BANGOR - After three years of dealing with parking lot issues, Specialty Sweets has relocated, making the move for more space.
"I think it was something that we dreamed about from the day we took over ownership over at Stillwater, was moving to a bigger location where we could have more space for candy and more room for our family to grow as well," says president Eliza Butler.
Chocolate absorbs scents, ruling out renovations at the Stillwater location. So construction started in October, finally coming together last month.
"We worked a lot of extra hours of course, but Wade and Eliza were here, I don't even know if they went home some nights. It was kind of crazy," explains sales associate Kelly Hewins.
The venue isn't the only change - as the store is stocking up on a larger amount of product.
