The Sunshine State is about to get a new chocolate-coated ray of decadence with a Lindt store opening at Brisbane’s Skygate DFO this August! The first Lindt store to open in Queensland, the Skygate location promises to deliver 31 flavours of Lindor balls to our waiting tastebuds.
These premium flavours include such delights as champagne, raspberry, cappuccino, Irish crème and even caramel brownie, as well as classic milk, dark, and hazelnut chocolates. Be still our chocolate-loving hearts!
With eight cafes and four chocolate shops already open and operating in Sydney and Melbourne, we’re more than ready to sink our teeth into some Lindt deliciousness in our own backyard.
“For many Brisbane locals a visit to one of our Sydney or Melbourne locations is a must-do when visiting the city, and we now look forward to serving them closer to home,” Lindt Australia CEO, Stephen Loane, said.
Although different to the Lindt cafes you know and love in the south, this amazing new chocolate shop will also have a bar dedicated to serving hot and cold chocolate drinks. Our mouths are watering already – we want a Lindt Mocha now!
The new Lindt Chocolate Shop will provide chocoholic Brisbanites (and visiting chocolate lovers) with a memorable shopping experience. Offering the widest range of premium Lindt chocolate products available under one roof in Australia, the Skygate store will deliver the ultimate chocolate experience in a unique environment.
While it’s not quite the Lindt version of Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory that we’ve been dreaming of, our love for Lindt chocolate means we can’t wait until this amazing store is finally open. Lindt has been making their delectable gourmet chocolate since 1845, and we’re pleased that after 170 years of expert chocolate-making we’ll have a store of our own to visit.
The DFO store will follow a $30m expansion of Skygate that will add an extra 5000 square metres of retail space to the site.
“This is an exciting time for Lindt and we are looking forward to working with DFO Brisbane to lay down the foundations of this new an exciting concept in Queensland,” Mr Loane said, adding that the company hoped to open more shops in the state."
