Specialty Sweets, the longtime Bangor confectioner, has this week opened its new downtown Bangor location, at 31 Main St. The business will offer handmade candy, fudge, truffles and other sweet goodies, as well as ice cream by the scoop. Hours are 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays; closed on Sundays.

Specialty Sweets, owned and operated by Eliza and Wade Butler, has had a location out by the Bangor Mall for more than three decades; the downtown location was announced back in May, after the 1851 building it is located in was purchased and renovated.
