Today is the ultimate ‘I love you’ holiday.
And for one Marquette candy store, nothing says ‘I love you’ like a box of chocolate or other candies.
Donckers has seen a steady flow of customers today, with last-minute Valentine’s Day shoppers picking from the variety of chocolates and candies to find treats to satisfy that special someone’s sweet tooth.
And while they have a wide variety of sweets there are definitely some favorites.
Donckers co-owner Jen Ray says heart candies with truffles and mixed chocolates are very popular, but people who are stuck for an idea often go for a traditional box.
She also says in the four or five days leading up to Valentine’s Day each year, the store gets busier and busier each day.
For those of you who may still be in need of a gift, Donckers is open until 8 tonight.
