Hello June, and hello summer vacation! Our hours have officially been changed to our summer hours; we are open from 8-5 on the weekdays and 9-4 on Saturday. If you’re looking for a candy shop, road trip, this summer–we vote you head to Anoka! Not only are we here, but so are amazing antique shops, great little artsy boutiques, a dog-friendly brewery, and awesome cafe’s, coffee shops, and restaurants. Parking is super simple (and free), and everything is within easy, walking, distance.

If you are looking to do a summer road trip, and want to stay in the state–check out this super cool list of 30 Phenomenal Candy & Chocolate Shops in Minnesota. You could hit a couple each weekend, or take a week, to see if you can do all 30. (If you DO this…will you PLEASE take lots of pics along the way!? We’d love to see!) We posted a quick video below so you can tour the shop before stopping in. (Just FYI, A TON of our candy has changed since this video. :) ) If you’d like more information about what all is in Anoka…check out Discover Anoka’s website; there, you’ll find information on upcoming events, the shops and services offered around town, and photo galleries of our favorite, little, town.
