The Newfoundland Chocolate Company is permanently closing all three of their locations in Nova Scotia over the impact from the COVID-19 pandemic.
In a statement posted on their Facebook page this week, owners Christina Dove and Brent Smith said the impact from the COVID-19 pandemic “was simply too great on our family company and we are heartbroken to have to keep our doors closed in Nova Scotia.”
The company is permanently shuttering all three Halifax-area locations at the Halifax Shopping Centre, Mic Mac Mall and Sunnyside Mall.
“We look forward to opening our Newfoundland locations soon, and currently remain operating from our online shop and phone-in orders at 141 Torbay Road,” the owners wrote on their Facebook page. “We want to sincerely thank you all so much for supporting local and being a part of our family for the last 12 years and the last 5 in Nova Scotia.”
On Tuesday, the Nova Scotia government announced many businesses forced to close under the COVID-19 public health orders will be permitted to reopen on June 5, including restaurants, bars, hair salons and more.
