Businesses ready for holiday rush


Lockport Union-Sun & Journal — The Apple Blossom open houses will feature a set-up by the Barker Chocolate Box, which has already seen a rush of gifting — no one says gifts can’t be immediately enjoyed — at its new storefront at the Main Place Mall in Buffalo, which opened in October.

Cindy Jex, who has invested in the Corky’s Building as the site for a future storefront in Medina, said the mini-pies, cheesecakes and fudge she’ll have at Apple Blossom have proven to be very popular — and time consuming.

“It’s been a busy couple of weeks,” Jex said. “I’m going to try to get away for a few days to see my grandson, then it’s back to work.” 

For early-bird Christmas shoppers, there’s an avalanche of shopping opportunities this weekend in western Orleans County. July Fenton’s “Between the Vines” Home Show kicks off two weeks of craft sales on Friday, Saturday and Sunday; the Country Holiday Craft Show takes over the Trolley Building at the Orleans County Fairgrounds from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday; and the East Shelby Fire Company is hosting their 16th annual Craft Show from 9 a.m. to

3 p.m. Saturday.
