Azure Chocolat, one of Long Island’s best chocolate shops, is shutting its retail store in Greenlawn; the 10-year-old company will continue to sell its sweets online (at azurechocolat.com) and to wholesale customers. Owner Heather Rushforth-Foley will move operations to the Stony Brook small-business incubator in Calverton. Longtime manager Allison Krueger will be moving upstate to manage a bakery-chocolate shop in Buffalo.
The store’s last day will be July 3, and on that last day, truffles, usually $2, will be selling for $1. Everything else in the store will be discounted by 25 percent.
To help customers make the transition from bricks-and-mortar to the online store, Azure is offering free shipping on all internet orders from Aug. 1 through the end of 2014. Just enter the code LOVEYOUXO when you check out.
