Cool Confectionary Retail
Looking to satisfy your sweet tooth? We had a look at the most mouth watering confectionary retail spaces around the world, to see who were the most innovative and attention grabbing:
A really inventive way to sell confectionary, this medicinal themed candy store in Barcelona offers an abundance of ‘Happy pills’ for a sweeter world. Branded as a confectionary pharmacy, Happy Pills offers customers the chance to pick and chose from an array of confectionary and then package them in various sized pill jars to make sure they each get their desired daily dose.
With a tongue in cheek attitude, IT’SUGAR aims to sell candy to customers in the same way that Victoria’s Secret sells lingerie, with a lot of drama and cheeky flair. Officially the fastest growing candy store in the world, IT’SUGAR features colourful displays full of super-sized versions of popular sweets and mannequins wearing candy clothes (all edible and available to purchase!).
Dylan’s Candy Bar
Who said Candy was just for kids? Not Dylan Lauren (daughter of Ralph) that’s for sure! In her chain of boutique candy stores, the retail space is used to blend candy with fashion, art and pop culture so that there’s something for every shopper no matter what their age.
The retail store dedicated entirely to M&M’s candy and merchandise is filled with kitsch statues of M&M’s characters recreating famous British scenes such as the Beatles walking over the Abbey Road crossing. The biggest draw of all is the interactive wall of chocolate that features 100 clear tube dispensers reaching up to the ceiling and gives customers the opportunity to create their own custom-blended and even personalised M&M’s selection.
A trip down memory lane and an education in confectionary all rolled into one, Cybercandy is the UK’s longest running retailer of imported sweet treats. The store uses bold displays to grab shopper attention, including wacky window displays and a massive oversized gumball machine!
Pronounced ‘candy lover’, this is one of the largest candy stores in the world and has been cleverly zoned over two levels to ensure maximum customer interaction and satisfaction. There’s a design your own lollipop station and even a French patisserie for those with a more sophisticated pallet.
The Candy Room
The minimal store fittings in The Candy Room, Melbourne, create a cartoonish backdrop to the striking confectionary displays that includes oversized lollies and colour coordinated M&Ms.
Honeydukes at Universal Studios
A must-stop for visitors to Universal Studios’ Wizarding World of Harry Potter is Honeydukes sweet shop. The movie set style store features beautiful themed packaging and a perfectly pink winding staircase that work together to capture the magic of Harry Potter for shoppers of all ages.
