In light of a successful Valentine’s Day week fueled by the overwhelming support of fans in local communities, the New England Confectionery Company (Necco) will be celebrating Easter by again opening the candy store located at NECCO’s world headquarters at 135 American Legion Highway, Revere, MA.
The store will be open Sunday, March 24 - Saturday, March 30, with daily hours of operation from 10 a.m. - 4 p.m.
NECCO’s Easter candy, such as Mighty Malts Speckled 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, Sky Bars and Mary Janes. Customers will also have a chance to create their own mix of sweets in a candy buffet. Both cash and credit card will be accepted for transactions.
As Necco continues to strengthen its connection with its community, a quarter of all 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 holiday celebration at the candy store and indulge on classic sweets from their childhood!
