Even though I have been a realtor in Mission for 11 years and have lived here my whole life, there is always new things to find out about the area and businesses here. For example, there is a new candy store, The Candy Shack, located on 1st Ave. This store offers European candy and chocolate, as well as, ice-cream. It is a great place to take children to in these final days of summer. Also, near First Ave is Belles Sports. Located on James Street, this sports store not only sells hunting gear and fishing rods, but also fishing licenses.
