If You Haven’t Been to Nichols Lately…..

Nichols Candies is a great little spot (dare I say “sweet”?) to get a little shopping done for others as well as spoil yourself a bit. Off 128 and standing alone, it’s a little visit to the past as you step inside and are greeted with seemingly endless choices and fragrant smells. Individual assistance is on hand and I can attest they are very patient. It feels familiar and friendly and if you haven’t been lately, I suggest you put it on your list.

Concrete was being poured while we were there under watchful eyes. Gloucester is going to look great for the 400th anniversary! Thanks to City Hall and all others involved in these efforts!
