That's the name of a recently opened shop in Southside Mall in Oneonta that specializes in the sales of pretzels and soft ice cream.
Matthew and Lisa DeVincenzo said feedback was positive when they sold pretzels at their seasonal business, Esposito's Italian Ice on Main Street in Cooperstown, and they decided to open a shop focusing on pretzels.
Consumers may watch as the hand-rolled pretzels are made in the shop. Pretzels are available plain or salted or in other varieties, including cinnamon sugar, cinnamon raisin, onion and sesame, he said. Pretzel dogs and pretzel nuggets also are available, along with beverages and candy.
Twisted opened about two weeks ago, Lisa DeVincenzo said Friday, and business is going well.
"We're getting the feel for it," she said. "Every mall needs a pretzel shop."
Twisted is located near the main entrance to Southside Mall and is open during mall hours.
Delaware chamber plans home show
The Delaware County Chamber of Commerce seeks vendors for a show this spring.
The third annual Catskill Region Business Expo and Home Improvement Show will be at the Delaware County Fairgrounds in Walton on Saturday, May 19, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Plans are for participation by more than 50 exhibitors from construction companies, alternative energy services, landscapers and more at the admission-free event, the release said.
"This event is to educate our residents and second homeowners on businesses available to them when planning and making decisions on a home improvement project," Mary Beth Silano, executive director of the chamber said in the release.
Last year, about 500 attended the show and almost one half of the businesses that exhibited were contacted as a result of the show, the release said. Silano said the show is an affordable way for a business to publicize itself, which is important in a tough economy.
For registration forms, vendor information and sponsorship information, call the chamber at 746-2281 or email Silano at email@example.com.
