“A total rip off”
Reviewed January 25, 2013

Not worth going to. Walked in the store and seen the prices, could get exact same stuff cheaper in a drug store and the queues were way too long.

“Now thats what l call chocolate”
Reviewed January 16, 2013

What a great place. Although not a chocolate afficianado, in this place l could be converted. Great range, less commercial than competitors and helpful staff. Whilst crowded, and we are talking about Times Square, the sales staff let you peruse at your own pace and not feel pressured. Oh and did l mention the chocolate.

“Very very crowded”
Reviewed January 9, 2013

Visited Hershey's store in times square on a Saturday afternoon and that was our first mistake. the store is so small and there are just way to many people allowed in at the same time.

The sales assistants were helpful but not overly in your face which was good.

The Q for the tills was very long but moved quickly, however the chocolate was nasty.

Should have gone to M&M world

“Nothing Special...”
Reviewed December 12, 2012

We went to the Hershey's in Chicago a few months ago, and it make this Hershey's store very bland and generic. Of course it has all Hershey's products, but not anything real special when compared to Chicago. You can get a 5lb chocolate bar or huge Hershey's syrup coin back, but nothing special.
