Kilwins Chocolates and Ice Cream to open in Arcarde Building in the River Market

Kilwins Chocolates and Ice Cream has leased 1,200 square feet in the new Arcade Building in the River Market on the corner of President Clinton Avenue and the pedestrian alley next to Ron Robinson Theatre. Kilwins, a chain with more than 80 stores across the United States, will offer up fresh chocolate, fudge, corns, caramel apples, brittle, shakes, sundaes, gourmet coffee, smoothies and specialty drinks. This is the first franchise location in Arkansas — they're typically in tourist spots, so it should fit right in at the River Market. Maybe a post-movie shake after catching a flick at Ron Robinson will be what the doctor ordered .

According to Kilwins director of marketing Jeff Hall, the store is schedule to open some time in late August to early September. 

Meanwhile Bespoke Barakat, a men's boutique clothing store, has leased the 900-square-foot space adjacent to Kilwins.

  • Cats and dogs

    I've always been leery of people who dislike animals. To my wife and me, a house without dog hair in the corners and a cat perched on the windowsill is as barren as a highway rest stop. We're down to three dogs and two cats, the smallest menagerie we've had for years.
