Entering the shop is like stepping back in time with colourful displays of chocolate, pick n' mix selections and jars with hard boiled sweets all weighed out on a scales.
Mr Simms Olde Sweet Shoppe owner Betty Furlong says, 'The concept is based on good old fashioned friendly service with a smile along with a large range of quality sweets and chocolate products. Quality is paramount a lot of the Mr Simms range of sweets are made in the old fashioned way using open copper pans to produce the best possible flavour.
I am delighted to open a business in Wexford where I have spent all my life. It's great to be able to offer some employment however small. Quality sweets are an affordable luxury and let's face it we all need a little treat now and then!', added Betty.
Stocking a wide range of old fashioned sweets including bulls eyes, pear drops, clove drops and bon bons Mr Simms Olde Sweet Shoppe has a tasty choice for any palette.
