Following its recent expansion in Silver Street, Leicester’s award-winning, artisan
chocolatier, Cocoa Amore is launching a new pop-up shop in Highcross on 14 March 2016.
Located on the first floor, opposite Boots, the pop-up shop will be available seven days a
week, in line with Highcross trading hours, until Saturday 25 March.
Stocked ready for Easter the shop will offer unique chocolate eggs, custom chocolate bars
and artisan chocolates made with cocoa from around the equator. Managing Director, Pete
Gardner, explains ‘Hammerson of Highcross are keen to support independent traders
across the city. They presented us with the perfect opportunity to reach a new audience.
Shoppers are often pushed for time so we’ve decided to come to them this Easter without
them needing to leave Highcross. Obviously we hope they’ll like what they see and they’re
always welcome to visit us in Silver Street. Leicester has so much to offer with so many
independent retailers on our doorsteps – we hope to showcase the diverse range of
products we have on offer, outside of the shopping centre, but within it.’
In addition to edible gifts, customers can also purchase vouchers for exclusive tasting
experiences, chocolate making workshops and subscriptions to Cocoa Amore’s chocolate
club, delivering a selection of chocolates to their door, all from the Highcross pop-up shop.
Cocoa Amore welcomes customers old and new to visit their pop-up shop this Easter and
also their flagship store in Silver Street to enjoy a selection of hot chocolates, liquors and
desserts from their monthly menus.
