Candy sales

What we need more of: Chocolate sales

Wednesday, May 13th, 2009

In this economy, we’re all looking for “little luxuries” that make us feel good without spending big bucks. Good chocolate, for example. Not the stuff that leaves a waxy film on the roof of your mouth. Chocolate Celeste in St. Paul has had some good 50 percent off sales. Get on the email list for notifications. B.T. McElrath is another highly regarded local chocolatier and best of all, he’s having a sale Friday and Saturday during Art-a-Whirl.

Save 30 to 70 percent on seasonal close-outs, overruns, and a few items created for the sale. Chocolate and candy items will sell for $3 to $20 on sale. Sample items include a 16 or 20 piece giftbox for $8 to $10 and the popular grabbags for $7 with miscellaneous assortments.

Sale hours are 2 to 7 p.m. Friday May 15 and 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday May 16. B.T. McElrath is located at 2010 E. Hennepin Avenue in Minneapolis.
