A passion for chocolate has become a business venture for Angela Alvarez, who has opened a new shop, Choc-a-Bloc, in Exmouth.
Angela’s idea for her business formed after she was made redundant when the Card Bar and Chocolate Destination closed in Exmouth’s Magnolia Centre.
After ‘endless enquiries’ from people asking Angela where they could buy bespoke Belgian chocolate, luxury candles and cards, she looked for a site to open up and fill a gap in the market.
Angela’s shop, at Staples Mews, Exeter Road, was opened on Saturday by Exmouth’s town crier.
“Many have commented online that it’s encouraging to see new small businesses opening up in the town,” said Angela.
