More than 100 people gathered to celebrate the move to the former Mountain View Chocolate Shoppe at 248 Wilton Road. Wotton thanked the many volunteers and donors who helped renovate the former shop into a warm welcome center.
To Wotton’s left, Lorna Dee Nichols, executive director of the Franklin County Chamber of Commerce, said
she was pleased with the new location that will provide better exposure to the Wilton Road and space for a welcome center and meetings. “It’s very festive, don’t you think?” Nichols said. The former location was a few miles west at 407 Wilton Road, next to the Fabric Inn. The Mountain View Chocolate Shoppe, which was located at the Chamber’s new site, moved and reopened in West Farmington, next to the Post Office, earlier this year.
