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.
However, as Buxton has been placed in Tier 3, we are unable to re-open the cafe. We will, however, be offering a range of drinks and snacks for takeaway.
Please continue to support your local businesses throughout these trying times.

Lockdown Information

So, folks, we’re heading back into lockdown, so here’s our cunning plan:
This week (w/c 2nd Nov), it’s very much business as usual Monday-Wednesday. We’ll be open 10am-5pm (last orders 4.30pm).
Then, from Thursday 5th Nov through to Sunday 8th Nov, we’ll be resurrecting our Lockdown Takeaway Service, where you will be able to buy drinks & snacks and collect pre-ordered chocolates via the serving hatch between 11am-3pm.
Then, from next week (w/c 9th Nov) until the end of lockdown, we will be closed Mondays and Tuesdays.
And from Wednesday to Sunday we will run our Lockdown Takeaway Service via the serving hatch between 11am-3pm.
To pre-order chocolates, just email me at bevjones@charlotteschocolates.com with your telephone number, and I’ll call you back to discuss your order. Keep an eye out on our social media pages for any of our latest offers.
We’ve got through this once, folks… we can do it again.
Stay safe and stay positive… and please please please support your local businesses.
From all the team at Charlotte’s

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.

Date for the Diary… 15th June

Not long now, folks, before we can re-open our doors again.
Exciting, but a little scary, I must admit!
On 15th June we will be opening Charlotte’s Chocolates – as a shop. So you can buy chocolates over the counter… just like you used to do.
The counter is all re-stocked and raring to go! (and looking rather fabulous, I must admit!)
We’ll have lots of chocolatey delights ready and waiting for you.
We cannot, for the moment, re-open the café. So the tables and chairs will remain stacked and stored, waiting for when the Government says we can.
We will continue to sell delicious drinks, snacks and ice creams from our serving hatch, but for takeaway only.
Our opening hours will be Monday-Saturday 10-5, Sundays 11-4.
Current social distancing rules will apply, and we ask you please to respect them.
Thank you so much for your support over the past few weeks. It’s been amazing – and a little overwhelming at times! I hope you will continue to support us and that sometime soon, we’ll be back to normal again.

Lockdown Opening Hours

Between now and the 15th June we will be open for the sale of takeaway drinks, sandwiches, snacks and ice creams, via our serving hatch.

Afternoon Teas can be pre-ordered by contacting Diane via the Upstairs at Charlotte’s Facebook page or by calling 01298 938100 during our opening hours.

The hatch opening hours are Wednesday-Sunday 12-3pm.

Chocolates can be pre-ordered for collection at the hatch by emailing bevjones@charlotteschocolates.com before 9am on the day of collection.

If you wish to purchase chocolates to be delivered locally or sent via post nationally, then please email your telephone number to the same email address and I will contact you asap regarding your order.

Thank you so much for your custom and your kindness during this testing time – I really appreciate it.

Stay safe and stay positive.

Our New Take-Away/Delivery Service

Are you missing us? We’re certainly missing you!
Your messages of support from our previous posts have been totally overwhelming. Thank you so much!
Though we still can’t safely open our doors just yet, we’ve hatched a bit of an interim plan: From Wednesday 13th May, we’re starting our new collection and delivery service – through our trusty serving hatch!
So, you can pre-order chocolates from our ‘5-a-Day Specials’ list, or from one of our ‘Daily Meal Deals’ from the Upstairs Restaurant. All you need to do is watch out for our daily offers on our Facebook page, then contact us via email at bevjones@charlotteschocolates.com with your order.
You can then collect from the serving hatch outside Charlotte’s Chocolates between 12 & 2pm the following day – observing all the latest social distancing rules.
You can also buy take-away drinks and ice creams then from us then too.
The ‘Hatch’ will be open from Wednesday through to Sunday, 12-2pm each day, until we can finally and safely re-open our doors.
If you want to order chocolates to be delivered (in the Buxton area) or to be mailed (elsewhere in the UK) then email us your telephone number and we’ll contact you asap to discuss your order.
It’s been a difficult few months for everyone and we’d just like to do a little bit to help. It will also mean that – fingers and toes crossed – small businesses, like ours, might just survive.
Keep watching on our Facebook page, and we’ll show you what’s on offer…

Easter Weekend

I have received a number of enquiries recently about Easter egg delivery.
As much as it breaks my heart, I feel that it is better if my staff and I adhere to the Government’s instructions and stay home this weekend.
So unfortunately our Easter eggs will remain on the shelf until this madness is over.
As you know, Easter moves every year, so I’m sure no-one will mind if we move it to whenever we re-open.
Have a very happy and safe Easter everyone.
With best wishes from Bev and all the team here at Charlotte’s xxx
