Hotel Chocolat in Boston's Back Bay Is Closing
The Back Bay location of a high-end chocolatier is getting ready to call it a day.
UrbanDaddy is reporting that Hotel Chocolat on Newbury Street is closing within the next couple of weeks and is now selling everything for half price until it shuts its doors. Once it closes, the British-based company will no longer have any locations in the United States, as its other location in New York is no longer in business. (It is not known if any of its stores overseas will be closing.)
[September 22 update: The Boston Globe says that Hotel Chocolat plans to close its Back Bay store this Wednesday (September 24) or even earlier, depending on if they run out of products.]
[September 25 update: As indicated above, it appears that Hotel Chocolat in Boston is closed. (The Back Bay location is now gone from the main website.)]
The Boston location of Hotel Chocolat is known for its chocolates and chocolate drinks, as well as a now-closed chocolate bar where people could do tastings.
The address for this soon-to-close chocolatier in the Back Bay is: Hotel Chocolat, 141A Newbury Street, Boston, MA, 02116. The website for the company can be found at http://www.hotelchocolat.com/uk/
