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

Never realized that Yankee Candles had so many candles! Really great shop to frequent especially at Christmas. We went on a quick get away and were pleasantly surprised! Christmas is great for kids as they have Santa and a room that snows! Our baby enjoyed both as much as we did! Be sure to check their clearance rack. We scored... More

This festive shop is filled with the sights and the sounds of Christmas during this holiday time of year. The smells are too many to many to count. You will not only find endless candle choices, but festive activities for the children, a general store, candy, chocolates, popcorn, caramel apples, drinks, gifts, kitchen gadgets, Christmas ornaments in winter wonderful land...

If you're familiar with Yankee Candle, this is just more to love. On Richmond Road just passed the main retail mall and area, its still only minutes out. Not only is there all the good candles and home goods you normally find in a YC store but they have a nice snack shop and a Man Cave with ESPN, a... More

I normally don't care for shopping with my wife at outlets. The Yankee Candle Outlet is an exception. I spent over two hours there looking at interesting things. It is not just candles but ornaments, toys, kitchen items, and other interesting items. One could do all their holiday or year round gift shopping in this one building. There are interesting...

If you have not been here, what are you waiting for? If you like candles, holidays, dipping your own candles, knick, knacks, fudge, and just a good wholesome family outing, you need to visit. My college aged children love coming here, go figure. Did I tell you it's between Olive Garden and Carrabas? Be sure to stop in any time... More

This is first time I have been to a Yankee Candle that felt like I was in a mall. They had so much to shop for from candles, of course, to kitchen goods, Christmas decorations, fudge, candy and popcorn, to collectibles. Plan to spend some time in this store unless you know what you are going in for specifically. Even... More
