As we enter the most beautiful time of year here in the Triangle, the folks at Cherry Pie are already getting ready for the holidays. Erik, the company’s general manager since 2005 explains, “We see a lot of new faces around the holidays, and we love helping folks pick out uniquely personal gifts for that special someone in their lives.” Erik’s wife Christine adds that, “We’ve also got our Anniversary Sale on the Saturday following Thanksgiving, so there’s party planning to be done, which I definitely look forward to.”

Both locations offer discreet parking, a laid-back atmosphere and a friendly, well-informed sales staff that work hard to ensure you enjoy your experience. Upon entering you’ll find literature, couples games and candles & incense to help you “set the mood.” They also carry quite an assortment of adult party favors; pecker whistles, straws, candy & cake pans as well as risqué greeting cards. Display cases contain a wide variety of tobacco accessories, with everything from rolling papers to local glass and vaporizers. Christine, who is Cherry Pie’s visual merchandiser, says a lot of thoughtful planning went into creating their ambience, “We created both stores with our customers in mind. We want them to relax, unwind and have fun.”Venture further and you’ll find “TOYLAND,” featuring everything from low-priced “basics” to high-end brands such as LELO, Tantus and We-Vibe. They also carry a nice selection of inexpensive lingerie and hosiery. Both locations offer plenty of adult DVD titles to purchase or rent, starting at just $4.95 each. I couldn’t help but notice great prices throughout the store. “It’s a big part of our appeal, and we’re proud to say we’ve kept prices down despite a slow economy and cost increases,” says Christine.

Both stores are open late 365 days a year, so if you haven’t “had a piece lately,” grab some friends and check them out. GOOGLE Cherry Pie for more information.
