It’s about to get sweeter in the GTA, as Sugarfina is opening its first store this weekend.
The Instagrammable boutique is all about the sweet treats and its cute packaging, and the new Square One Shopping Centre location will have over 80 gourmet candies from around the world.
Opening on October 6, candy-lovers can customize their own gift with the Design Your Own Candy Bento Box experience, which features an eye-catching wall of the brand’s finest chocolates, caramels, gummies, and jellies, packaged into signature lucite Candy Cubes.
“We created Sugarfina because the candy store of our dreams didn’t exist and we’re delighted to open our first boutique in Toronto at the Square One Shopping Centre,” say co-founders Rosie O’Neill, former director of marketing for Barbie, and Josh Resnick, former video game entrepreneur. “We dreamed of gourmet sweets made with premium ingredients — candy that’s as beautiful to look at as it is to taste – and our new shop brings delicious, never-before-seen candies.”
Named one of the ten most beautiful candy shops by Architectural Digest, Sugarfina’s newest outpost is a freestanding 301-sq-ft shop that will feature the brand’s signature bright white design, glossy white fixtures, and an aqua neon “candy” sign.
The Sugarfina shop in the Square One Shopping Centre is located next to Fossil and across from Aritzia. It will be open from 10 am to 9 pm Monday through Friday, 9:30 am to 9 pm Saturday and 11am to 7 pm on Sunday.
Sugarfina plans to open a second Toronto location at First Canadian Place in November.
