Now Open: Chesapeake Chocolates’ Expanded Store

Chesapeake Chocolates

Chesapeake Chocolates is now open in the former space occupied by Lake Anne Florist Virginia Wine & Gourmet at 11426 Washington Plaza.

Virginia Wine & Gourmet had held a spot at Lake Anne Plaza since 1996. Owner Linda Fuller decided to retire and closed the store at the end of February.

Chesapeake Chocolates owner Doris Tyler, who had rented a tiny counter in a portion of the florist for the last seven years, has expanded into the rest of the store and leased it back from Fuller.

Chesapeake Chocolates held its grand reopening on Saturday,during the Virginia Polar Dip, which brought hundreds of people to the plaza.

Chesapeake Chocolates specializes in hand-dipped milk, dark and white chocolates. In additional to traditional varieties, Tyler has a large collection of chocolate molds and can custom make anything from a bushel of chocolate crabs to a collection of chocolate seashells or race cars, all of which would make a good gift for Valentine’s Day.

Chesapeake Chocolates will also carry other gift items such as handmade soaps and other gourmet snacks.

The store is open Tuesdays through Fridays, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturdays, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. It is closed Sundays and Mondays. They can be reached at 703-620-0082.
