PARADISE, Calif. – One popular candy shop in Paradise is getting ready to make a come back nearly two years after it was lost in the Camp Fire.

Joy Lyn's Candies was completely destroyed during the Camp Fire. The only thing that survived was its sign outside the building. Now, nearly two years later, the sign is hanging at the new location which will open in just a few days.

Owner of Joy Lyn’s Candies, Glenn Hartley, still remembers the day he was forced to evacuate from his business in Paradise when the Camp Fire hit.

“The most important thing for us was that the business survived, but then we found out it hadn't,” said Hartley.

Now after almost two years and a lot of hard work, his candy shop is ready to reopen its doors again.

Action News Now Kristian Lopez asked Hartley "how important was it for you to rebuild your business?"

“It was the most important, it's what we do for a living, this is what I'm good at, this is what I love to do,” shared Hartley. “It felt important to bring this to Paradise.”

Hartley has been busy in the kitchen whipping up a variety of goodies and says he cannot wait to see his customers again.

“The community support has been absolutely heartwarming and just really makes me feel good, and I know that once we get the doors open, we will be doing very well with the number of people coming through...I hope we can keep up," said Hartley. "My challenge will be keeping up with the number of people who can't wait to get our candy."

The grand reopening will take place on Oct. 1. The new shop is located at 220 Pearson Road in Paradise. It will be open during the week from 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturdays.
