LEVEL: Medium Crossword by Myles Mellor and Susan Flanagan life & arts the highland park landmark | January 25, 2018 | 17 Nearly three decades of sweets at Goodies Margaret Tazioli Freelance Reporter Candies, fine chocolates, gourmet foods, gift baskets and student survival boxes ship out of the Highland Park-owned Goodies every single day. “We send out thousands of baskets all over the country,” said Lisa Meitus, one of the store’s owners. “My FedEx driver tells us that we’re the largest shipper in Highland Park. And that’s how we survive — or thrive, I should say.” In the store itself, kids pop in after school on a nice day or families might stop in for a treat on Saturday afternoons. People come in for hostess gifts and phone-in orders for sympathy gifts, business gifts or new baby gifts. High-school students might come in for a gift for their coaches or for a birthday present. The store sells a lot of “get well” and “welcome to the neighborhood” baskets, too. The store has operated out of Highland Park for 28 years. Robin Roth, Carrie Goodman and Lisa Meitus are the three coowners. Meitus has been an owner for 10 years and Contact Goodies 652 Central Ave., Highland Park 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday- Saturday (847) 432-0652 Roth and Goodman both joined the team about a year ago. “My youngest child was starting kindergarten and it sort of just fell into my lap,” Meitus said. “My father-in-law knew one of the original owners. She wanted to retire and he said, ‘You should talk to my daughter-in-law.’” A lawyer by training, Meitus said she worked in a similar candy store all throughout high school and college. “And so, this candy store, for me, was a great step,” Meitus said. It’s a candy store, but it’s a place less focused on consuming and more focused on giving. It’s a place people go looking for gifts more often than to self-indulge. They gift wrap, provide cards and deliver. “I would say 90 percent of the things we sell are gifts that people are giving to other people,” Meitus said. “We do parties, and people do come in here to get their chocolate or candy fix, but most of what we sell is gifts. I’ve been blown away by the generosity of some of the people. It’s really amazing.” The signature assortment basket, filled with toffee, chocolate-covered pretzels, Oreo bark, almond bark, M&M bark, caramel marshmallows and other chocolates is Goodies’ topselling gift. The English toffee and chocolate-covered pretzels are individual favorites. The store combines different treats from different vendors in unique arrangements. “We buy from all different places,” Meitus said. “We have local chocolatiers and we buy from different chocolate vendors all around.” The idea came when one of the original owners was visiting her daughter in the hospital. Meitus said. “[The original owner] saw a cart going by with gifts on it and she didn’t like the way that the gifts looked. She thought, ‘I can do better than that.’ And so, she decided to open up a basket store.” Thus, Goodies was born and has thrived in the same location, on Central Avenue between Green Bay Road and Second Street. They’re a big supporter of the community: all the owners are Highland Park residents who support the schools and local charities. It’s open Monday through Saturday 10 a.m.- 5 p.m. STEM CELL MAGNET THERAPY Now Covered by Blue Cross Blue Shield Offered by Get Natural Relief from Arthritis & Soft Tissue Pain Relief, Regenerate, Rejuvenate QUALIFIED CANDIDATES: • Diagnosed with Osteoarthritis • Have a Soft Tissue Injury • Want a Non-Steroidal Option • Want to Avoid Surgery • Other Interventions have Failed CLINICAL STUDY: 92.5 % PATIENT SATISFACTION* The interior of Goodies, located at 652 Central Ave., Highland Park.
