I was tasked at the last minute to make make cake pops for a party. I needed good quality chocolate in a hurry! I looked on line and found your store. I was elated to see that you not only carried Merckens chocolate but that you had a variety of colors as well. I drove the 40 minutes to the Bulk store. I was so happy with the service and the quality of the products! Thanks bulk store, you were truly a life saver!

Just wanted to let you know that each time I visit your store the service level is BEYOND compare. You don't have a survey on receipts to complete and I wanted to share my positive feedback back. These days most just fill something out to complain. GREAT JOB BULK STORE LADIES. You are appreciated.

I placed my order yesterday afternoon and my order arrived today in this afternoon's mail. I was completely surprised that it arrived so soon. Everything is tasty, fresh and as described. I only wish I lived closer so I could come in personally and shop. Looking over your website is like taking a walk in the past. So many candies from my childhood! Thanks so much for posting the ingredients of the trail mixes online It helped me choose the items I wanted to purchase. I'll be a regular customer from now on.

We were preparing for our wedding and wanted to have a candy bar for our guests. We found the Bulk Stores website and decided to drive the hour to the store. We found everything we needed and it was all priced very reasonably! Our colors are orange and green and we actually found many types of candies to fit that color scheme. The owner helped us several times and answered all of our questions. It was very worth the drive so our kids could pick out what they wanted in person. Thanks for everything!

Everyone was great and very helpful. I was trying to determine if my purchase would arrive in time if shipped to my house or if I should have it shipped to where I was travelling to to use it. Very helpful in determining when it would arrive where and it arrived exactly when told it would. Thank you!

Just a quick note to let you know that our candy order arrived in fine and fresh form in plenty of time for Valentines Day. The shopping experience was, as in the past, easy and pleasurable.

We are repeat customers and are absolutely in love with the sugar-free candies from The Bulk Store. We've tried multiple flavors and haven't found one that wasn't delicious. My husband is a diabetic and I no longer have to worry about him eating 'real' candy with sugar. He likes what we get from The Bulk Store. Not only is their product superb, the customer service is outstanding. Whoever answers the phone is always friendly, the order process is smooth and the delivery is quick. We can't ask for anything better!

I needed a special piñata for an important event and found the perfect piñata at The Bulk Store website. I called to order the piñata and my shopping experience was very enjoyable. The employees were friendly and very helpful. The piñata was shipped and I received very prompt delivery. The price was very reasonable. If I ever need something special for my event I would definitely use The Bulk Store again. I just wish that I could visit the store but I live in Pittsburgh, PA. But my shopping experience online was quick, easy, helpful and friendly service was provided, and I was able to get the perfect piñata for my event. Thanks to The Bulk Store.

I came to your store after a recommendation from a friend about how great your store was for getting all kinds of candy. She was right! I drove over an hour to get to your store and initially from the outside thought it would be too small to have much of anything inside. When I entered, I noticed it was bright and clean and everything was well organized. There was definitely more in that store than I anticipated and I purchased everything I needed for an upcoming parade we were participating in as well as more! The quality was great and the selection was better than I anticipated. I even forget to pick up a few items to decorate some cupcakes for an upcoming soccer event and I received them via UPS very quickly and well packaged. Thank you and I will be back again!

I was looking for different colored lemon drop type candies for my daughter's wedding, to use as wedding favors, and found The Bulk Store had a great selection, and at very reasonable prices. I was very impressed with their customer service: they responded quickly to my emails, had my order ready to be shipped before they even had my credit card info., and even sent me generous samples at no charge!! The package came quickly and the candies are great. I would definitely recommend the Bulk Store to anyone.

I was really happy with The Bulk Store. I was looking for jimmies for a project and they had a great selection of colors and good pricing. I was needing them for a project I was doing the next week. I ordered them on Sunday and received the order on Wednesday. I thought shipping was going to be outrageous but it was very reasonable. They only charge you what it cost to mail. I would definitely order from them again :) Thank you for your great service!

I used to frequently purchase from a bulk food store on the east side in Macomb county. When we moved, I was disappointed to find out that there is not even one good bulk food store in northwest Oakland county. I found the website for The Bulk Store and was immediately impressed, but Taylor is over an hour away from me. I was so impressed with the website that I called to ask if they accepted phone orders, and I was happy to learn that they do! I do creative cakes and cupcakes and always need decorative sugars, sprinkles, specific candies, and other things that you can't find in the regular grocery stores (or even some cake supply shops). The Bulk Store had everything I needed. They are happy to package up as much or as little as you need of any item. Shipping was super-fast and everything arrived in perfect condition. I will definitely order from The Bulk Store again in the future. Thanks again!

You guys are awesome! Great selection of hard to find candy, great prices and great service. I would recommend you to anyone needing large supplies of candy or treats and look forward to using you again. Good companies are hard to find these days and The Bulk Store is definitely one of them.

When I called the Bulk Store to place my order the person who helped me (Steve) was very friendly and helpful. I received my order a few days later with no problems. We will definitely be ordering more of our favorite candy treats from the Bulk Store. I have purchased candy from some other online bulk stores and they were horrible to deal with. The Bulk Store was a great experience!

We needed a source of bulk candy to fashion our Valentine's Day gift bags for two daughters and four grandchildren...in Connecticut! The Bulk Store was a wonderful find on the internet. We were very pleased with the personalized customer service we received on the phone, and the prompt delivery by UPS of wonderful candy.

WE ARE A LONG TERM CARE FACILITY AND DECIDED TO CELEBRATE THE SUPER BOWL WITH A "CHAMPION OF CARE" WEEK. THE BULK STORE WAS THERE WHEN WE DECIDED TO FILL JARS WITH CHOCOLATE FOOTBALLS, YELLOW AND RED CANDIES ( STEELERS & CARDINAL COLORS) TO PASS OUT TO THE NIEGHBORING HOSPITALS AND DOCTOR OFFICES. FOR WHAT EVER REASONS, OTHER COMPANIES TURNED US DOWN. SO THANKS FOR HELPING US OUT AND BELEIVING IN US.

I discovered The Bulk Store a few years ago, but I remember that first time like it was yesterday. Most bulk stores I've been in only have one or two items that interest me, but as I walked down the aisles for the first time at The Bulk Store in Taylor, I remember the nearly overwhelming feeling of awe that grew into intense anticipation as I took in the huge variety of all the mouth watering goodies.
All the good things that everyone else has mentioned in their testimonials is 100% true, the friendly service, cleanliness, freshness and availability of products, etc!
I love all the flavored coffees they offer as well and the fact that you can grind it yourself, and my kids want me to mention that they like that there is always free samples of the snack mixes!
I love this store, and I wish the owners all the success in the world!

I just wanted to thank you again for your help with finding the perfect colors for our wedding cookies. I also wanted to share a picture of the cookies that we made for the wedding and let you know that we used about 2 lbs. of sugar for 600 cookies. Just thought you might like to know this for future reference. The pictures were taken by Sara Jayne Photography from Minnesota. Thanks again!

I've been shopping at your store since it opened many years ago. It is the best bulk store around! It is always clean, the employees are always helpful and very friendly, and the selection of products is excellent! The toasted sesame sticks are one of my favorites and the selection of sugar free candies is also good. Keep up the great work!

Stopped in The Bulk Store for the first time and must say it brought back many fine memories of candies I had as a child. I picked up a few goodies for my son for him to experience and expect to make it a regular stop. Everyone was so nice.

Now this is what I call a true bulk food store! You actually have everything from soup to nuts. I have never yet to see a bulk food store with not only the best variety but the quality and freshness that you maintain in your store. Your website is outstanding and is pictured as it is in the store. Every time that we have been in your store it is always clean and impressive. My wife loves to come here for a lot of her baking need for the holidays and I come often to buy her favorite, Milk chocolate and coconut hay stacks. If you haven't been here, you have to stop and see for yourself. There is something for everyone. Bring the kids or grandkids and believe me, you will all be like a kid in a candy store!

I really enjoy your store. I like the fact that I can buy just a small amount of things, especially the spices by the front door. However, I did find that the bulk unbleached white flour is more expensive in your store than at Kroger. Which bummed me out because I hate Kroger and I love shopping in your store!! Yet, this won't stop me from shopping with you as I love the variety and the convenience your store offers and I believe in shopping at locally owned small businesses. (It's tough out there).

After finding out that our favorite bulk store was closed, we were sure we'd never find another one near our home. I searched the internet and I was so happy to find The Bulk Store in Taylor, not more than 15 minutes from my house!!! I visited it just the other day and can't wait to go back. I need my candy fix!

I have been a customer of your store for many years. You always have what I am looking for. I am always on a mission to find that special item for what I am making. I do enjoy the sugar free items.

I love your store! First of all, you're not too far away from home. I love to come there to get Tootsie Roll Pops I like it because I can get only the flavors I want and they are always fresh. The prices are reasonable.
July 4, 2008
I really enjoy bringing the kids in just before a sleep over. I have been doing it for years. They all get to pick out their favorite candy and what better place to bring them to. To me, it brings back fond memories of the "Penny Candy Store". Keep up the good work !

We like The Bulk Store because we enjoy watching our granddaughter pick out candy until we tell her she has enough. It's close to home and she can choose a variety without having to buy a large amount of each type. I must confess that I really like all varieties of malted milk balls too!

We stumbled upon this store online after realizing that most places that sell bulk candy have been long gone and after speaking with the kind owner over the phone we made the drive from Northville for my son to pick up some tasty treats! The owner couldnt have been more helpful and friendly and we enjoyed reminiscing with our son on some of the "old school" selections that we used to enjoy as children. This store truly has it all from the candy to the party favors to everything in between. We will definitely be making the drive again!! Thank you again for all your help and we look forward to seeing you again soon!

I was interested in possibly purchasing some of the hard shelled chocolate sea shells. I wanted to use the sea shells for an anniversary favor with a beach/luau theme. I just wanted to thank you for your prompt reply and help, it is so refreshing "working" with such a professional and courteous person. Also, when I called yesterday, I spoke to Sharyn. She too was great! You are lucky to have a great team. When we received our package they arrived in perfect condition. Thank you so much for ALL of your time and work! My mother received the package for me and she can't stop raving about how cute and perfect they are. Again, thank you for being so kind and professional.
