Le Chocoholique Closes Short North Store
After seven years of business at 601 N. High St., Le Chocoholique is ending its brick-and-mortar operations to focus on wholesale and retail accounts.
The store originally opened in the summer of 2010, with the rare story of replacing an underperforming Starbucks location with a locally-operated cafe. The shop featured coffee, chocolates and cocktails, and as CU Food Critic Miriam Bowers Abbott pointed out back in March, “you can kill at least two birds with one stone by trying out a chocolate sampler that features a variety of its boozy flavors.”
The owners of the business have posted the following message on their Facebook page to address the closure:
“After seven years turning their passion for chocolate into an entirely unique form of art and delight in the Short North District of Columbus, Le Chocoholique’s store front is now closing to focus on their partnership with local businesses and corporate partners. Le Chocoholique’s signature truffles are still available in the Columbus area at several retail sites as they continue to grow and are still available online.”
