A traditional sweet shop

Both online & instore

We're a Proper Sweet Shop

 Our number one reason is because this is what we do.

We've been running our bricks and mortar sweet shop business since 2011. But actually started up in 2010.

Where a random, impulse decision to open a sweet shop meant we became the old traditional high street sweet shop, we all remember from our childhoods.

And of course we're appropriately named after Jen (the owner) who one day started this whole thing in a tiny (really tiny) market stall.

(If you live nearby we are well worth a visit)

Our First Shop

After almost 2 years of success we moved from our tiny market stall, to a fully fitted sweet shop.

It took us a good few months to get ready and in August of 2011, Jens Sweet Shop was officially open for business.

We went big too, stocking over 400 different types of sweets from retros, hard boiled sweets and liquorice. Right through to gummy's and sours in our massive pick n mix.

Our shops changed over the years but one thing has stayed the same. Jen is still at the helm, running the business, with her Husband and family supporting every day (and pinching a few sweets every so often).

Going Online...

We're always looking for new and innovative ways to grow our business.

And starting a website seemed like a good fit, so we gave it a try.

It's safe to say that 'going online' at the first attempt didn't quite turn out as good as we'd hoped.

But after a few years, many hours spent learning the ropes and a few rebuilds later. We've developed a website that matches our physical store perfectly.

(*Let's just say Jen's Son's first website attempt wasn't perfect)
