Various kinds of pop-up stores have popped up in Wichita in the past few years to sell everything from crafts to clothing, but here’s one surely most shoppers can get behind: chocolate.
Cocoa Dolce Artisan Chocolates will have a valentine’s pop-up store at NewMarket Square from Feb. 1 through Feb. 19.
“It is a never-ending line of people asking us to consider putting a store on the west side,” says Cocoa Dolce CEO Beth Tully. “Has been for years, and it never really stops.”
The store will be open from noon to 8 p.m. on weekdays, 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Saturdays and noon to 6 p.m. on Sundays to sell pre-packaged chocolates along with some other Cocoa Dolce items. There won’t be coffee or gelato, though, which the Bradley Fair store offers.
Never miss a local story.
Tully says NewMarket developer Slawson Cos. has been great to work with and was “super excited to have us out there even for a couple of weeks.”
She says there’s a chance for a permanent west-side Cocoa Dolce.
“We’re really interested in exploring that possibility, so I’d say stay tuned.”
