After 68 years, Henry’s Candy Co will close in Dexter, KS

Henry's Candy Co.

Bad news coming out of Dexter, KS. Henry’s Candy Company announced on their Facebook page that after 68 years in business, they will be closing for business.

The last day for the historic Kansas candy shop will be May 31.

In the post, they shared:

I have made a very hard decision to close the store down by May 31st!!! I am no longer able to do it on my own anymore, after losing my mom and sister it has never been the same!!! We all gave our lives to keeping it open, and I spent all my life in it as far back as I can remember and really never was able to have a life outside of the store until now. I am engaged to a wonderful man and plan on getting married soon, so it’s time I move on with my life!!! I want to say how very much I appreciate my loyal customers and that is what I will miss most!!! Without you we would have been out of business years ago!!! I will try and keep you updated if the situation changes coming up!!! Thanks for all the years in business!!!!

Those who want to go show some love to the candy shop have about 7 weeks to do so.

Henry’s Candy Company is located at 21172 K-15 in Dexter, KS.
