Costas back to making candy, storefront yet to open

Costas Candies is one step closer to reopening, and the owners are finally back in the kitchen making candy. Over the weekend, Julie and Grant Schultz were back to pour the first batch of toffee in the renovated kitchen in their downtown location on 100 block of North Cedar Avenue. Julie Schultz said the first batch of caramels have also been wrapped.

“The front of the store is not yet done and we have to make candy for a big order for a good full week,” Julie Schultz said, adding that the candy currently being made is not for general sale to the public. “Then we’ll be making for more orders, but also to sell.”

Schultz said she is hopeful the store will reopen to the public in two weeks. (Photo courtesy of Costas Candies)
