Old-Time Candy Store Planned for Downtown York


Michelina "Mikey" Shirey plans to tap into York County's sweet tooth and sense of nostalgia.

The Springettsbury Township resident plans to open Memory Lane Sweets in downtown York early next year.

What Shirey calls a "vintage-style candy shop" will be in one of the retail spaces along the South Beaver Street side of the former Weinbrom Jewelers building.

RSDC, the company formerly known as Royal Square Development and Construction, is renovating the building at the corner of South Beaver and West Market streets for a first-floor restaurant, and retail spaces and apartments on the two upper floors.
