Rose Chocolatier, the local shop that makes hand crafted rich dark chocolate, will move to their new storefront at 149 Central Park Square.
On Thursday, Ray Villegas was working hard to keep the dust under control.
Villegas, who works with Rancho Creston, a company that does electrical, plumbing and general contracting, is getting the space ready so that Rose Chocolatier will be ready to make chocolates in the store, serve customers in the sunny dining area, and (starting soon) serve espresso.
The contractors are prepping the slab to be painted, framing the privacy walls so that there will be a cooking area and a bathroom area, and adding sinks.
After they move they will become neighbors with projectY cowork Los Alamos, Posada Dental Works, Allure Salon, The Finishing Touch, El Rigoberto’s Taco Shop, Unquarked Wine Bar and Bathtub Row Brewing Company.
Marguerite McClay, the owner of Rose Chocolatier, wanted to let people know that she will continue to be open at their current location at 991 Central Ave. up until the move.
Stop by, or call 695-1156 to make a special order of chocolates or pastries. The website is rosechocolatier.com.
