Local Candy Stores Booming

By  | 

Everything from peanut clusters to chocolate-covered cherries are flying off the shelves at Jan-Mar's Chocolate Emporium in downtown Wausau.

"It's something that can be enjoyed by the family and enjoyed by guests that stop in," said Marla Seubert, co-owner of Jan-Mar's.

Seubert and her business partner have only had Jan-Mar's for three and a half years. They started it after working for Michael's Candy, a staple in downtown Wausau since the 1980s.

Now Michael's candy is sold in the Jan-Mar store. You'll find more than 30 different kinds of homemade chocolates at Jan-Mar's.

Seubert says Christmas is the biggest money-maker for her candy business.
