The downtown sweet shop visited by a president four years ago continues to lead sales of a deluxe Belgian chocolate.
The Frenchman's Corner on East Davis Street in Culpeper announced this week its designation - four years running - as the No. 1 independent retailer of Neuhaus Chocolates for 2012. Marc and Meg Ast own three Frenchman's establishments, including shops in Fredericksburg and Charlottesville. They plan to open a fourth selling chocolates, tea and coffee on the Downtown Mall in C'ville next year, according to a release.
