The big news is that Sugar Doll is for sale. I have enjoyed being a Downtown business owner since 2007 (2011 for Sugar Doll), and now retirement appeals to me. Owning a little shop had been a dream of mine since the early 1980s and the last ten + years have been so much fun. I’ve made dear friends, and seems like I’ve met nearly everyone in town. I’ve been able to contribute to so many community events and fundraisers. Downtown is blossoming, and it’s rewarding to be a part of that.
$49,000 includes inventory, fixtures (including the candy case), equipment, and training (how/where to order, packing candy, point-of-sale system, etc). Sugar Doll has a loyal and large number of steady customers and a good reputation in the community and beyond.
People have expressed dismay at this news. I am hoping I can sell it to someone who’ll keep it going (adding their own touches and changes, of course) for the benefit of our community. It would be sad just to liquidate.
We’re open for 2018! Our Christmas season was phenomenal. Those Blue Q socks just flew out the door and onto the feet of lucky giftees. So did the weird Finger Hands and Finger Monsters – go figure! I don’t quite get it, but am happy to satisfy the folks who do.
For the rest of January and as long as they’re in stock, BOGO on Christmas cards and the remaining Moonstruck Christmas truffles. Santas and a few Coconut Snowballs and the pretty Christmas Trees.
‘Tis the Season for busy stores, snowy roads, and no time! We’ve all been there… you grab a bouquet of flowers for your mom and a last-minute fruit basket for gramma as you throw together a dessert for the party you’re already late for.
Instead of giving an ordinary gift this Christmas, what if you could wow loved ones with something extraordinary?
Sugar Doll in Stevens Point offers unique, local chocolate year round with special Christmas themed truffles and bite-sized treats in December. Sugar Doll also offers various stationery items for all personalities to enjoy.
Stop by to talk with the owner, Mary, and see what we can offer to make your Christmas season a little easier!
