With the province of Ontario remaining paused in stage three of reopening, we are continuing with limited in store shopping Tuesday through Saturday 10 am to 5 pm.

The door will remain locked, please knock upon arrival. A maximum of FIVE customers are allowed in, depending on staff availability.  Parts of the store continue to be roped off but we are happy to help with anything you wish to see closer from these areas.

Please note with the ongoing supply challenges in our world not everything is available in either giftware or our handmade food product. We appreciate your patience.

Phone and email orders for curb side pickup are still encouraged whenever possible.

Dear Customers,

We recognize that everyone is struggling through these unprecedented times. Our world is changing daily, if not hourly. The Merritt family and the staff of Candies of Merritt are adjusting the way we serve our valuable customers. You mean more to us than you know and your health and safety remain our utmost priority. To that end, we are temporarily switching to alternative ways to serve you for everyone’s safety.

We appreciate your patience and understanding as we work through this ever-changing reality.

We enjoy interacting in person with our customers, many of whom have been part of our lives for years. While these current conditions are not our preferred method of service, it is in the best interest of our employees, customers, and the community.

We look forward to the time we can meet face-to-face in a more normal way once more.


The Merritt Family & Candies of Merritt Staff
