The shop, known as The Olde Sweet Shop, has been a fixture in the centre of Darlington for more than 100 years. It has become well known for its selection of traditional sweets and chocolates, as well as its distinctive Victorian-style decor.
The shop is now up for sale, with the current owner citing “personal reasons” for the closure. It is believed that the shop will now be sold off to a new owner, who will have the chance to continue its legacy.
The closure of The Olde Sweet Shop has been met with sadness by many in the local community. However, the shop’s legacy will live on, with its distinctive decor and wide range of traditional sweets now part of Darlington’s history.
