Shop Small

Sweet Shopping

Downtown Hummelstown has an array of shops filled with handmade goods and unique treasures, and local owners who are eager to welcome visitors curious about their collections. Shop small at Toys on the Square with its impressive selection of screen-free toys and games. Their stock of unusual toys makes it a perfect place to find a gift for the child who already has everything. Rhoads Hallmark & Gift Shop’s impressive, 15,000-square-foot space is filled with home décor, greeting cards, soaps, candles, handbags, jewelry, clothing, and a marketplace of independently-owned and crafted products and snacks. Nan Gunnett & Co. features eclectic, handcrafted works from more than 200 artisans, jewelers, potters, and more. Pick up something for a special occasion at bill Maloney Men’s Wear and Tailor Shop, home to the area’s largest stock of suits, sport coats, shirts, pants, ties, and accessories for men.

Unique Eats

If you’ve made your way to the Hershey area to revel in chocolate glory, you’ll also want to visit Chocolates by Tina Marie for a selection of more than 30 small-batch artisan chocolates and retro candies. Fuel your visit with some finger-licking good food at this smokin’ barbeque joint, Forrest’s Feed Co., featuring savory upscale smoked meats smothered in homemade sauces. At Boro Bar & Grill, you can taste Central PA’s best hot wings (seriously, they won “Simply the Best” wings in Harrisburg Magazine’s 2018 reader poll) flavored with your choice of mix-and-match sauces and dry rubs. Proudly touting the title of best pizza in the Hershey area, Jo Jo’s Pizza and Restaurant offers a full menu of Italian delights and delivers to local Hershey hotels. Cool off at Rita’s Italian Ice with a signature “gelati,” a delightful layered treat of made-fresh-daily Italian Ice and rich, creamy custard.
