Some delectable delights will soon fill a shop window in Stony Brook Village giving chocolate lovers a reason to rejoice.

Chocolate Works, a franchise chocolatier, will fill the space left vacant by Welcome Home. The shop is an extension of New York based 5th Avenue Chocolatier and promises an "interactive chocolate experience". 

According to the company website, the store will offer freshly dipped chocolates, colorful displays of candy, chocolates, nuts, and dried fruit, and will gives a free sample of their signature cocoa-dusted fresh cream truffle to customers. Children's birthday parties are also available for kids who want to make and taste their goodies.

The franchise was started by the Whaley family after 40 years of success in the chocolate business.

The store will be the second chocolate shop in the village, just a few doors down from Godiva. Candy Land Creations, also sweet shop offering chocolates and candies is located on Main Street in Setauket. 

There is no set opening date according to Marie Gilberti, communications manager for the Ward Melville Heritage Organization, who said the store will be "opening soon."

I work there. We are less than thrilled about it

Nuts? Yes, I think someone must be!? ...and Godiva has been holding its own for years!?

Wow. Just what we need and who made this brilliant decision? Beyond time for a change!

Nice cheese shop would have been a better choice..

Anything but another chocolate shop. And I miss Talbots. Does anyone know what's happening to the Brook House? Is it true that it has closed. I forgot to look when I was at post office yesterday.

This is the dumbest choices for the village. Do we really need another chocolate shop or are they trying to push Godiva out? How about bringing back Bass shoes?
Carol DeGregorio December 17, 2013 at 07:00 PM
surprised with Godiva being there....I would think a different specialty shop would be a better idea

I agree with these comments. How are these decisions being made? Makes no business sense which reflects the poor leadership of WM Foundation

The WM foundation needs to revamp itself.......it is a ghost town in the village......so great in the village for the past forty years but now it us terrible.Definitely more empty stores coming soon.
