April 2020 PCS Newsletter

The Pez Collectors Store hopes this newsletter finds you well, safe and healthy! We are open for business even as we observe all Stay at Home and Social Distancing practices. New pez are brightening our outlook in these troubling times and there have been several new releases this past month, with more on the way!

Marilyn Monroe Pez are in stock now! This exclusive dispenser of the legendary American actress, model and singer comes on a card featuring her iconic billowing white dress. Remember the days when Pez never produced dispensers of ‘real’ people? Of course, that came to an end when the Orange County Chopper Pez Gift Tins were produced in 2006, followed by Elvis in 2007, the Presidents beginning in 2011, etc. Marilyn makes a wonderful addition!

As we all are aware, the pandemic Covid-19 has created havoc worldwide and many events have been postponed or canceled. The 2020 Sweets and Snacks expo has been canceled, so our opportunity to preview upcoming releases is now more limited. We will be able to share information about upcoming releases and will share images provided to us by Pez Candy 30 days prior to the first scheduled release date. Trust me when I say there are a lot of exciting new pez on the way!

The Northeast Pez Convention has also been canceled for this year, and the Pez Visitors Center and Funko Everett and Hollywood retail stores are closed as our country and people worldwide attempt to limit the spread of the virus. On a more positive note, convention hosts have announced that they will have exclusive dispensers available for their conventions. Each convention host was able to help design the card and choose the color of the emoji head and specify the printing on the stem, so each dispenser will be unique and will be on a unique card! We won't spoil the surprise for anyone, but the dispensers we have seen look really great - think crystal and glitter and different colors!

In a time when we’re all being asked to practice social distancing, we don’t need to be socially isolated! On Saturday, April 11 from 2:00pm - 8:00 pm EDT, PEZ collectors will have an opportunity to attend the first ever solely virtual PEZ Convention.
