The Old Strand Emporium is the longest running retail store on The Strand.
Specializing in Texas foods and gifts, The Emporium offers fresh fudge, a deli, cold drinks and a large assortment of imported and domestic beers and Texas wines.
The Emporium has all the feel of an old-fashioned ice cream parlor and sandwich shop, with candy bins, hard-to-find cooking goods and sauces, and more.
And perhaps the best part? The people watching! Grab a snack or sandwich, and head outside to one of the Emporium's comfortable, convenient outdoor tables and watch The Strand in action. Quite simply, The Emporium is a Galveston institution not to be missed.
