When a wall closes, a window opens

Exciting construction progress continues at our first location.

We have discovered and revealed some old secrets. And we have hidden some new secrets in the walls to await future generations...

Daylight!

Daylight!

These two original windows, boarded up for perhaps 20 years, have been revealed and opened up again. They will allow natural light into the store. We also put a nice big new "Coming Soon" sign in the front windows. Hello to everyone on the M79 bus!

Walls arriving.

Walls arriving.

Our new walls have arrived and are going up. Before we put up the walls, we sealed in a time capsule bearing our warm wishes for the future. What irreplaceable memories will be made between these walls, we wonder?

In our time capsule: today's papers, some of our business cards, a 2014 penny, an email with an update about the construction of the store, postcards, and a note to the future from our team (text intentionally obscured here). "Our wish for all who visit or work here: health & happiness. -- The founding team of Voilà Chocolat"

Our best wishes, sealed in one of our original chocolate packages, being installed into the wall of the store.
