I read an interesting and kind of sad story in my local newspaper the other morning.
I was reading about one of the oldest candy shops in the city totally having their chocolate stock ruined because their central heating and air conditioning system had broke down overnight.
This time of the year because of how hot it is, you need to have central air conditioning in places like that so things do not melt! Well, that is exactly what happened. All their chocolate melted. That is the drawback of owning a candy shop I suppose. Having your air conditioning system go out in the wee hours when no one is there in the middle of a super hot summer. They mentioned in the article that the shop is going to have to order a whole new supply of chocolate and this could mean several weeks with none being in stock. This is going to hurt business a bit for sure, but I don’t think it would be enough for them to go broke because of how long they have been around for. But I do feel for them. They mentioned that the second they got in that very next morning that they called for emergency heating and air conditioning services to have the central heating and air conditioning system repaired. But that still didn’t save the day. They have other candy in there that doesn’t require central air conditioning to keep it fresh, but the majority of their sales was always about their different forms of chocolate. And now that they don’t have any cause of the broken down air conditioning, things are not so great.
