New confectionery shop with a nautical theme opens in Harbour Road

Seaton said Ahoy! to a new shop last week – after a pirate cut a tape.

Quarterdeck Confectionery, a sweetshop with a nautical flavour - opened in Harbour Road.

It is run by Janis Moore who previously worked as a teaching assistant at Seaton Primary School.

She chose Seaton to open her shop as the resort is becoming a popular destination for visitors.

“The Jurassic Centre, the new Tramway station and the construction of the new Premier Inn are set to encourage more holidaymakers,” she said.

Janis sells a large selection of traditional boiled sweets, popular jellies and gums with added seasonal treats throughout the year.

She added: “I called the shop Quarterdeck Confectionery to fit in with the nautical theme of the decor and because it harked back to days gone by when sweets could be bought by the quarter pound, the modern day equivalent being 100 grams.

*The shop was opened by Janis’ son Alex dressed as a pirate.
