Little Sweets Spot, 315 N. Jefferson Street, held their official Huntington County Chamber of Commerce ribbon cutting on Wednesday, March 27. The store in downtown Huntington has reopened under new ownership and management. The business is now owned by Ashton and Betty Pinkerton where they assumed ownership of the store on January 1, 2024.

The owners are planning many changes to the store including freeze-dried candies, indulgent chocolates, exotic international candies and a special selection of unique sodas. There is now something for everyone. Little Sweets Spot is Huntington’s only self-serve confectionery destination with over 500 varieties of candy.
