See's Candy is a Fannie May clone (some like it better but the vanilla buttercreams just don't match up and that's my fav) based here in California. With the changes at Fannie May, they saw an opening and have just opened up their first store outside the west...in Downers Grove on Ogden betw Fairview and Cass (near Trader Joe's). Immediate plans call for another store in the N burbs and one on Michigan Avenue.
Well worth a stop by to do a comparison to FM. I hear they had lines out the door for their grand opening.
