Lindt opens their first boutique store in the Mother City

On the 24 November 2016, Lindt & Sprüngli South Africa opened its doors to its first LINDT Chocolate Boutique at Canal Walk Shopping Centre, and we had the pleasure of attending the grand opening.

The store was officially opened by LINDT Master Chocolatier, Dimo Simatos, and 5FM’s DJ Fix, at a ceremony attended by some of the city’s key media and personalities.

Open just in time for the festive season, this amazing new store follows the opening of those situated in Jozi and Durbs and is a must-visit spot for all chocolate lovers in the Western Cape – I can see it being my new fave spot!

Offering a wide selection of Lindt Christmas products – including the new LINDOR Gold Range and the iconic, heartwarming LINDT TEDDY, as well as the usual suspects – chocolate lovers will not be disappointed!

My fave aspect of the new store – although it as hard to choose just one – was the impressive LINDOR Pick & Mix Station, which offers customers the opportunity to customise their Christmas gifting with a wide range of irresistibly smooth melting LINDOR flavours.

“Whilst we have had a presence in the city for many years now thanks to our Green Point Chocolate Studio, this new LINDT Chocolate Boutique will finally give consumers in the Mother City a chance to fully immerse themselves in the world of premium chocolate,” explains Sandro Weber, Acting CEO of Lindt & Sprüngli South Africa.

What else is on this Christmas with Lindt?

Studio classes:

If you are looking for something fun to do with the kids, LINDT will be offering chocolate making classes over the festive season, where you will be able to create your very own LINDT TEDDY under the guidance of the LINDT Master Chocolatiers.

These festive season classes will be available at both Cape Town and Johannesburg LINDT Chocolate Studios from 3 to 29 December 2016. To secure your spot, visit

MyTEDDY – Personalise your LINDT TEDDY ribbon:

I did this last year, and it was a huge hit! This Christmas, show that special someone how much you care by giving them their very own personalised LINDT TEDDY.

Simply purchase a 100g LINDT TEDDY from participating Pick n Pay stores,  and our LINDT Ribbon Makers will print a personalised red ribbon bearing your loved one’s name and lovingly tie it onto your LINDT TEDDY.

Only available at participating Pick n Pay stores from 17 to 24 December 2016. Visit for further details on My TEDDY and other LINDT Christmas activations.
