How long has it been since Lockport had a candy store?
I really don't know, since I moved away in l967 and
just returned last year. However, I do remember going
to a candy store on the north side of Main Street, not
far from the big bridge in the mid l960's. It was so
much fun to go in and look at all the sweets lined up
behind glass. I particularly liked the round flat mints
that came in different colors and flavors and the owner
would let me buy one or two at a time, which she put into
a small white bag for me to take with me. What a treat
On Saturday, December 5th, Pinky Sweets Candy Shop
opened up at Windsor Village on Stevens Street. They
offered a free bag of treats to the first twenty
customers. I was lucky enough to be one of the first
displays of candy on the walls, tables and shelves
So much to choose from! Ohhhhh......I was surprised
to see SKY BARS, which brought back happy memories from
my childhood. It was fun to break a Sky Bar into four
parts, each section had a different filling: either caramel,
vanilla, peanut or fudge. Now I can do that again!
PINKY SWEETS will be open Tuesdays and Wednesday from
ten a.m. until six p.m., Thursdays and Fridays from ten
a.m. until eight p.m. and Saturdays from ten a.m. until
four p.m. They offer a wide variety of all kinds of
candies. I am sure there is something for everyone!

stockings, PINKY SWEETS can help!
