The store was beautiful and I would have enjoyed looking around more but Santa was there and the store was packed with people in line and very excited children. There is a play area and while I think having Santa there was nice for the children I feel like he could have been situated in a better location and maybe... More

Visiting Yankee Candle is always fun. The Candle part is the typical large Yankee Candle store, but what makes this location special is the huge variety of other small shops. There are many options, from food and cooking items, to jewelry and clothing, to Vera Bradley and items for the yard. There are lots of Christmas items like Dept 56,... More

This store is Awesome. From every candle you could want in every scent. Gifts for very one on your list. The Fudge and Peanut shops were great. The Christmas room was so cool, the setting was night time, and then it started to snow. The Black Friday special was out of this world. The Yankee Store was the best decorated... More

Love this place, something for everyone. I love the villages and gargoyles and the candle selection is so big it is hard to choose your favorite. There is light food and drink inside. Grab a carriage and be prepared for lots of company.

Not just a candle store - plan to spend plenty of time just walking around! Yes, it's overwhelming so just start in one end & Leto on moving. The honor all your coupons plus the deal are great!

This is a huge store with lots of gift ideas, not just candles. This time of year there were lots of Christmas gifts. We saw a winter village, theme ornaments, candy store, fudge, Household items, popcorn, and even a live Santa. Fun place for families

What an awesome place to visit. Every aspect of the store was great from the customer service to the activities, snack bar and things to wish for and buy. Kinda pricey, but you get what you pay for. Very helpful staff. 9 and 5 year old boy and girl had a great time.

The gentleman who played santa was the best I've ever seen! There is definitely something for everyone including interactive candle dipping and even making a wax mold of your hand ..... More

This place deceives you from the outside. Once you enter you will be amazed by the beautiful setting of housewares, candles, shops, activities (candle making), sights and sounds! There is just too much to mention so just go there and see for yourself how delightful it really is. The Christmas Shop is truly magical for young and old alike!!! It... More
