Confectionery store

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A confectionery store (more commonly referred to as a sweet shop in the United Kingdom, a candy store in North America, or a lolly shop[1] in Australia) sells confectionery and the intended market is usually children. Most confectionery stores are filled with an assortment of sweets far larger than a grocer or convenience store could accommodate. They often offer a selection of old-fashioned treats and sweets from different countries. Very often unchanged in layout since their inception, confectioneries are known for their warming and nostalgic feel.[2][3][4][5] The village of Pateley Bridge claims to have the oldest confectionery store in England.

Akisato Ritō's Miyako meisho zue (An Illustrated Guide to the Capital) from 1787 describes a confectionery store situated near the Great Buddha erected by Toyotomi Hideyoshi, then one of Kyoto's most important tourist attractions.[6]

In 1917, there were 55 confectionery shops in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, which had a population of 70,000 people.[7]
