the north face arctic parka Charlie’s Sweet Stop to open on Station Road in Belmont on August 31 with an array of classic treats available
The premises, which is named after her grandson and was previously used as an office, is located next to Pet Stop which will continue to be operated by the family.
“There’s been a lot of excitement,” Lisa said. “We had the nursery around the corner visit the pet shop and when they were leaving I invited them to look at the sweet shop.
Pick ‘n’ mix, retro jars, ice cream, sweet carts for hire, party bags, boxes of gift chocolates and an American section will all be held in the throwback store.
Lisa said she is “really excited” to finally open the business after contemplating the idea for a year.
“I’m really fat now though,” she laughed. “I’ve told myself I have to try everything in case a customer asks a question. But I’m really looking forward to it. I love working with the public, the village is such a friendly area.”
The jovial business owner added: “Already I’ve had one customer who rang and said she’s flying to Dubai on the Wednesday and asked could we open on the Tuesday and open a day earlier. Her children are all grown up but they just love pick and mix.”
