Central Pop, a popcorn shop specializing in flavored popcorn, has closed. It was open for three years and offered marshmallow treats and flavored nuts in addition to over 40 flavors of popcorn. The owners were inspired to open the shop after they moved from the Midwest, where popcorn stores are more common. The business closed in April. It was located at 1929 E. Ray Road, Ste. 6, Chandler. www.centralpopalicious.com
