Chocolate Shop Permanently Closed in Mosaic District

A shop selling hand-made chocolates has closed in the Mosaic District.

After eight years in the shopping center, Artisan Confections closed the store due to “economic fallout from COVID-19,” owner Jason Andelman posted on Facebook on Friday, July 17.

“We had a good run — but in this uncertain retail environment, staying operational there was not financially feasible,” Andelman wrote. “It was a bittersweet (pun intended) departure, but we are grateful to be able to carry on in Arlington as we have since 2006.”

Now, Artisan Confections is offering in-store pick-up from the Arlington location on certain days, along with online shopping, according to its website.

“The Arlington location will continue to operate under a limited schedule for the rest of the summer,” Andelman wrote. “We will still be shipping chocolates throughout the continental U.S. (we use thermal packaging and ice packs to deal with the heat) via our website.”

The Mosaic District has seen a number of changes recently. BGR Burger Grilled Right, Cheesetique and GreatGatherings all shuttered their locations there recently. Meanwhile, Madison Reed opened its new store and color bar in the shopping center.
