The rumors are true, and altogether bittersweet.

Sweet Decadence Chocolates owner Sandra Wixon announced that the popular Newcastle shop will relocate to The Landing in Renton.

“Moving to The Landing makes sense for the business,” she said in a statement. “The Landing offers a location that’s located just off I-405. It will be easy for customers to find Sweet Decadence in the outdoor village atmosphere with plenty of parking and an array of shopping and dining options.”

Sweet Decadence Newcastle opened its doors May 1, 2008. Since then, the store and Wixon have played important roles in the community.

The store famously played host to events such as the Mack Strong meet-and-greet to benefit TEAM-WORKS, while Wixon has given her time and energy to help organize past Newcastle Days celebrations.

That won’t change when she moves, Wixon said, as she plans to stay involved with the organization of the Newcastle Chamber of Commerce’s beer and wine garden at Newcastle Days.

Wixon’s chocolates have garnered numerous awards, including the honor of best chocolate in Western Washington in King 5 TV’s annual Best of Western Washington awards.

Sweet Decadence also earned best chocolate at the Enumclaw Wine and Chocolate Festival, while Wixon won a Diamond Award in 2009.

“I am excited about opening at our new location at The Landing, but a part of my heart will always remain in Newcastle,” Wixon said.

Much will remain the same at Sweet Decadence’s new location, located just five miles from the current one. The emphasis on specialized gourmet chocolate will continue, as will the popular chocolate and wine pairings. Featured pastries and coffees will also still be served.

The Landing location, though, will have more in-store seating, allowing for more guests to sit and enjoy a coffee or glass of wine as they view the chocolate making. The new shop’s decor features a chocolate theme, which will allow customers a full sensory experience.

The new store will be at 810 N. 10th Place, Suite B. It is set to open no later than Dec. 9, Wixon said.

The Newcastle store will remain in business through mid-December, but if staffing is available, Wixon said the location could stay open through Dec. 24.
