'Moms are Essential' Update from the Chocolate Shop

Hello dear ones,

We plan to be OPEN for Mother's Day shipping and pick-up/delivery starting Monday April 27th.

We've been closed this week to do our part to help reduce the spread of the virus, especially when we learned of an outbreak at our beloved USPS in southern Michigan, and to give our small staff a well deserved break after a very busy Easter (thank you so much for all the orders!).

These past weeks we've been operating with a tiny crew - our head chocolatier, Sarah, and one owner -  and we're doing the best we can to keep the chocolate flowing. We've been able to keep our winter staff employed and paid, even if they are not working at the shop, and we're optimistic that we'll continue to do so for at least a couple of months. Please bear with us as we navigate these uncertain times with a smaller crew than usual. 

At this point we've heard from many of you that you'd like to continue ordering and we've observed similar businesses continue to ship and offer a safe/sanitary pick-up options, as well.

All of this is to say we will be re-opening for Mother's Day shipping and pick-up/delivery. Check back soon for offerings, follow us on social media or sign-up for our e-newsletter.

Thank you and we hope you are staying safe and sane!


The GDC family
