Now Open! Alpine Chocolat Haus Stirring to Open in Downtown Plymouth


Now open, the Alpine Chocolat Haus brings another flavor to the downtown Plymouth experience. Although you can buy chocolate and ice cream at any number of enticing shops in the City, you won’t find one with a better location – right across from the Park! The interior design of the shop is modern and inviting. The displays are clean and contemporary while the brick wall adds warmth. The ice-cream display is even at ‘kid-height’ so the young ones can see the frozen treats more easily! At the far end of the store, there’s even a lounge area with comfortable chairs, wi-fi, TV, and iPads for the kids to play on.

The Alpine Chocolat Haus is poised for a stirring grand opening in downtown Plymouth. With construction work nearing completion, the sign was recently unveiled and it does look very tasty good. Posters covering the windows have all the prerequisite marketing language appropriate to Plymouth – words like ‘Artisan’ and ‘Michigan Made’ certainly will resonate with locals as the town gradually shifts slightly more upscale.
