Lee’s Candy Kitchen in the Mill Falls Marketplace is about to get a little bigger! The shop, which is the oldest store in the Marketplace, has recently taken over the space next door and is doubling their floor space. The small space the store has occupied since 1984 had become a little too crowded, and was jam-packed with goodies, as well as customers lined up to buy them.
Owners Gerry and Kathy Fagan say that one of the goals is to create a little more space, re-expose the beautiful brick walls of the old mill building, and bring back the old-time charm of a traditional candy shop. They are also “very excited” about the store’s new centerpiece, a 40-foot U-shaped “Candy Corral,” which will feature over 200 gummy treats, sours, and other candy novelties in old-fashioned glass apothecary jars. The “Candy Corral” will be the largest candy counter in the Lakes region and will be a fun attraction for families to enjoy while visiting Meredith Village.
Lee’s Candy Kitchen will continue to carry fine chocolates and homemade fudge, and prides itself on carrying high-quality products that are “not made in China.” The store features New England made gourmet food products, as well as a beautiful line of YummyEarth organic treats.
The target date for the completion of remodeling is May 1st, but the shop will continue to be open for most of the renovation period, so that customers can get their sweet fix! Stop by and check out the homemade Easter bunnies, candy eggs, and chocolate-covered peeps! Happy Spring!
