The new cookie destination for those living in Tyler will open in mid-May. According to a Facebook post, the new store is looking to fill many positions and will soon be selling warm cookies every day from right before noon until 1 a.m. and then until 3 a.m. on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights.
