The sweet smell of fresh baked cookies is back in the air at the Colony Square Mall.
Since the departure of Mrs. Field's the Colony Square Mall hasn't had a place to stock up on the melt in your mouth treats. Now the ribbon has been cut on the Cookie Store. It's part of a franchise based out of Tennessee and is the second store for owner Danuta Connell.
"We came to check out the community," said Owner Danuta Connell. "It sounded like a fun place to be so we just too advantage of the opportunity."
Besides cookies the store also offers cookie cakes, smoothies and brownies.
"We just don't see cookies. I want to sell fun," said Connell. "I would like people to come and see even if they don't buy cookies at this time to see what the cookie store has."
The Cookie Store opened last week so that employees could be hired and any kinks worked out. Connell said that so far the response from the community has been overwhelming.
