Chocolate All-Nighter Planned for Babylon and Patchogue Villages
Kilwins Stays Open 24 Hours, Starting Dec. 23

BABYLON, NY. December 1, 2016 —John Murray, owner of Kilwins in Babylon Village and the newly opened Patchogue location, has just confirmed their plans to stay open 24+ hours from December 23rd through Christmas Eve for a shopping all-nighter based on their wildly successful 2015 Valentine’s Day 24-hour event.  Kilwins is the only Long Island chocolatier to offer this service to late-night workers and last-minute shoppers. Kilwins has two convenient Long Island locations participating in this holiday shopping event, 130 Deer Park Avenue in Babylon Village and 74 East Main St, Patchogue. 

December can be one of the most stressful months of the year.  Shoppers are on a quest for the perfect gift and many lie awake at night making lists, tossing and turning with fear that someone—a cousin, neighbor, teacher, hairdresser, or work assistant might be forgotten.  90% of respondents to a 2011 Consumer Reports survey reported that they get stressed out over at least one thing during the holiday season, with 28% citing gift shopping as a specific stressor. With the overnight extended hours, Kilwins will offer the perfect solution to holiday gift-giving—delicious, hand-made, one-size-fits-all, no-gift-receipt-needed confections.    

“We got rave reviews from truly grateful customers for our overnight Valentine’s Day event, so we’re busy working to try to make it a holly jolly night for all shoppers this holiday,” said Murray. “Those most appreciative were customers working non-standard hours like those employed in the hospitality, medical, or public works fields,” added Murray. 

Chocolates, and the many delectable sweets offered at Kilwins, make great gifts.  Not sure of what to get your landlady, how about handmade sea salt caramel fudge?  You picked someone from another department in your office secret Santa, get him some holiday chocolate bark or caramel popcorn.  Visiting a friend, bring the hostess some festive chocolate covered pretzels and some holiday cheer.  The options are endless and the knowledgeable staff, dressed in elf costumes to add to the spirit of the holiday, will be on call to assist you and wrap your holiday gifts and stocking stuffers.
With a whimsical smirk, Murray offers one final piece of advice for stress-free shopping, “don’t wait until the last minute to do your holiday shopping, but IF you do, we will be open overnight on December 23rd and are ready to get you through the holiday season.”

Kilwins is conveniently located at 130 Deer Park Ave. in Babylon (631-482-8551) and at 74 East Main Street in Patchogue (631-627-8584).  Visit and
