This is not an ordinary candle store. It is everything rolled up into one: candle store, general store, Christmas shop, candy store and more. It was truly an experience. My husband and daughter were able to dip candles to make something special for me. It was so much fun.

Let me just say I usually do not like to shop in these kind of stores but we were told this place is very large and is a must see. The ladies all wanted to shop so we went along. I was surprised by how large and how much there is to do here while they shopped. I was fascinated... More

One of two super Yankee Candle stores. This place was amazing. Not only could you find all the wonderful candles you are familiar with, you can dip your own. Make wax hands or fashion your own candle. The onsite Christmas store has the most personable and gracious Santa I have had the pleasure to meet. As the Traveling Firefighter, I... More

We had a few minutes and wanted to check out the Yankee Candle Company.....well the few minutes turned into over an hour and could have easily gone longer! This place is full of wonderful and unique items and gifts. Also, it has great interactive areas for the children. And the Christmas "park" inside is a must. Will definitely be going... More

There is a kitchen section with gadgets, dishes, food , pots, pans : an accessory section with clothes , shoes, purses, a kids toy section and... More

OMG!! Usually go to the one at the mall, this place here was HUGE. Awesome and so much to see and wish that I won the lottery to buy all I wanted. Hand-made candles and wax-hands the kids enjoyed and made for each other ( our son and his girlfriend). Recommend a visit, I know we will next time we... More

I was shocked when I visited Yankee Candle Co. First, it's the entire building. Candles are basically in the right wing. The center is given over to chocolates, live entertainment, holiday themes, special sale items attractively displayed on wagons, etc. To the left, you have a wonderful gift shop, with Vera Bradley, Diane Sharp, Pandora, things that hang, chime, ring,...

This is a great place to visit even as a man that doesn't love the smell of all those candles. We took the boys in and had them dip their hands so we have a memory forever. That is a lot of fun they loved it and the guys helping were really good to them. There is so much more... More

My family and I had no idea what we were about to experience. The Yankee Candle Village was incredible to visit. We visited at Christmas time, and it was incredible. The decorations, Santa, and selection of gifts other than candles was truly a great experience to see. Definitely a must if your looking for something festive to see and to... More
