BARRETT TWP. — Callie’s Pretzel Factory in Cresco, a fixture in the Pocono Mountains since 1985 offering a variety of pretzels and popcorn, is closing its doors at the end of the year, according to a post on the business’s Facebook page.
Its sister business, Callie’s Candy Kitchen in Mountainhome, will remain open. The businesses are 3 miles apart.
The Facebook post said Gretchen Callie Reisenwitz and husband Mark will be retiring, but sisters Patti and Lynn Callie will continue to run the candy store.
This will be the final year for Candy Cane demonstrations at the pretzel factory. They will be Saturdays and Sundays at 2 p.m. from Nov. 30 to Dec. 22.
