Sweet Escapes Is your One Stop Fun Shop

Sweet Escapes, located at 205 North Front St. (beside Northway Restaurant), is your one stop fun shop.  You will find retro and hard-to-find candy, board games, puzzles, fun escape rooms, a board game café  and even some other cool retail items. 

Owners Maxine Olive and Casey Chourney both worked at Lowe’s in Belleville and through their interests developed a friendship.  Maxine holds world record for the fastest completion of the 40,320 piece Ravensburger puzzle (under 150 hours) as well as the 51,300 piece Kodak puzzle with an even faster time.  Maxine has been featured on Global and CTV news, American media NPR, as well as local media.

Together Max and Casey created the youtube channel “Maxine the Puzzle Queen’.  This fueled their entrepreneurial spirits, and they decided to create a fun place where all age groups can enjoy. 

Max and Casey are ready to welcome the region to their fun and exciting one-stop fun shop.

Mayor Mitch Panciuk cut the official ribbon on Friday, August 20th with Councillor Sandison also in attendance. Bay of Quinte MPP Todd Smith was joined by the Minister of Small Business and Red Tape Reduction, Nina Tangri, who was in Belleville and expressed her delight at being able to attend.  Chamber CEO, Jill Raycroft also presented a certificate of congratulations.

Sweet Escapes is open Monday – Thursday from 11 a.m. - 9 p.m., Friday and Saturday from 11 a.m. – 10 p.m. and Sunday from 11 a.m. – 5 p.m. You can find them online at sweetescapes.ca.  Follow them on facebook @Sweetescapes.ca or call 613-779-8388.
