News about Mary Ann's Chocolates Retail Store in Gaslight Village, East Grand Rapids, MI
We have finalized the sale of our Gaslight Village store, Mary Ann's Chocolates, to Sweetie-licious, a wonderful bakery with their flagship store in Dewitt, MI. Maybe you have tasted some of their delicious baked goods? At their downtown Grand Rapids location, they are the first proprietor you see when you walk into the new Downtown Market.
The new owners are delightful, energetic caring people and have an exciting vision for the EGR Gaslight Village store. Although the store name will change to Sweetie-licious, many of our favorite items in the store will remain, such as Mary Ann's Chocolates, Illy coffee and the kid's favorite, icy-cold slushies. What's really exciting is that in addition to keeping these wonderful products there will be the addition of their outstanding pies, cookies and other baked sweet treats. We have enjoyed their products and know you will too. Sweetie-licious founder Linda Hundt has been featured on the Today Show, and her pies are featured nationally in Williams Sonoma! Their story and great cookbook can be found in Barnes and Noble, and if you're interested, you can check them out at www.sweetie-licious.com.
We wanted to share our news, but also, we want to thank you for all of your support of Mary Ann's Chocolates over the years. Mary Ann's Chocolates will remain a very special place in our hearts, and we know, for many of you, it will remain special too. Mary Ann Maloley brought Grand Rapids the best chocolates in the country. We will forever remember her first store in Breton Village, and we will forever know the difference between chocolate and Mary Ann's Chocolates!
