Pick and Mix Sweets
Posted on 3rd December 2020 at 09:33
Is Pick and Mix (In-Store) still viable?
You’re probably sick of hearing that word “adapting" but that is what the world has been having to do across all sectors, industries, shops, factories and the like. We at Mrs Sweet’s Chocolate and Treats could see the changes in real time: having a store and an online store we quickly saw an increase in sales with our online sweet shop and, in particular, the pick and mix section. Speaking to other sweets and treats gift shops, which offered pick and mix within their shops, we quickly realised that customers were not using them. It is that which inspired this blog - to try and find out how you feel about the future of in-store pick and mix sweets or aka Pic n Mix.

With all the doom and gloom we are all experiencing at the moment, hopefully Mrs Sweet has been helping to share a bit of joy around the UK.
With the introduction of our free delivery anywhere in the UK on orders over £9.99 Mrs Sweet's Chocolate & Treats online sweet shop has gone foam bananas. Yes! Mrs Sweet's treat boxes have been extremely popular with the option of adding a personalised message and requesting the delivery date but it's Mrs Sweet's pick and mix sweets that have taken off a treat!
Mrs Sweet has opened a new store in Bridlington on Bridge Street, near the Harbour. Set over four floors, one of the floors is dedicated to preparing fresh sweets which are sent to homes across the United Kingdom.
Here at Mrs Sweet's we like to think that the unprecedented increase in online sweet orders is down to us using only the tastiest, freshest sweet treats and preparing them with love and care. Unfortunately, as much as this is true and is definitely one reason we enjoy fantastic regular repeat orders, it's not the only reason!
Another reason is simply that the old way of purchasing in-store pick and mix sweets no longer fits with our current hygiene regulations and it is uncertain whether it will again. If you have taken the time to read this or are still reading this blog we would love to know your opinion on in-store pick and mix sweets and whether you would be more conscious of using one going forward?
Everything in Mrs Sweet's Chocolate & Treats store is pre-bagged and stored behind the counter.
Another popular product is Mrs Sweet’s Mixed sweet treat boxes, available with mixed sweets, mixed chocolate and mixed fudge, along with a range of seasonal treat boxes including Mrs Sweet’s American Candy Treat Box with some of the USA'S favourite sweets in one box.
Hopefully, if you are looking to buy sweets or treats in the future it's worth checking out www.mrssweets.co.uk Alternatively, if you are ever in Bridlington, pop in and say hello to Mrs Sweet in person.
