Greetings from the Little Popcorn Shop! Bill Wakefield here - and my first post to my Facebook Page.

I would like to publicly thank Eric Senske who had the foresight five years ago to set up this Facebook Page on my behalf. He also graciously maintained the Page to keep it family-friendly. Thank you Eric!

During these five years, this Page has grown to over 10,000+ likes. I am overwhelmed by your support and the interest you've shown over the decades in this narrow alleyway store.

In the days ahead, I look forward to sharing interesting trivia and historical tidbits about the store, as well as local Wheaton news I hope you will find interesting. I'm also planning to have Popcorn Shop memorabilia available for you, which has been very popular in the store - just in time for Christmas! Stay tuned.

So, the next time you're in Wheaton, be sure to stop in and say "hello". It will be good to see you again.

Time to make more popcorn.

With appreciation,

- Bill
