Elmwood College’s new venture, the Pop-up Shop is continuing to go from strength to strength. Thorntons confectionary shop recently used Elmwood’s facilities and the chocolate treats proved to be a huge success. There was everything from chocolate bunnies to chocolate bars, but proving to be most popular were the personalised Easter Eggs.
Val Lee, Thorntons Manager said, “This has been a fantastic opportunity for us to come into the College and show staff and students that Thorntons can accommodate everyone’s budget. We offer a wide variety of chocolates and we thought that it was important for people to see that a little bit of luxury can be affordable. Thorntons is not just a chocolate shop, we also offer special services such as icing chocolate gifts for free, which people don’t often realise. The Pop-up Shop is something we would be looking to do on a regular basis, as there was such a positive response.”
Lisan Donald, The Enterprise Manager at Elmwood College commented, “We are delighted to have yet another successful Pop-up Shop at the Elmwood Campus. We are looking to extend the range of goods offered by our Pop-up Shop facility to our College community and would welcome enquiries from businesses wishing to take advantage of this opportunity to sell on Campus.”
