Grand Opening: Le Chocolat du Savoie
The sweet smells of chocolate and goodies filled the air in the newly opened Le Chocolat du Savoie for their Grand Opening on Saturday, April 30th. The new West Brant store (320 Colborne St West) had lots of chocolates on hand for guests to taste as they browsed the shelves for some wonderful delights. A few of the treats available were peanut butter cups, chocolate covered strawberries and marshmallows, edible phones and lipsticks, and an assortment of ice cream.
Owners Annette Savoie and Laszlo Polyak were thrilled to see all the guests coming in to experience their new store. Many people and dignitaries came to celebrate their official opening in the morning, and the crowds kept coming throughout the afternoon.
Annette has been in the chocolate industry for over 30 years and was very excited to bring a gourmet Belgium chocolate store to Brantford. “It’s never a dull moment. Chocolate always makes people smile and you get to see that sparkle in their eye when they come in.” She also mentioned that in this business she gets to eat or think about chocolate all day; which probably helped to keep her in the business for this long.
Le Chocolat du Savoie also offers gift baskets, wedding favours, and corporate items for the community.
