Godiva to Close Three Stores in Las Vegas

Yes, it’s a slow news day.

Three pricey Godiva chocolate shops in Las Vegas are set to close by the end of March 2021.

The three closures in Las Vegas are part of a much larger move by Godiva. The company is shuttering 128 brick-and-mortar stores in the U.S.

We have learned exclusively not all of them are actually constructed from bricks and mortar. You heard it here first!

We figured a topless icon would’ve thrived in Las Vegas. Alas, not.

In Las Vegas, Godiva has retail shops at Fashion Show Mall, the Grand Canal Shoppes at Venetian and Las Vegas North Premium Outlets.

We’ve been told the three Las Vegas locations are already starting to clear out stock with big discounts.

Before the withdrawal symptoms start kicking in, Godiva fans should know they can still get their fix online and at grocery stores.

Godiva retail stores will continue to operate in Europe, the Middle East and Greater China. Once again, Lesser China gets screwed, but that is neither here nor there.

The reason given for the closures is officially “acceleration of changes in consumers’ shopping behavior.”

Translation: Who the hell pays that much for “luxury chocolates” anymore?

On a more serious note, Godiva’s reliance on mall traffic has been seriously affected by the pandemic.

Thankfully, even with the loss of these Godiva shops, Las Vegas has ample options for overpaying for things.

For example, a bottle of “luxury (Fiji) water” at Aria costs $21.95. And water won’t make you gain weight or get cavities!

See? There’s a bright side to everything.

    Love your “slow news day” stories as they still give smiles/laughs from your wit !
    I knew Aria is a bit pricey for me but still wasn’t prepared for that 21.95 bottle of water – that’s not sarcasm right ? LOL

    Yeah, $21 dollars for Fiji water… I never even look at in room snack options, I’m worried my eyeball gaze might move the items a smidgeon, I would hate to have to go nuts shouting about $27 bags of nuts at check-out… Plus I love me some ABC Store, when I was a kid the ABC Store on Waikiki Beach sold freaking firecrackers, by the brick, I am lucky to emerge with all my fingers…
