Just like you can’t go to a candy shop without buying something, the Hershey’s experience isn’t truly complete without a bit of shopping and The Hotel Hershey, is the perfect place to indulge in some retail therapy. A one stop shop of sorts, the hotel is home to a bunch of charming little boutiques. The Jeweler is a treasure chest of watches, jewellery boxes and exquisite jewellery from the likes of Meira T, and Links of London – the unique Le Vian’s chocolate diamonds available at the shop, are in particular, a store favourite, while the Storied Home is the place to be for home décor apparel. Housing a whole range of quirky items from gift able aluminium pieces and signature items from Mariposa to lovely décor from Chehoma Ben’s Garden and Fishe’s Eddy to local, fresh olive oils and balsamic vinegars, come here if you are in want of a great gift!
The Hotel Hershey is also home to a darling little confection shop selling some of the most sumptuous desserts – think signature cupcakes, sea-salted caramels, chocolate-covered strawberries and creamy Mazzoli ice-cream recreated using the original recipe of Chef Fred Mazzoli, the personal dairy chef of Milton S. Hershey himself. The Spa Boutique is also another quaint, inviting shopping destination at the hotel. Choose from a range of exclusive Chocolate Spa products, scented candles, speciality body and bath products along with brand apparel from the likes of Lilly Pulitzerand BedHead pyjamas. However, the fantasy-like hotel isn’t the only shopping destination in town, the Crossroads Antique Mall too makes for a great shopping destination, especially for collectors of all things antique. Rustic furniture, primitives, pottery, glass, dolls, toys and an impressive collection of china porcelain are all on offer at the mall. But beware, browsing always leads to buying at this chest of collectibles!
