Lights still burned inside Nancy’s Candy Company at the Village Green when I left Blue Ridge Muse at 10:11 p.m. Thursday. People bustled about inside as they worked to get ready for the shop’s grand opening on Friday.

From the outside, they look ready to open now. Candies and sweets of all types fill the shelves and display cases in the red-and-white, brightly lit interior.

There’s enough there to drive a chocoholic into rehab.

Memo to self: Join gym. You’re going to need someplace to burn off the calories.
