As a fan of Michael Savino’s cookie treats, it is with great pleasure that I let it be known that starting yesterday, June 22, this online-only cookie maker has opened a retail store-front of his own. You can now go in to Michael’s Cookie Jar and see it, taste it and then purchase it right there. In fact, you can have it eaten by the time you can say “cookie-liscious”! If you’ve never tried Michael’s cookies at a market where he sells directly to the consumer or ordered them from his online store, you must drop in and try them, it’s so worth it!
