It was the 12th store of it’s kind to open in Ireland and sold a range of old-school, retro sweets.
“It is with a very heavy heart that I bring this news to all our loyal customers”, said a spokesperson for the store..
“We are closing our door for the final time on Saturday, 17 May.
“We would like to thank every loyal customer for their loyal custom over the last eight months, its been great to meet you all.
“If you get a chance over the next couple of days pop in and say goodbye to us.”
