The store will be in the Arc Shopping Centre and will open for business on October 21.

A spokeswoman for the Huntingdon-based company said the store will create seven permanent jobs with the number of staff expected to rise to 10 at Christmas.

She added “The new store will feature our new cocoa nib Ice Cream of the Gods, which is exclusive to select stores.

“You’ll find everything from elegant gift boxes of chocolate to your everyday chocolate fix, all made according to our mantra – More Cocoa, Less Sugar – for a satisfying cocoa hit.”

Visitors to the store on opening day will be treated to free chocolate samples, a glass of Hotel Chocolat’s prosecco to celebrate and 15 per cent off throughout the store.
