Sugar Sugar will remain open on Grand. Late owner Joni Wheeler’s friend and staff member of three years, Tracy Holy, bought the business last month.

“I learned from the best,” Holy said.

Holy has a background in photography, and she sells embroidery kits through her Etsy shop called dioramatist. Wheeler initially hired Holy at Paper Source in Uptown, so she also has the packaging talent for which Wheeler was famous.

“We shared a lot of the same ideals, and she taught me almost everything,” Holy said. “The essence of the store will stay the same.”

Holy is opening Sugar Sugar a bit earlier on weekends to catch the brunch crowd. Hours are Tuesday thru Friday 11 a.m.-6 p.m., Saturday 10 a.m.-6 p.m. and Sunday 10 a.m.-4 p.m. She also plans to revamp the website and offer online orders.
