Sadly, I received a call from Heather this afternoon, telling me that Cocoa and Cream is closing up shop. The sweet little store in the village will scoop its last cone on Sunday. She sent this email earlier this afternoon:
It is with a heavy heart that we are announcing that after 5 years in Magnolia, Cocoa & Cream is closing on September 23, 2012. Despite all the energy and effort that we have put into the shop it has not attracted enough business to sustain. We will miss all our loyal customers, the happy kids, our Halloween costume contest, spring egg hunt and summer fest talent show. Thank you to all of you who supported us throughout the years and made this such a fun place to come to work.
As we move on we hope to someday resurrect Cocoa & Cream. It is such a cheerful place that has put smiles on many faces.
Please stop by this weekend to say goodbye. Everything will be 30% off on Friday, 40% off on Saturday, and 50% off on Sunday while supplies last.
Now for our happy ending: we are starting a dessert catering company. Happy Endings Dessert Catering will continue to bring happiness through sweets. So, if you need a candy buffet, ice cream sundae bar, afternoon tea, party favors, or a dessert extravaganza at any special occasion, child’s birthday party, corporate event, shower or wedding please keep us in mind. Every event deserves a Happy Ending! www.Happyendingsdessert.com
Heather, Mark, Lucy and Jasper
Good luck on your new venture! Thank you for your years of service to our community. You will be missed.
