Atlantic City (August 21, 2013) – Already a favorite among Las Vegas vacationers, sweet shop ‘LICK’ is expanding its original style of playful candy worship in the Northeast Coast casino-resort market. Marshall Retail Group (MRG) announces the opening of LICK inside the Resorts Casino in Atlantic City. It is the second location to open in the city, after the opening of a shop inside the Tropicana Atlantic City in December 2012.
LICK provides a lively and appetizing shopping experience through its unique and entertaining selection of candies, chocolates, and novelty gifts all displayed in a vibrant backdrop. With a special tribute to ‘lickable’ treats, LICK sells a variety of custom lollipops and hard candies. The shop also offers exclusive chocolate bars in traditional and exotic flavors, chewy candies, licorice, sours and gummies, just to name a few. Shoppers can fill bags with a sampling of bulk candies from the shop’s dispensers and pay by weight, or choose from individually packaged items. Helpful and friendly LICK associates are available to make recommendations based on shopper’s tastes.
The shop also hosts an interactive photobooth where shoppers can pose for wacky or provocative photos of their candy-dyed tongues and email pictures to themselves or a friend for laughs. While LICK can be enjoyed by kids and adults and all personalities, the boutique is also a great stop for bachelorette parties or ladies nights, offering a variety of adult themed candies and sexy gifts in the back of the shop.
