Foy’s Halloween & Variety Store

Four generations of Foy's have operated Foy’s Halloween & Variety Store in Fairborn since 1929. The original store was a "Five and Dime", now Foy’s has 6 stores on Main St. in Fairborn. Of these, the Halloween & Variety, Adult Costume stores, and Rock-N-Roll Grill have year round hours. They also operate a Haunted Museum, Children's Costume Shop, and The Haunted House Store that's only open for special hours in October.

Foys Halloween Store

Foy’s Halloween & Variety transported me back in time to my youth (the 70's, yikes). The first thing to catch my eye was the volume and variety of candies they carry. Annie and Joan, both of whom have been with Foy's about 10 years, are very proud that the store offers something for every budget – even if your budget is just a dime!

Halloween Candy For the daring sweet tooth with deeper pockets, how about a dried cricket lollipop, salt and vinegar crickets, or chocolate covered insects. The Greene County Readers Choice Awards recently awarded Foy's 1st place in the Best Candy/Candy Store category. I was surprised to find Beemans, BlackJack, TeaBerry, and Clove gum, in addition to bulk candy sold by weight. You won't find a computer or bar code scanner here; every item is has its own price tag, even the registers are from yesteryear.

This Halloween if you’re in need of costumes, masks, props, party favors, balloons, scars, blood, fangs, nails, swords, daggers, wigs, you name it, they've got it! Foy’s rents costumes, helium, popcorn, cotton candy, and sno cone machines, skeletons, even a hearse! The selection is outta this world…
