Mike Denardo from KYW Newsradio interviewed Randy Oakford from Aunt Charlotte's Candies yesterday to talk about how the pandemic is impacting this year's Easter sales. Oakford said 40 percent of the store's annual revenue normally comes at Easter and the need to "stay-at-home" resulted in laying off two-thirds of her 35-person staff. However, although the volume of sales are down, customers have been very loyal and they have been busier than ever filling phone orders for curbside pickup, local delivery, or shipping - even causing their phone system to crash early in the week when 276 calls came in at opening time.
Aunt Charlotte's Candies is full of delicious Easter goodies, pretty giftware and many beautifully decorated baskets! You can call in an order to be picked up - pay by credit card over the phone and ring the door bell on the side of our building - and a sales girl will bring it out to your car if you don't want to come inside. We also mail candy all over, just call (856) 662-0058 and ask for Paige who will take good care of you and, if you really can't get out we would be pleased to do local deliveries. Get those orders in soon so you can start filling those baskets!
