I am constantly amazed at how many customers walk into my store and remark about how my inventory includes many of their long-time personal favorites that can't be found elsewhere
Buffalo, NY (PRWEB) May 31, 2008
Tom Margarucci's chocolate and candy store in the Hertel-North Buffalo neighborhood, known locally as Little Italy, creates a unique atmosphere of retro candy, hard-to-find candy items and nostalgic candy. This shopping experience will bring back those unique flavors and brand names and candy products you remember as a kid! The colorful storefront and sidewalk tables are the first clue that you are about to step back in time. There is a very distinctive and relaxing "watch the world go by" atmosphere inside the store -- especially on a hot summer day. Handmade chocolate special items in the large glass display cases, the variety of ice cream flavors, the extra large ice cream sundaes plus the knowledgeable owner behind the counter willing to tell you everything there is to know about retro candy makes for a unique retail business. It all comes together in this store located in North Buffalo. What was always a strong personal interest in chocolate and candy became the basis for the Bella Mia Chocolate & Candy Shop. Bella Mia can be literally translated into "My Beautiful" -- which gives you insight into why this store has become known as one of the friendliest stores to walk into on a hot summer day in Western New York. Ice cream sundaes, chocolate specials that vary with the Holidays during the year -- makes most customers return again and again.
Margarucci brings his new outlet for old-fashioned candy and hard-to-find brand names to the World Wide Web when he launched BellaMiaCandy.com -- giving chocolate lovers everywhere a one-stop shopping resource for ordering Canadian chocolates, Crystal Beach candy and retro candy products.
"I decided to create a web store where people can find the candy they remember as a kid, conveniently select, purchase and ship their choices directly to their doorstep. I believe that this niche Internet business will help my older customers pass on the traditions of old time candy favorites to their grandchildren. Everybody should grow up with a favorite candy or flavor," Margarucci said. "I hope to pass on my knowledge of retro candy and handmade chocolates and make it easier for others to find that perfect candy or gift package. This is the ideal place to shop if you have a Class Reunion or Family gathering planned for the summer months and need to stock up for your guests."
BellaMiaCandy.com offers other fun items including Beatles Memorabilia and collectible metal lunch boxes reminiscent of the '50s and '60s, a fabulous assortment of imported licorice and imported candy items featuring Canadian chocolate bars. Customers can create unique candy assortments that can be fine tuned to various decades for anniversaries of special occasions.
"I am constantly amazed at how many customers walk into my store and remark about how my inventory includes many of their long-time personal favorites that can't be found elsewhere," Margarucci said. "Usually people give up trying to find their personal favorites -- that is why I have created my web store that features products that have been grouped into categories such as 'Memories' or 'Treasures' -- because that is how strongly my customers feel about their candy favorites. By creating the web store, what was almost impossible to find a few years ago is now just a click away, and because I already have a traditional brick and mortar retail store, I can offer many items on the web store for very competitive prices since I am constantly ordering inventory for my regular retail store. I can take advantage of volume buying discounts and pass them on to my Internet customers at very affordable prices."
