A new chocolate shop is opening its doors on The Avenue.

Husband-and-wife team Todd and Michelle Zimmerman are opening Charm City Chocolate at 809 W. 36th St. in Hampden. The shop held a soft opening earlier this year and opens for good on Feb. 3.

The owners are pulling from family recipes to create their confections, including cordial cherries, barks, truffles and a specialty chocolate called Chesapeake Crunch. The shop also sells gummies, jelly beans and other old-fashioned candies.

It's the couple's first retail venture together. Michelle Zimmerman was a longtime design and lifestyles editor at The Baltimore Sun before she left in December.

The store is open from noon to 7 p.m. on Sundays, Wednesdays and Thursdays, and noon to 8 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays.
