For more than a decade, Jackie Wilsberg has been the warm, familiar face behind the counter at Love Lane Sweet Shoppe in Mattituck. Wilsberg and her husband, Bill, purchased the business in January 2009 with the goal of keeping the longstanding candy and gift shop as charming as it’s been since opening in the 1980s.

Lifelong Mattituck residents, the Wilsbergs often visited Love Lane Sweet Shoppe, which had moved around a couple locations on the street before settling in its current 11,000-square-foot space in 1996.
