This is a nice place to go if you want to just have a leisurely break in the air conditioning. They have tons of odd ball candles including bacon and beer! They have some decent sales and lots to do with kids. The wax hand dipping is really neat.

Not your average candle store! With themed stores-within-the-store, you could probably even keep a toddler amused in this place!

This is such a great place to go and enjoy all of the many unique stores within Yankee Candle Company, I just wish that the employees were more friendly and helpful. My children and I were there on Wednesday the 27th and not a single employee was in the general store, candy shop, the toy shop, or the Christmas shop... More

Great, kids went right to candy bins. Husband and I had a wax mold of ours hands made. Other stores in the building are nice to look in but not my style or what I shop for.

Skip the outlets and visit this place. Even if you could care less about candles, this place is an experience. Where else do you get a snowstorm every 4 minutes. Check it out!

I could have spent several more hours in this Flagship store- I think I was in there 3 hours as it was. There is an area to make your own candle or dip your own candle - lots of fun for families. I like the way the store is set up, it looks like several stores inside of one big... More

The prices can be really pricey but the candles are really worth it I... More

Awesome store that had something for the entire family. Never experienced a store like this which made it that much more enjoyable. We entered just to check it out but ended up being in the store for almost 2 hours. Candle making for the kids was super fun! Do not miss this place if you are in the area!
