3 Fun Gift Shops to Explore in Chandler

Discover Fun Gifts and More at These Shops in Chandler

Are you on the hunt for the perfect gift? Luckily, there are a number of fantastic shops near our Chandler apartments that feature a number of offerings. Here are a few of our favorites.


The YoYoFactory is the world leader in design and production of these classic toys. These toys have stood the test of time because the ways to play with them are limited only by one's imagination. YoYoFactory offers an array of different types of yo-yos from the simplest to the most streamlined for doing tricks. Shoppers can see staff demonstrating various yo-yos and try them out for themselves. This is a seriously fun place to shop! What’s more, you will be supporting a local industry.

Sweeties Candy of Arizona

Sweeties Candy of Arizona is the largest candy store in the state. This candy store sells individually wrapped candy and in bulk. With such a huge selection, you’re likely to find your favorites, including some international candies. This candy emporium also takes pride in stocking candy brands from the past. It is a great, nostalgic place for all generations to share the candies they loved growing up.

Samurai Comics

A successful chain of local stores, Samurai Comics is right here in Chandler. You can explore comics, coloring books, manga, magazines, and graphic novels. The shops also sell action figures, apparel, collectable cards, models, novelties, plushies, puzzles, and posters. For tabletop gamers, find RPG dice, manuals, modules, and miniatures. They even have materials for educators and, for the adventurous, a blind box. 

Of course, there are many other interesting shops in and around Chandler that are fun for everyone. You can have a meal and play some trivia, for example. If you would like to make our Chandler apartments home, contact us for a tour of our community.
