New Business CJ's Candies

  We are: CJ's Candies Owned by: Carol and John Flannigan Address: 610 Main Street, Shelbyville Phone: 437-5344

Hours: Monday through Friday 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturdays. Closed Sundays.

What we offer: All kinds of candies – assorted bulk candies, hand-dipped creams and caramels, homemade fudge, Jelly Bellies, custom sweets for weddings and other occasions, a sugar-free selection, lollipops, old time candies and nut brittles. CJ's Candies also carries Modjestas, the gooey caramel, marshmallow treat famous in the area. Eventually, CJ's Candies hopes to carry ice cream, which it would sell and serve from a small parlor in the back of the shop.

We say: “We're going to treat everybody like they're special, whether they buy one piece or a whole tray full,” Carol said. “We think that makes people feel happy. We want them to be happy when they walk in here. Who isn't happy to walk into a candy shop?”
