Did You Forget Valentine’s Day? Local Chocolate Shop Open Extended Hours To Rescue Your Love Life.
By Sunshine Baker
If you’ve been caught up in a busy week, and just didn’t have time to shop, you might resort to running into a local drugstore to try to find a last-minute gift for your Valentine. But it can be hard to find something that, well, doesn’t’t’ look like it came from a drugstore. You want to give an impressive gift that will win your Valentine’s heart, right?
This year, forgetful sweethearts are in luck, because Winter Park’s premiere chocolate shop, Peterbrooke Chocolatier, is open extended hours all week. On February 14, Valentine’s Day, which is this Friday (hint, hint, gentlemen!) they are open from 6am to 11:15pm! You can even call the store to place your order and pay by phone, and they will run your order out to your car with their curbside delivery service.
If you don’t want to stop by the store, Peterbrooke also delivers for Valentine’s Day. Their Valentine’s menu is posted on Facebook, so it’s easy to browse online: https://www.facebook.com/
Two of Peterbrooke’s specialties are their gorgeous long-stemmed chocolate covered strawberries and their chocolate dipped wine bottles. They have gift baskets of every size, heart-shaped boxes, decorated cookies, chocolate roses, and pretty much everything your Valentine could ever want. Chocolate footballs delight NFL fans, and their exclusive Jami Shoo chocolate shoes are the perfect setting for a special gift- maybe even an engagement ring?!
While you’re there, make sure to try their new Truffle Cookies, rich and chewy with crunchy macadamia nuts. These cookies were invented by the original Peterbrooke founders and they are truly a marvel of chocolate perfection.
So there is truly no excuse for passing off a lame drugstore present this year. Chocolate is the way to your true love’s heart, and Peterbrooke has the finest in town. Their shop is on the corner of Park Avenue and New England Avenue in Winter Park’s historic district, and their phone number is (407) 644-3200. Happy Valentine’s Day!
