When Lorraine and Mark Dixon purchased Legacy Chocolates in 2012, the shop was located in Menomonie, Wisconsin, but there were countless requests to come back to Saint Paul. The Saint Paul location on Marshall Ave. had closed three years earlier but was never forgotten. In 2014 the Dixons moved the whole operation to the Pioneer Endicott building in downtown. Beyond out of this world truffles, the Dixons added a bakery with a variety of options available daily and hand-poured coffee with fresh roasted beans.
"Legacy Chocolates is dedicated to restoring the fine craft of real chocolate wherever discerning mouths are found. We are committed to the production of fresh, handmade, nutritious, high-quality chocolate at affordable prices. Our intent is to have everyone know about, and fall in love with the earth’s most perfect food - REAL chocolate."
If you're like me and have essentially lost all sense of time, please consider this week's Small Business Spotlight a gentle reminder that Valentine's Day is two weeks away. Whether you're shopping for someone else or yourself (absolutely no shame in that game), it's a good idea to stay ahead of the curve and place a chocolate order with Legacy sooner than later. Orders can be placed online for pick up or delivery, and current shop hours and information can be found here.
This year we'll be regularly featuring the small businesses that make our downtown second to none.
