Update from the shop regarding COVID-19 Virus

A message from our GDC team


As we navigate these uncertain times together, we want you to know that we'll do everything in our power to keep our staff, customers and loved ones safe. Yesterday we closed our shop in Empire, MI to retail sales temporarily in order to help reduce the spread of the COVID-19 virus. We continue to practice rigorous cleaning and sanitation procedures, as we've always done.


Grocer's Daughter Chocolate relies heavily on tourists who are visiting the area and, like other local businesses, we will certainly feel the impact of a significant decrease in revenue. We ask that you do what you can to support local small businesses at this time remembering that many of us are committed to paying our staff as long as we can along with our regular fixed expenses like rent/mortgages, loan payments, etc.


We are confident that sunnier days are ahead, friends. THANK YOU to all of you who have reached out with words of support, placed orders and written reviews on social media. We are wholeheartedly grateful for you and we're fortunate to have such a kind, generous community of friends and customers. If you find yourself in need of a chocolate pick-up during these difficult times but are financially stretched, please do reach out at chocolate@grocersdaughter.com and we'll do what we can.
