AN OLD-FASHIONED confectionary emporium evoking childhood memories of giant jars of boiled sweets and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory has opened its doors at Hatton Shopping Village.
With more than 230 jars of old-fashioned sweets and making 23 varieties of homemade fudge on the premises, The Sweet Shop at Hatton opened for business in July in what was previously Hatton Toffee Shop.
For Debbie Bloxham who co-owns and runs the shop with business partner Ron Vizard and makes the fudge with Ron’s wife Angela, taking on the new business was her own childhood dream.
“I always wanted to run my own business and I knew it had to do with creating something around a sense of nostalgia,” said mum of four Debbie from Balsall Common, who left her job as a purchasing manager with an automotive company to launch the venture.
“At first I thought about an old-fashioned tea shop in Warwick which has its own sense of history, but when this opportunity arose, I felt it was right for me at that time and going into partnership with Ron, with his financial and business experience, has helped me to fulfil my ambition”
