... A LOVE OF CANDY & PACKAGING ...

Sugar Sugar opened in October 2009, just in time for the biggest candy holiday of the year, Halloween. The initial concept and creation being the brain child of Joni Wheeler, professional candy appreciator and style mavis extraordinaire. It quickly became a neighborhood favorite, and in no time Joni was in need of some help, on the sales floor and with attention to packaging and presentation. Enter, Tracy Holy, friend to Joni and a bit of a decor and packaging crackerjack in her own right. With these two at the helm, this sugar ship sailed into the hearts of parents and kids alike, making the stop at the corner candy store a sweet delight!

Tracy bought this 600 square feet of sugar bliss in March of 2014, and has since added her own whimsical style elements to the shop, curated a candy selection that ranges from retro favorites and locally made treats, to a carefully selected array of bean-to-bar chocolate that would make any connoisseur truly relish. But she didn't stop there, adding an online option to ordering some of the store best sellers and packaged boxes & gifts promises succulent goodness and exquisite packaging to everyone outside of the Minneapolis borders. Now, I call that a sweet job!
