You might have seen that Northants Life are on the hunt for Northampton’s small business of the year. They have been searching high and low and have now whittled it down to the best eight small businesses in the area.

Unsurprisingly, one of the brilliant independent shops at our shopping village has made the final eight: Darcys Delights Traditional Sweet Shop! The sweet shop is looking to go one step further and be crowned Northampton’s best small business of the year, but they need your help.

The winner will be crowned by public vote and there is a week to vote for your favourite small business, with votes closing on 3rd October. It only takes a moment and every vote counts. You can place your vote by visiting the vote page here.

While there are a number of brilliant businesses nominated, there is only one winner in our eyes! If you’ve ever popped into Darcys Delights during a visit to our shopping village, you’ll understand the perfect combination of nostalgia and high-quality sweets that they offer.

The sweet shop has turned into a must visit for both little ones and big kids looking to take their taste buds on a trip down memory lane with their favourite old sweets. The traditional sweet shop is committed to bringing exquisite chocolates and sweets to all of their customers – whatever the age!

We wish them the best of luck!

Darcys Delights is the perfect pit-stop when exploring our shopping village. All of our shops are open 10am-5pm daily and we have free parking.
