Gourmet popcorn store opens in Girard

GIRARD, Ohio (WYTV) – A new popcorn business opened in downtown Girard this week.

Karma Korn Poppery is located on W. Liberty Street across from Daffin’s Chocolates.

The store stocks 52 types of popcorn from fruity flavors, to garlic parmesan, to bacon cheddar. Each bag is just $5.

Owner Melanie Ritchie said there wasn’t a gourmet popcorn store in the area, so she decided to get into the business herself.

“We would travel all over to get popcorn. We’d drive to Pittsburgh, Medina, Cuyahoga Falls, everywhere just to try out some popcorn and we decided, ‘Why aren’t we doing this?'”

Karma Korn plans to sell gift baskets, get involved with fundraisers and even sell its popcorn in places like coffee shops.

The store is open Monday through Friday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
