I Want I Candy

Shaneshia Davidson, owner of the I Candy Craft Bar, will be holding a grand opening this Friday at her new location at 463 Commerce St. The business began online, but she transitioned to a physical store last year; she moved to the current location in January of this year. The move has yielded dividends in the form of increased visibility and commerce: “It’s better as far as getting more business,” Davidson said. “Where it was located (before) wasn’t like a common area where people would just find me on their own. Where I am now has a higher traffic volume, especially being right next to the bank.”


The good folks over at Buff City Soap at 661 Hwy. 12 W. are growing ever closer to their grand opening on April 16. They are located right next to ALDI, and they will be offering free soap samples Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. They will be offering a wide variety of handmade specialty soaps for men and women, bath bombs, and more, with choices such as Island Nectar, Raspberry Vanilla, Cherry Almond, Sour Candy, and many more scents.


The 509 Main Street location of Gon Thai will be closing temporarily as they prepare to be taken over by new management. Owner Kannika Vonghan said, “The Main Street location is, I feel, like my home. I’ve been doing that for 12 years. So, I don’t want to let it go to something else, and [new manager Mark Kenner] wants it to continue as a Thai restaurant.” The CAFB location will remain open under current management.

Rook’s Wine Cellar 2118 Hwy. 45 N. is having a big sale. Owner Mike Rooker has announced that he is planning to sell the shop: “Right now, everything’s 15 percent off and I’m trying to sell as much as I can . . . I’m trying to get rid of as much inventory as possible. I don’t want to take it home.” He has been running the shop since 2007, and he wants to focus more on his profession as a financial advisor.
