See’s Candies is reopening to customers in Los Angeles with its new “Click→ Pick→Go!” service — a contact-free pickup service that allows See’s Candies customers to safely and conveniently enjoy the classic chocolates and sweets.
The launch follows a temporary closing of select stores in March. In its 99-year history See’s Candies has only had one other interruption, during WWII due to rationing. Each step taken in reopening stores is to ensure customers have safe and easy access, many of which are made using the same recipe that Mary See used almost 100 years ago.
This new service is completed in three steps and supports safe social distancing for employees and guests. Even See’s Candies famous candy sample has been thoughtfully reimagined, and is included in with each order as an individually wrapped treat. Customers can call the store to confirm arrival, and orders will be placed in the contact-free area outside of store once the shop doors have closed. To find the nearest store and its hours of business by zip code, visit www.pickup.sees.com
