Wienrich and Boettcher is an exclusive haven, situated on Zephire Street, for chocolate lovers. The prices are steep so you had better be prepared to mortgage something dear to you, such as a surplus grandparent, just to be able to afford the merest taste. (A small selection of merchandise is displayed in the window and if you have to ask the price you can not afford it.) There is extra drainage just outside the window to accommodate the otherwise unsightly puddles of drool.

Although it is not named in Reaper Man, this seems to be the shop where Death bought Dark Enchantments for Miss Flitworth. His granddaughter Susan Sto Helit is a fan of their chocolates as well. Except, of course, for the nougat. (Although technically these do not count as chocolates, see Chocolate.)

Their chocolates also played their part in defeating the Auditors in Thief of Time

"Wienrich" means "rich Vienna" and a "Böttcher" is a "cooper" or barrel maker but whether Pratchett was thinking of these in creating a name for his exclusive choclatiers is unknown.
