Hershey's Store Right Next To Ghirardelli Shop

2005_03_hershey.jpgLast July Chicagoist mentioned that we're getting a Hershey's store in town. Well, last week we passed by the store site and it says it should be completed in June of this year. Funny thing, though. The location of the Hershey's store is pretty much right across the street from the Ghirardelli shop. We know that Ghirardelli is more upscale than Hersheys, that it tries to be more like a soda fountain with sundaes and shakes and huge ass cookies and Hersheys is more.. well.. Hershey's... but can that little water tower square on North Michigan Avenue really support TWO chocolate shops?

Actually, with our love of chocolate, Chicagoist may have just found our new summer hang-out. And conveniently there are plenty of clothing stores nearby to help us out when our waistline starts to bust out of our pants. Or else we'll just skip both these shops and go for gold at the hometown favorite, Vosges!
