Established as a single shopfront by Czechoslovakian and German immigrants Richard and Rose Adler, The Chocolate Box’s significance has grown steadily over time and is now an icon having served three generations of local families and shoppers.

The new-look flagship store in Burke Road features more than 2000 different chocolate and sweet products in its range.

According to Marion Adler Bishop, daughter of the original owners and now co-owner with her brother Gary Adler, The Chocolate Box has an embedded place in Camberwell’s retail history and the staff is looking forward to reacquainting themselves with the locals after a 12-week absence.

“Our Camberwell store manager, Ms Kay Thurston has been with us for more than 20 years and she knows many of the customers by name as well as their favourite chocolate indulgences,” said Ms Adler Bishop.

 “That’s all part of our history at Camberwell, we’ve been there for so long that we’re actually part of the community,” she said.

The Chocolate Box has eight stores in and around Melbourne – two in Collins Street in the CBD, two at the Melbourne Airport and one each at Crown Casino, Eastland and Malvern as well as the flagship store at Camberwell.
