A new branch of Thorntons has opened in Andover town centre today (Saturday 10th January 2015).
The well-stocked chocolate shop is full to bursting with chocolate treats and gifts that are perfect for a special occasion or treat.
Brought to Andover by Dave and Chrissy Stanbridge, Thorntons is the perfect compliment to the couple’s already thriving Andover business, Tip Top Balloons, meaning that not only can you buy the perfect chocolate gifts, you can also buy the perfect balloon to go with it.
Sir George Young MP attended to open the new-look shop, bought a box of Thorntons chocolates and said, “I am really pleased that Thorntons has come to Andover and I hope it will be a great success.”
Speaking to Chrissy, she said, “We really wanted to bring something new to Andover, and after some searching, decided that balloons and chocolates went perfectly together. We have already sent out lovely Thorntons smiley-face bags of chocolate as weights with balloons for a children’s party today.
“We have had a lovely, busy day already and we were thrilled that Sir George was able to come along and officially open our new venture. We hope that Andover is pleased with the new addition and will make good use of us.”
Tip Top Balloons and Thorntons are in Union Street, Andover and are open Mon-Fri 9.30am-5.30pm and on Saturday 9am-5pm.
