A traditional sweet shop in Boston has been taken over by a new manager who is hoping to up the sales with new imports.
Joseph Wall took over at Traditional Sweets and Treats, formerly Edwards Emporium, in Dolphin Lane, about two months ago, a few weeks after it closed.
He said he plans to make use of social media to promote his business, including having the option to order online.
The shop already stocks lots of traditional sweets such as bon bons, liquorice, eclairs, chocolate mice and more.
Mr Wall said: “There’s a lot of really old sweets, different liquorishes and pear drops.”
Mr Wall is also hoping to inject a bit of American style into his business.
He already stocks items such as Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, Hershey’s chocolate bars and for those who had them as children he can also import Lucky Charms.
He said: “I’m going to try and spread the net a bit more. I still want to keep it a traditional shop as well. I don’t want to change it, just add to it.”
Mr Wall, who said his history is ‘long and colourful, like some of his sweets’, has lived in Boston for five-and-a-half years.
He originally trained as a teacher and spent a large portion of his life blind.
