Save 56-yr old small family run candy business

Dear Friends ~

We are Nory Candy and Pastry, , a small manufacturing facility in Winnetka, CA, which produces  the freshest, most delicious gummy candies you have ever tasted. The exotic, and sometimes nutty, cubes are called locum.

If you're familiar with C.S. Lewis' "The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe", then you've surely wondered about the enticing sweets the Snow Queen uses to lure Edmund to her side.  (Eye On LA)

Well, Nory's artisan locums are that good and more, (minus the scary witch), and are much loved by customers from every corner of the United States, Canada, South America and even Australia.  (KTLA Weekend Morning News)

Sadly, our small family run business, which has been in existence since 1964, is on the verge of shutting its doors permanently due to the massive debt we've accumulated during the last six months, and our inability to produce and generate income during the Covid Quarantine.

One of the things Nory Candy has always prided itself is supporting other small businesses. While many establishments opt for ordering boxes, containers, ingredients and more from abroad, we've always taken a firm stance and supported local family run small businesses, like us, including purchasing boxes from local print shops and purchasing nuts grown right here in CA.

In addition to supporting "fellow" small businesses, Nory has always generously made donations to the local community to help with fundraisers for schools, scouts and so on. 

Nory Candy is now turning to you for your kindness and support to help us keep our doors open and celebrate our 57th birthday! With your generous donations, we will be able to  remain at our current location, slowly get back to making our one of a kind artisan delicacies and continue the tradition of locum making at its best. We will also continue to support our fellow businesses  and community.

Please share with your friends and help save Nory Candy and Pastry - a little slice of heaven in Winnetka!!!
