Amid all the holiday-season hoopla this month, a new Napa retailer quietly opened for business downtown.
Boom, formerly a barber salon owned by Paul and Leilani Slack of nearby Bloom Creative Hair Design and Art Gallery and the cooperative Slack Collective Art Studios and Gallery around the corner, has been reinvented as a candy shop where customers can find classic wrapped sweets like Charleston Chews, Pop Rocks and Blow Pops.
Other nostalgia brands like Mary Janes (10 cents) are also among the merchandise assortment, but Paul Slack said he'll also carry 21st-century candies, many of which are shipping to the Napa store this week.
