Specialty Sweets consolidating on Springer Drive

Written by

BANGOR - Part of a downtown Bangor business will remain open following the consolidation of their two locations.

Specialty Sweets will be closing its downtown Bangor location in the coming days but will remain open in their Springer Drive location, next to the Christmas Tree Shop.

 

Co-owner Liza Butler said they hoped the downtown location would have been a more "hands-off" operation for her family but that never materialized.

 

Butler said the couple wants to remain focused on the one larger location on Springer Drive that houses both the kitchen and retail space.

 

"It's a beautiful store. We have 4,000 square feet here and a huge kitchen. It's where we make everything and it just ... it's our home,"  she said.

 

Butler said that the upper room at Specialty Sweets downtown will remain open for rental for private functions and events.
