See’s Candies plans Issaquah shop
January 18, 2011
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 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 Jan. 5.
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.
