Both stores will open November 8. The Northlake store will close December 26, the day after Christmas, while the SouthPark store will remain open until April 4, through Valentine's Day and Easter.

See's, headquartered in California, was founded in 1921. In addition to its retail outlets, the company also does a large amount of mail-order business.

"A tradition in the West, See’s has consistently maintained the timeless virtues of quality, caring and friendly service. Made in America, using no added preservatives and only the freshest, highest quality ingredients available, each piece of delicious See’s candy is sure to delight this holiday season," See's said, in a statement.

Also, Microsoft's temporary holiday store is opening Friday, Oct. 26, at SouthPark. The store will sell a "curated collection of the coolest Microsoft products," according to its website. The store will be located on the mall's lower level, Microsoft says, across from the Abercrombie & Fitch store.

Microsoft will likely be emphasizing its new Tablet, Surface, as well as the Windows Phone and Xbox 360.
