Did you know Thornton’s has been making delicious chocolates for over a hundred years?

In fact, their very first shop was opened in Sheffield by travelling confectioner Joseph William Thornton in October 1911, who handed the keys to his teenage sons Norman and Stanley and said: “Make this the best sweet shop in town!” Well, they didn’t do a bad job, did they?

2011 saw Thornton’s 100th birthday. Thornton’s is now seen by the great British public as the ultimate chocolate treat on the high street. With over 600 stores across the UK, everyone has their favourite Thornton’s chocolate.
Thornton’s famous Continental chocolates and Special Toffee are still as popular as ever, and new brands such as Moments, Melts and Classics are also new customer favourites.

Here at West Orchards we have friendly experienced staff, to find you the right gift for your loved ones.
