommend!

I haven't had a moon pie sundae in ages and this one was no disappointment! My last trip to Charleston was years ago and though I remembered my excursion capped off by a magnificent time on Market St, I did not recall service as pristine as that received this weekend. The Moon Pie store has a huge assortment of its namesake and tons of vintage candies. I wish there was more ice cream to choose from but the young curly haired chap humored me and mixed their cappuccino and "graham central" ice cream.

I visit MoonPie every year when I come to Charleston. However, this year things were horrible. An African American male served my family ice cream and then proceeded to sit down while trying to have a conversation with us. Normally this would have been okay, but the rest of the staff seemed to be struggling with the multitude of customers as well as stocking the refrigerator. I asked him if he should help and he laughed and said he was on kitchen duty so he didn't need to help the other workers.
Once he caught wind that I was not in the mood to chat (and that my children did not want him pestering them), he went to the sales floor where I saw him grab a beach bag and take to the back.
Upon arrival to the ice cream shop, I saw him shut the register and then place a few dollars into the tip jar. I was almost certain he was stealing but he looked so confident that I did not think anything of it at the time...
I did not know that Moon Pie was an organization that leaves the staff to struggle alone. I may not return after this incident.

The store is jam packed with all sorts of nostalgic things and super cute apparel. The items are a tad bit over priced, but we expected that before visiting. :) We were thrilled to find ice cold RC Cola in bottles and all of the different moon pie flavors to purchase as souvenirs for family members.

They run a video. Just a regular store really. But they definitely advertise. They do give out free samples out front. My nephew bought a root beer. Otherwise not really that interesting of a store.

I stopped in to check this shop out and look for a few souvenirs to take back to our kids who weren't on the trip with us. I was greeted and helped by a friendly and funny clerk. He was a great help, and for whatever reason gave me 20% off my purchase, which was so kind and such a nice surprise. Go there!
