Annual Easter sale draws hundreds

Posted: Updated:
STRUTHERS, Ohio -

Hundreds of people in Struthers lined up 7 a.m. outside Giannios candy on Easter Sunday hoping to get their favorite piece of chocolate to bring back to their family.

"It's just fun. You get up in the morning, Easter morning, and even know you come out here and freeze your butt off but you have fun. I usually come with my brother and we have a good time," said Michele Page of New Middletown. 

Giannios Candy Company began, what is now a family tradition for so many, about 40 years ago and it's been growing ever since. 

"My favorite part is talking to all the people. People thanking me for opening up and the friendship and the talking and getting along. It's like it's a destination on Easter Sunday and takes advantage of some delicious chocolate at some good prices," said owner John Giannios. 

Candy lovers of all ages packed the store in waves trying to pick through candy of all shapes and sizes. No matter if it's the Easter eggs, the chocolate bunnies, or even the fudge everyone has their favorite. 

"Oh, my favorite is this dark chocolate cashew bar. It's really good and we come for the eggs of course," said Lisa Bernat of New Middletown. 

If you missed today's sale, don't worry, Giannios candy sale continues throughout the week so you can still come in and get 50% off your favorite Giannios candy.
