A local sweet shop in Hagerstown will soon close its doors after 30 years serving the community.
Cindy’s Sweets and DeLite-ful Treats has been operating at the Valley Mall since 2010. From cake truffles, candies, decorated cakes, to an assortment of cupcakes, the potato candy is one of the hot items at the colorful pink store.
Owner Cynthia Long says the store started off with cake decorating and candy making supplies. She says she couldn’t have done it without the support of her employees and long time customers.
“Losing my employees and the connection that you build as a family together, but yet at the same time it’s sweet because I’m going to have my time back with my family and that is the number one thing that I’ve given up all of these years working six days a week,” she said.
“We’re thankful that now she has some time to now enjoy one of her own cupcakes,” said Chambersburg resident Alan Mathna.
The store is currently offering a discount. 65% off all cake decorating and candy making supplies. Customers will still be able to come in until June 30th when the store will officially close at 8 p.m.
