Chocolate shop unwraps new Leicester store

Cocoa Amore, the Leicester chocolate shop has moved premises in the city after a £50,000 investment.

The artisan chocolate shop, which was originally located in the historic Silver Arcade, has recently opened the doors of its brand new store in Silver Street. Chocolatier and owner, Pete Gardener, decided to make the move to the more spacious premises earlier this year in order to accommodate plans to expand.

Gardener said: “We’ve had a successful couple of years and it was great to receive such wonderful comments after the opening of our new shop. I’m very happy with the new store, particularly our workshop space which is busier than ever. We hope to see the shop go from strength to strength over the coming year and see our plans for further expansion come into action.”
