The staff told me that this one of only two retail stores they own. It is more of an experience than a store as it has hundreds of square feet and things to do including a Christmas village with Santa in residence. There's ice cream...More

We had a wonderful time shopping here. If you are a Yankee Candle fan, this place is definitely for you. They even have stations set up for the kiddos where they can create their own candles. They have decent prices and even better deals/sales. The...More

A great place to spend a rainy Saturday with a great ice cream and snack shoppe inside. For some heavier types of food, you just have to walk outside in the same strip mall area. Lots to do for kids like candle making, etc. Great...More

I am not a candle person, so, I was not interested in stopping at this store. But after passing it in the car for three days, my curiosity got to me. The parking lot was filled with cars. I thought, this many people buy candles?...More

Yankee Candle is a fun place to shop and to take children. My 8 year old niece loved the snow fall, the magic clock & giving Santa her wish list. It seems there is never enough time to see everything. There are so many rooms...More

Beautiful beautiful store with lots and lots and lots of pretty things to see - fudge, popcorn, etc. there’s an area where the ceiling “snows” on you - that’s my favorite part. Yes pricey but worth a look. There are s couple cooking/kitchen areas too.

I love the Christmas area where it snows every four minutes, kids' books, plush animal section, specialty sections, and any candle you could possibly want. This place is beyond huge in size, quality, and selection. We visit each year before Christmas.

Yes, they should have wheelchairs available. If you enter the middle doors (main entrance) they're usually on the right just past the carts/buggies.

I saw someone pushing their dog in the shopping carts that are provided. No one seemed to have a problem with that! The dog was very well behaved and sat there like a little trooper being pushed around!
