Goodwill Industries in Zanesville has purchased all the real estate of the old Bloomer Candy Company located at 3600 and 3610 West Pike.

 Goodwill Officials say this month and next they have rented the property to the new Bloomer Candy Company which will use the property to package and ship product to fulfill established contracts.

Goodwill then plans to begin renovations on the real estate facility in March of this year once the new Bloomer Candy Company moves to its permanent location.

Goodwill says the West Pike facilities will be renovated to accommodate Goodwill Mission Programming, including workforce development, employment services and corporate offices, recycling and contract operations.
