The City of Fall River is about to smell a little sweeter.
Dorothy Cox Chocolates is set to open a new location at the old Save A Lot building at 100 Griffin Street.
The founder, Mary Dorothy Cox, was a Fall River native who started selling her chocolates in 1928 after making them in her kitchen. 3rd and 4th generation candy makers currently use family recipes to create their chocolates.

The chocolatier is known for premium chocolate and high quality ice cream. The different variety of chocolates are too many to count in addition to their chocolate covered fruits, pretzels, nuts, jelly beans, cookie dough, and espresso beans.
Dorothy Cox’s Candies & Ice Cream currently has a location on Berdon Way in Fairhaven in addition to an online store. A Wareham location is currently listed as temporarily closed.
Years ago, Fall River had a retail location that sold the chocolates where the current courthouse stands on South Main Street.
Shirley Cox confirmed that they are opening a new Fall River location that has yet to set an estimated opening date with more location details to come.
