Eat chocolate, buy Taza Dollars for flood help

July 26, 2010

Support Taza Chocolate’s flood recovery and shop for delicious chocolate and other great Taza stuff. Taza Dollars are $10 shopping certificates printed on recycled Taza 80% Stone Ground Bar wrappers, good toward any purchase at the soon-to-be-opened Taza Factory Store. Buying Taza Dollars is a great way to help Taza generate much-needed cash for their post-flood rebuild and get some of our signature stone ground chocolate treats for yourself. Taza Dollars also make a terrific gift for Boston-area chocolate lovers and buy-local supporters.

Taza Dollars are good at the Taza Factory Store only, and are not valid online. The new store will be located at 561 Windsor St. in Somerville (expected opening Aug-Sept, 2010). Taza Dollars have no expiration date, but the entire value of a Taza Dollars certificate must be used on a single purchase. No balance can be carried and they have no cash value.
