After work I went across the street to the See's Candy Holiday store. Like the Spirit stores for Halloween, the See's Candy Holiday stores are temporary, seasonal stores. They open beginning in November and remain open until Christmas Eve. And like the Spirit stores, the See's stores temporarily take over some abandoned retail space, with a banner hanging over the storefront, as seen in the photo above. This one is in a building abandoned by a carpet store called MMM Carpets. The sign remains on the storefront, and is covered by black plastic. Upon entering the candy store, I was greeted by a worker and treated to free candy samples, including some pieces of peppermint candy and some almond candy covered with chocolate. I loved the almond ones, but can't remember what they are called! How weird is that? The store had several displays of boxed candies, including a few with Christmas designs.
I've seen these stores in previous years, but don't recall ever going into one until now. I've gone past regular See's candy store sin mall, but have never really gone into one of those.
