Specialty Sweets has decided to call it a day on its downtown Bangor location, as of this Saturday January 19th. Have no fear though, they will remain open at their main location at 36 Springer Drive out by the mall. In a recent article in the Bangor Daily News, owners Eliza and Wade Butler said it was a necessary step to ensure the future of the business as a whole.

We have really put a lot of thought into this decision and it is just right for our family, our employees and the overall health of our business.

Folks won't see much of a change in availability, as all of their products were made at the flagship store out by the mall. And, they will continue to maintain the downtown space on some level, as they use the upstairs of the soon-to-be former shop as rental space for events.

It's not always a bad thing when businesses consolidate like this. A lot of times folks can find that they don't necessarily increase their customer base, and instead end up dividing their business between the separate locations, which could be the case here. But again, if you've grown to love their amazing array of candies, fudges, gourmet popcorns, etc., you'll still find them all at their Springer Drive location.

Great....now all I want is some fudge.
