NECCO to Open Candy Store for Easter
Revere, MA- In light of overwhelming support from the local communities, the New England Confectionery Company (NECCO) will be celebrating Easter by opening the candy store located at NECCO’s world headquarters at 135 American Legion Highway, Revere, MA.
The store will be open Monday April 14th – Friday April 18th with daily hours of operation from 10:00 AM – 4:00 PM.
NECCO’s Easter candy, such as the Mighty Malts Malted Milk Eggs, will be available for purchase in addition to an extensive selection of the company’s popular classic candies, such as NECCO Wafers, Clark Bars, Candy Buttons and Mary Janes. Customers will also have a chance to create their own mix of sweets from an assortment of candy items.
As NECCO has done with previous holiday store openings, a portion of the proceeds generated from candy store sales will be donated to Boston’s Room to Grow charity, which focuses on enriching the lives of children born into poverty during their first three years of development.
NECCO welcomes all customers to join them during this Easter celebration at the candy store and indulge on classic sweets from their childhood!
