Who loves this Charleston institution? Our beloved Peanut Shoppe on Capitol Street was established in 1950 as a Planter’s Peanut Shop. It’s still run today by the same family that opened it all those years ago. A true Charleston Tradition!

The building occupies part of the first floor of the former Charleston National Bank.

Kim Moore wrote to us on Facebook and sent us these pictures from back in the day.

Her mom worked there once upon a time!

Now it’s home to some sweet treats! Roger Samples gave us these photos…

Mr. Peanut stands guard…

In more places than one…

Who’s getting hungry?
