Back in the Day... Root's Sweet Shoppe 1966

We came across this picture of Bill Root standing proudly in front of his store at 439 South Ave. W. in Westfield back in 1966.    
Root's Sweet Shoppe, a candy store & soda fountain, operated from 1966 to 1988 and was a cornerstone of our community with many loyal, everyday customers. The environment inside was more like family than business. Root's helped shape many young people's lives in Westfield and was truly a special place for over 20 years.   
After a devastating fire in 2012, the Root building was rebuilt and is now home to Gallery U Boutique.
