GLEN ELLYN – For Glen Ellyn resident Susan Johanson, life is sweet.
Johanson owns Glen Ellyn Sweet Shoppe at 550 Crescent Blvd. in downtown Glen Ellyn. She took over the store in November 2010 after working for the previous owner, Catherine Moseley.
However, the store first opened in the 1970s, which is one of the reasons why Johanson decided to purchase Glen Ellyn Sweet Shoppe after Moseley decided to sell the store.
"It's a great place in Glen Ellyn," she said. "I raised my four kids here, and I love being part of the town. I wanted to keep something that's obviously cherished by the town going and help other families enjoy the treat that we've enjoyed."
