Lovers can pick up some Scotchmallows in time for Valentine’s Day at the See’s Candies under construction in the Issaquah Commons.

The store is expected to open by Feb. 1 near REI in the shopping center along Northwest Gilman Boulevard. The candy shop replaces a teriyaki restaurant in the space.

See’s Candies is known for numerous treats, including the Scotchmallow — marshmallow and caramel enrobed in dark chocolate.

Operators applied for a city building permit at the end of September. Construction started on the store in late November, and city inspectors issued a temporary certificate of occupancy Wednesday.

The chain also has outposts in Bellevue, Redmond and Seattle. See’s Candies — based in South San Francisco — operates more than 200 stores throughout the West and the Midwest.
