There might be a silver lining to the departure of one of Brentford’s more interesting independent shops at the closing down sale for Bianca Marton’s Chocolates.

The chocolatier on London Road will be open this Saturday and Sunday with discounts of up to 50% on chocolate with everything priced to go. This also includes stocks of chocolate making, kitchen and shop equipment.

The sale is on from 10am to 7pm on Saturday 7 September and noon to 6pm on Sunday 8 September.

Bianca said, “I planned to re-locate the chocolate making and continue for online and local sales only, but after much deliberation I decided to quit chocolate making altogether. It was a tough decision, and I really hate to disappoint my lovely friends and customers in Brentford. It is necessary though - for personal reasons. I would like to focus on family and health, and achieve a good balance between work and other interests.”

Bianca left her native Hungary in the late 90s and has lived with her family in West London ever since. She worked for Glaxo Smith Kline in the big glass building on the A4. After taking redundancy and becoming a business coach she decided to use her expertise in chocolate making which she acquired while studying in Berlin in the bleakness of the former German Democratic Republic. After three years successfully selling chocolates at Camden, Richmond and Brentford she needed to expand, as she’d outgrown her home kitchen. Writer and broadcaster Jeremy Nicholas liked her sea-salted caramels so much, he decided to make her a Dragon’s Den style offer. He bought a share of the business allowing Bianca to open the chocolate shop in Brentford.
