On Monday, the iconic New York City wonderland will open a pop-up shop at 42nd Street and 6th Avenue. As a result, New Yorkers don’t have too far to go to satisfy that sweet tooth.
Located across from Bryant Park at 1095 Avenue of the Americas, the 7,000 square foot store will transport city dwellers to a modern day candy land for the holiday season. The new spot will be open for seven weeks.
“When customers walk through the doors I want them to feel like a kid again,” said Dylan Lauren, CEO and Founder of Dylan’s Candy Bar. “Just like our Flagship on 60th Street and Third Avenue, the pop-up store will be filled floor to ceiling with candy, and the innovative store design will bring candy to life melting the hearts of customers of all ages.”
Once inside, head to the center of the shop to witness a life-size gingerbread house decorated with lollipops, gumdrops and candy canes. Serving as a backdrop for holiday photos, after a photo opportunity, customers are urged to participate in decorating the world’s largest candy Christmas tree.
With over 7,000 candies available in its store, for the first time customers will be able to enjoy handcrafted cupcakes from Sprinkles Cupcakes at the pop-up store. Eight flavors will be available including red velvet, chocolate marshmallow and vanilla and holiday favorites including chocolate peppermint and eggnog spice.
Additionally, specialty items that merge fashion, art, and pop-culture with candy as well as American classics, rare nostalgic favorites and imported sweets from around the world will be available for everyone on your shopping list.
