PERTH chocolate lovers are set for a treat, with Swiss chocolatiers Lindt & Sprüngli opening their first ever shop in WA.

The shop will be located at the Watertown Brand Outlet Centre, and the grand opening will be on Thursday September 7 at 9am.

The first 100 customers who spend $10 or more will walk away with a free kilogram of Lindor balls, with the company hopeful of giving away 400kg of free chocolate.

Customers will also get 50 per cent off the pick and mix range of Lindor balls until September 24.

The Perth Chocolate Shop will offer a wide range of premium chocolate products, including many varieties exclusive to Lindt Chocolate Shops and Cafés.

The Lindt Chocolate Bar will sell Lindt’s decadent signature hot chocolates, mocha and milkshakes.

“We are delighted to be expanding into the WA market,” said Stephen Loane, CEO of Lindt Australia.

“Following the nationwide success of our Chocolate Shops, we know customers in Perth will enjoy indulging in our signature chocolate drinks and the wide range of Lindt chocolate products we have on offer.”

Founded in 1845, Lindt & Sprüngli is one of the world’s oldest and most renowned chocolate companies.

Much loved for its unique design, the company has provided chocolate lovers with a composition that revels in the juxtaposition of solid and luxuriously glossy chocolate.

There are currently twelve Lindt Chocolate Shops and six Lindt Chocolate Cafes located across Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide, Brisbane, Gold Coast, Canberra and Perth.
