Russell Stover candies

Here is an ad from the early 1960's.  Many people don't realize that at one time Denholms had the exclusive ( in central Massachusetts) for Russell Stover which was then a high end line of chocolates.  The new candy department could be found on the Chatham Street entrance located on the first floor alongside the gourmet shop.  I remember as a kid receiving a box of these whenever I went to work with my grandmother for the day. I guess it was a good way of keeping me occupied while she worked.
To all of the mothers out there, I wish you all a very happy day!
