Lindt Chocolates New Westminster

Comments 47 by Rebecca Bollwitt

The Lindt Chocolates boutique at Queensborough landing in New Westminster is hosting an exclusive VIP event this week. Olympic Gold Medalists and World Champions, Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir will be in attendance along with a select audience to celebrate Skate Canada’s finale which is coming to Vancouver.

VIP guests will be invited to come meet Tessa and Scott, tour the boutique, and learn how to make Lindor chocolate truffles. If you would like to attend simply RSVP in the comments section of this post. The first 25 Miss604 readers will gain entry (for themselves plus a guest) to the exclusive party on Thursday, May 17, 2012 at 4:00pm.

On a related note, I have been fortunate enough to visit Lindt and Sprungli in Kilchberg, Switzerland, East of Zurich. I heard about the history of the company, shopped in their mega holiday store, and learned how to do a proper chocolate tasting.

The Lindt boutique in New Westminster is located at 805 Boyd Street, at Queensborough Landing. The VIP event will run from 4:00pm to 5:00pm as guests get time to sample chocolates with Virtue & Moir.

When we reach 25 RSVPs on this post I will leave a comment as a cut-off point and follow up with the guests. Any comments after the cut-off will be on the waiting list in case there’s a cancellation.

    @Ryan – I’ll confirm that it’s the same location but that’s likely. It’s the ‘official’ opening of a boutique & Skate Canada event (plus VIP event) even though the outlet has probably been there for some time.
