Re-Opening (the next stage!) April 12th 2021

It’s been a long, fraught, difficult year, but, from 12th April, we are positively giddy to tell you that we will finally be able to re-open the shop and the outside café.
Inside the shop, you’ll be able to browse the counter and shelves and select your favourite chocolates. You’ll also be able to order takeaway drinks and cakes.
Outside, you’ll be able to sit and enjoy the Buxton sunshine (hopefully!) on our terrace area.
We’ll be resuming our table service, so all you have to do is sit yourselves down at a cleared table and a member of our team will be over to take your order.
We politely ask that you do not move the tables and chairs as they will be set out in accordance with the current social-distancing rules. We also ask you not to move between tables, or we have to start the cleaning procedure all over again.
We also ask you not to bring your own food to our tables. Not only does it contravene the current guidelines, it’s also incredibly rude.
We so look forward to welcoming you back to Charlotte’s. And for those of you who have supported us throughout this awful year, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
Stay safe and stay positive.

Re-opening (well… partial re-opening!) Wednesday 3rd Feb

I’m really happy to announce that our hatch service will be re-opening for business on Wednesday 3rd February.
As before, we’ll be just open for takeaway drinks, snacks and chocolate collection, Wednesday to Sunday 11am-3pm.
We’ll be posting lots of gift ideas and offers on our social media pages, so keep your eyes peeled!
If you would like to place an order for chocolates to be posted, please email me at bevjones@charlotteschocolates.com. giving me an idea what your chocolatey preferences are, how much you would like to spend and a contact telephone number so I can call you to discuss your order and take payment.
This continues to be a really difficult time for all small businesses, and your continued support will be so very much appreciated.
Stay safe and stay positive!

Shop Re-Opening 2nd December 2020

I’m happy to announce that our little chocolate shop will be re-opening for business on Wednesday 2nd December.

10 Year Anniversary Celebrations!

It’s our whopping-great-big 10 year Anniversary on Thursday 1st October and, to mark the occasion, we’re giving all our customers a 10% discount on that day.
It’s just our way of saying “thank you” for all your support.
We’re also going a little crazy with the decorations (not like me at all, I know) with a little help from our chums at the Little Big Balloon Company.
So pop in on Thursday and join in the fun!
Here’s to the next 10 years!

Friday 3rd July

Just to let you all know that the chocolate shop will be closed on Friday 3rd July, so Ellie & I can get the café area sorted out ready for re-opening on Saturday 4th.
The serving hatch will be open as usual, for takeaway drinks, snacks and ice creams – as well as words of encouragement while we’re shifting furniture around!
Thank you for your patience and your continued support.

15th June

We are overjoyed to announce that the chocolate shop will re-open its doors on Monday 15th June at 10am.

We will continue to sell a range of drinks and snacks via our serving hatch, as we cannot legally open as a café at this current time.

We ask that you continue to observe current social distancing rules, and please use the hand sanitizer we have provided, before entering the shop.

Our Upstairs Restaurant has unfortunately not survived the economic fallout from the pandemic, but will be open for the sale of all the remaining stock, from the 15th June.

Thank you for all your support, encouragement and positivity, at what has been the most trying of times.
