Bon Bon's Candy House now open in Brentwood North Shopping Center
Bon Bon's Candy House is now open in the Brentwood North Shopping Center. After being in the Parkcrest Shopping Center since 2002, Bon Bon's has relocated their candy kitchen and retail sales to 2720 S. Glenstone, in between Gracie's Bridal and Vivo Salon. Owner Bonnie Nolen is hoping that the newly renovated shopping center, owned by Jared Enterprises, and all of the popular locally owned tenants already occupying the center, will create a significant increase in traffic for her store. "September is a great time for moving a candy shop," says Nolen. "We are already starting preparing for our busy holiday season. Corporate sales generate most of our income for the year, and we start early on custom chocolate orders using custom branded logos. Those take a little more time, so we are ready to get started in our new space."
This is a soft opening for Bon Bon's. Bonnie has one more surprise up her sleeve before the location is completely ready. "We are going to have a chocolate dispensing machine delivered this week. It goes behind our new "Candy Bar," where kids and adults can stop by any time to create and decorate their own chocolate candy bar. It will cool while you wait, and then you get to take it home with you." A grand opening and ribbon cutting will be announced soon.
