New Chocolate Shop Opens on Cville Downtown Mall

Posted: Updated:

Just in time for Valentine’s Day, Charlottesville has a brand-new chocolate shop. My Chocolate Shoppe opened on the downtown mall a week before Valentine's Day and took advantage of the holiday rush.

Owner Mary Beth Schellhammer says they are still working to get up to full production. They haven't been able to get any advertising out yet either, but she says because of the holiday, customers have been pouring in.

"We were hearing people walk by going, 'When are they opening, when are they opening?' and they didn't realize we had to make all the stuff, so even though it looked like we were open, I had to hire people and teach them how to make chocolate,” Schellhammer said.

Schellhammer says the shop will be dipping strawberries and bacon in chocolate for customers who stop by Friday.
