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

Have been to Williamsburg several times but this is the first time I have been to the shop. Loved it! The place was bigger than I expected. Thought we were just going to find candles but we found so much more. Whenever in the area again, I will definitely check it out again.

Check for coupons before you go. Great selection of candles and gifts. Grand kids loved making their own candles and enjoyed watching the snow shower. The place does get real crowded during the holidays so go early. Staff was extremely helpful. Family and friends do like the presents we give them from there.

It was such a big pretty building that we (I).wanted to check it out. Omg there was a lot of stuff. Toys store, candle stores, sign store and so much more. Yankee Candle had all the fragrances and some discontinued ones. I thought stuff would be cheaper than at stores but that's not the case. It's not an outlet store.... More

Just loved this place! After all the years we have visited, we never went to this store until now. We visited Yankee Candle during the Christmas! Just beautiful, and not just candles! They have all types of ornaments, with the sky above and stars, snow falling, train garden/train that goes around the room, toys, candies/fudge, plush animals, and, of course,... More
