There’s a brand new shop that just opened in Barrington this weekend that stocks its shelves with sugar and sweets.  Take one step inside and, trust me, you’ll feel just like a kid in a candy shop.

Sweet Spot Candy Shop in Barrington, Illinois

Five year old Aiden Krumpett from Lake Barrington walked into the brand new Sweet Spot candy shop today and his eyes lit up like bottle rockets. A real life Charlie Bucket, he darted from shelf to shelf on the hunt for Wonka Bars.

Their sweet location is easy to spot, right at Lake Cook Road and Hager.  Their swirling candy stick sign out front might as well read “Calling all Kids”.  And no need to worry about scary singing Oompa Loompas.  You’ll only find friendly folks inside to help with your shopping.  Whether it’s retro sweets or the latest candy craze, if you want it, store manager Doreen Thomas says they’ll do their best to track it down, tout suite.

  1. I would like to bring some seniors to your candy store as an outing.

    I see you have steps at the front door. Does this mean no scooters?
