On Saturday 1 December 2012, Bittersweet - the Chocolate Boutique said goodbye to its shop at the Barracks.
During our four years on Petrie Terrace, our team has faced several challenges, particularly the sad passing of our founder Ann Atkinson from pancreatic cancer in March 2010. A fantastic team helped us immeasurably in keeping Bittersweet trading through some very difficult times. However, juggling the demands of a young family with a 7 day retail business resulted in our decision to close our retail outlet.
Whilst we have made the decision to put Bittersweet on hiatus for now, our love for handcrafted chocolate and the unique recipes that our family has created over the last 30 years will surely mean that we will be drawn back into the chocolate business at some stage in the future. At this time however, our family needs to be our primary focus.
Many thanks to our customers for their kind messages of support and understanding - we feel fortunate to have made so many new friends along our journey.
We would love to keep in touch, so please email us your details to firstname.lastname@example.org
