Rachelle and Aaron Blackmer, who run one Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory store on Sullivan Road in the Valley, will open their second area franchise inside River Park Square on or about May 20. Godiva closed down in January.
The couple has been in the Valley for more than two years. They'll fill the spot under the escalator on the main floor. They expect to have five employees, said Rachelle Blackmer.
About 60 percent of the items they sell they make themselves; the rest is provided by Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory's main office.
Big sellers are the 30 or so different flavor caramel apples. The No. 2 top seller is dipped strawberries.
Fudge and other confections will also be sold.
