Neighbourhood Fire Closes Gem Chocolates Temporarily

The neighbourhood blaze that swept through seven businesses in Kerrisdale has forced the temporary closure of our shop given its very close proximity.

Our hearts go out to our seven neighbours who lost their businesses (and an eighth whose business was damaged and is now closed), but are thankful there were no injuries during the blaze that started last night and burned through the night. Thank you to all the first responders who dealt with the blaze so professionally.

We are currently without electricity and await power resumption so we can assess and clean up any perishables from our freezer and refrigerator. We will re-open as soon as we can.

Thank you for your patience.
