Slide Show Townsends Sweet Shoppe

After working for several years at a large department store, June quit the work force to raise two children. While at home, she began to make homemade candy gifts for close friends and family. The demand for June's delicious and unique treats became so great that in the spring of 1992, she was "forced out of her home..." and into the business world of specialty sweets.

And today, with the 21st century knocking at our door, we at Townsend's Sweet Shoppe embrace our old-fashioned bring you the very best quality homemade sweets - right from June's kitchen.


"This is an old-fashioned candy store, featuring home made chocolate candy. They have molded shapes in extreme variety, for your hobby, occupation, etc. They also make home made pies to order. We had a blueberry pie, and it was exceptional."
