The sign in the window says: “We are sorry but the candy store has closed. Thank you to everyone who shopped our store.”
Word is that Floyd businessman David Larsen will move his business storefront and personal computer museum from its spot on the right side of the the Village Green to the large space occupied by Mountain Chocolate.
The closing of Mountain Chocolate leaves Time Travelers as the only retail operation in the Village Green, which opened with fanfare as a mixed-use retail and office center in 2007.
Anchor tenants included Nancy’s Candies, a Citizens Telephone service center and phone store, a book store, a photography studio, an antique shop, a timber frame company and Blue Ridge Muse. All are gone. Some closed, others moved.
Avellar Investments, another anchor tenant, is now Stone-Houston Investments.
Other tenants now include the Chamber of Commerce, a real estate company and a dentist.
