Imagine Gift Store is located in the historic Lyric Theater building in Warren, Rhode Island. The original two-story building was built in 1916 as the Lyric Theater. The theater originally featured a large marquee and more muted colors on the exterior. After WWII, as with smaller theaters all over the country, this cinema struggled against the larger chains which featured 10+ screens and modern amenities, and ticket sales dwindled. The theater was sold in the late 1970s and converted to retail use, first as an antique store then followed by the current gift store in the 1990’s.
Wanting to restore some of the theater’s forgotten splendor, it's playful spirit is now provided in the store. As you enter the now gift store, on your right hand side, you'll notice the ticket windows as well as a few old movie posters. After extensive renovations, Imagine Gift Store grew to be one of the largest gift stores in New England, winning numerous awards.
Imagine Gift Store is chock-full with new and old favorites from it's wide assortment of over 500 candies. Between the candies and a 1950’s themed ice cream parlor, you are guaranteed to satisfy any sweet tooth. Aside from the sweets, Imagine Gift Store wouldn’t really be a gift store without... well... Gifts! From the quirky, to the heartfelt, to the locally made Rhode Island merchandise and souvenirs, Imagine Gift Store has every gift you could ever think of for that special someone, or even yourself!
