Candy sales are up 3% this holiday season according to one local business. Matthew St. Jean, who co-owns Specialty Sweets on Stillwater Avenue with his wife, says they’re used to being busy, but not quite this busy. He says, “We have family members helping out every single day. We have sometimes my mom and dad driving. We have brothers and sisters that work out back making candy as well.” Every night, the couple works from when the store closes about 6pm to 1am the next day making candy.
