A candy store called Sugar opened in Proctor Thursday. I checked in by phone on opening day with owner Donna Schramm, a North End resident, who opened the shop that sells old-fashioned candy in a tiny space at 3901 N. 27th St.
And, no, you’re not reading incorrectly. This is the second old fashioned candy store to open recently in Proctor. Jubilee Cupcakes & Vintage Candy, a cupcake-candy store that used to be called Sweet Things, opened July 23. C.R. Roberts wrote about Jubilee here.
(Note to dentists: if you’re looking to set up shop, you might consider Proctor.)
I don’t have a die-hard candy obsession, and when I do, I usually go to the the Johnson Candy Company for truffles, but the store sounds like a neat place to take your favorite daughter, niece, sister, girlfriend, or to indulge your 1970s child infatuation with Flicks. It’s a prettied up Willy Wonka décor. Click “more” to read more about Sugar, and to see a few pictures of the shop. Read more »
