As this real estate listing hinted, Chocolates by Kelly will be closing their location at 600 North 29th Street this Sunday.
The chocolatier expanded into a new production facility on Everett Streer off Jefferson Davis Highway last November, and sells chocolates through Outpost on Forest Hill Avenue.
Owner Kelly Walker Wombold says, “We are certainly not going out of business and employees will have the opportunity to come work in our production kitchen or at one of the many farmer’s markets we will be involved in around town.”
“It is a tough call but I gave it two years,” says Wombed of the 29th Street location. “We have never reached the numbers we need over there.”
The Church Hill store will close at 6:00 PM on Sunday evening, April 24th.
