Horne's History: The Story As We Know It
''Are you a chain? Do you have a directory of locations? What ever happened to all those Horne's? These are some of the questions folks ask us via email. Sooooo.... here's our story, but we cannot be sure how much of it is fact or fiction.''

Located at the corner of Route 301
& Route 17 in Port Royal, Virginia

''Many years ago, (some of us can remember) the highways in the South were dotted with Stucky's. Mr. Horne was a candy salesman who made his living selling to all of those stores. Then one day, Stucky's decided to make their own candy, which in essence, gaveMr. Horne the boot. Well, what is a candy salesman to do? Mr. Horne opened up his own chain, fashioning it after Stucky's, selling gifts, gasoline, good food and, of course, candy. The headquarters was in Florida, and soon stores opened up along major roads headed North. Horne's and Stucky's thrived side by side.''

''With the construction of I-95 and similar highways, the former major North - South routes did not receive as much traffic and customers. Soon after, Horne's as a chain ceased to exist. The good news is some Horne's were still viable business locations, such as our home in Port Royal, VA, which remained open under independent ownership. There are a few up and down the east coast from Virginia to Florida. Yet, after years of independent owners, they have each undergone many changes, making each Horne's a unique experience. So that's it; that's our story and we're sticking to it. Believe it if you like. There is one thing that we know is true. Horne's in Port Royal, VA is unique and one of a kind!''
