"Harry & David has long been a part of America's holiday gift-giving tradition and we are excited to make our extraordinary products even more accessible to customers through our seasonal pop-up store initiative," said Steve Lightman, Harry & David president. "Our team looks forward to welcoming shoppers at all of our retail locations and assisting them in selecting the perfect gourmet food gift."
