Candy Castle in Lexington Is Closing
A candy shop in the northwest suburbs of Boston is calling it a day after more than three decades in business.
According to an article in the Lexington Minuteman, Candy Castle on Mass. Ave. in the center of town is closing today, citing a proposed rent increase of 40 percent from the new owners of the building that makes the business "unsustainable." The article says that owner Paul Clancy and his wife will sell everything today at a discount until it is all gone. Candy Castle first opened its doors 34 years ago, offering everything from jelly beans to fudge to old-fashioned candies and much more.
The address for Candy Castle is 1853 Massachusetts Avenue, Lexington, MA, 02420.
