Chocolate shop coming to Dilworth

So here's some news that should get any sweet tooth's blood sugar surging in anticipation: Davidson Chocolate Co. plans to open a second location in Dilworth at the end of August. The store will be at Kenilworth Commons, the Harris Teeter-anchored shopping center on East Boulevard; the original shop is, unsurprisingly, in Davidson, and opened in 2008.

The full-service chocolate shop, owned by husband and wife John and Sue Elliott, will sell a full line of gourmet truffles (17 flavors!), confections, fudge and Belgian chocolate brownies, as well as other featured desserts and seasonal and holiday items. Ice cream and milkshakes will also be available in store.

"We are excited to bring handmade chocolate to the Dilworth area, which has much of the same community pride, demographic and aspects that make doing business in Davidson so enjoyable," John Elliott said in a news release.
