union square opening spr 2015!

NEW YORK, NY (SEPT. 2014) –
The city where it all began adds a much anticipated downtown location to compliment the original Dylan’s Candy Bar flagship uptown. It marks the sixth free standing location with existing stores in Los Angeles, Miami Beach, East Hampton and Chicago, opening Spring 2015. Dylan’s Candy Bar’s first downtown location in New York will open next Spring in the historic Union Square area. Located within what was once the Andy Warhol Factory building, Dylan’s Candy Bar will continue to infuse pop culture and art into this lifestyle brand. Candy lovers will find what they’ve come to expect from Dylan’s Candy Bar, including an ice cream counter and signature Dylan’s Candy Bar items but this store, unlike the others, will have a downtown vibe with fresh graphics and displays.

“As a native New Yorker, the city continues to inspire me, and when the perfect space opened, we knew it was the right fit,” said Dylan Lauren, Founder and CEO of Dylan’s Candy Bar. “Fans have been urging us to open another location here and I’m so excited to continue to grow the Dylan’s Candy Bar brand and bring the delicious experience to downtown Manhattan.”
