Issaquah turns a little sweeter Friday, as See’s Candies opens a shop at the Issaquah Commons.

Folks can stop by for free samples, See’s Happy Habit hats and Gourmet Lollypops for children of all ages during the opening celebration. The kickoff also includes displays of See’s historic delivery vehicles and drag racing cars. The shop is open from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Friday.

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 candy shop replaces a teriyaki restaurant in the space.

See’s Candies also opened a shop at Southcenter Square in Tukwila on Thursday.

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.
