Garrett Popcorn Shops

2011 was a popping year for Garrett Popcorn Shops®! In between hand-crafted batches of CheeseCorn and CaramelCrisp® and with the generosity of our customers, we ran charitable programs to support The HistoryMakers, A Silver Lining Foundation, Chicago Public Schools, The Boys & Girls Clubs, and Save the Children’s Japan Earthquake Tsunami Children in Emergency Fund.

In 2011, we were at Taste of Chicago, Magnificent Mile Lights Festival, Winter Wonderfest and around town at the Chicago Latino Film Festival. Garrett also partnered with hometown band, Wilco, to support support Jane Addams Hull House Association and to promote Wilco’s new album The Whole Love with a commemorative tin.

We expanded our Shops in 2011, including a move on November 21 from 2 West Jackson Shop to a more spacious location at 27 West Jackson. And on December 22, we opened our first stand-alone Shop at 737 East 87th Street. 87th Street was the tenth Shop to open in Chicago and the first to include a public arts project: Global Intellect by artist Rahmaan Statik. We grew internationally, too, with new Garrett Shops opening in Singapore, Malaysia and Hong Kong.

Garrett Popcorn Shops® would like to thank our fans and customers from around the world for a wonderful 2011. We wish you all a happy, healthy and prosperous 2012!

Celebrate Tin 2 Gallon

The wait is over! We’ve officially moved down the street to 27 West Jackson!

To celebrate, we’re offering our loyal fans complimentary treat-size bags of Chicago Mix from 10 a.m. until noon on Monday, November 14 at the 27 W. Jackson Shop. Also fans on Facebook can take advantage of an opening day special not available anywhere else.

The new Shop, more than double in size, features space inside for customers to wait more comfortably and better enjoy their popcorn experience. “In this economy we are especially excited to be growing and to solidify our deep Chicago heritage with this marquee Shop. Our focus remains to make our customers happier than ever,” says Steve Moreau, Director, Retail Operations & Development.

27 West Jackson is on the corner of Plymouth Court, less than one block west of the original location at 2 West Jackson.
