Hong Kong’s Harbour City has expanded its celebration of all things choco-tastic with the opening of the ChoConveni convenience store.
The store offers a range of 50 edible chocolates sourced from across the globe, including Switzerland, Belgium, Japan, and Thailand. The store also features chocolate-flavoured cookies and desserts, and chocolate-infused liquors and milk drinks. As for non-edible items, the store includes fine stationery such as chocolate bar towels and “ultra-realistic” chocolate magnets.
Designed by local visual artist Rex Koo, ChoConveni is made from a medley of rows and blocks in brown, gold, and white, with a pair of chocolate bears to welcome visitors at the entrance. To further engage with customers, Harbour City has set up a “Status Wall” photo booth, allowing visitors to take photos based on their relationship statuses.
If that’s not enough for your sweet tooth, this year Harbour City has also invited Kit Kat to set up a pop-up store for the first time with the theme “Create Your Own KIT KAT®”. In addition to the iconic photo spot in front of a gigantic stacking tower in the pop-up store, the store also offers a personalisation service, which allows customers to instantly take a photo and design unique packaging.
What’s more, the Kit Kat pop-up store also offers Kit Kat Chocolatory handcrafted chocolate – popular in Japan and South Korea late year – with four limited-edition flavours including Ruby Chocolate with Rose, Durian Delight, Abundance of Mandarin and Earl Grey Tea with Orange.
Harbour City had already launched an exhibition showcasing the combination of chocolate and machine. We love chocolate but this might be getting obsessive!
