Worth the stop.

I don't even like candles, and I enjoyed this place. Home decor, Christmas shop, things for kids, etc. Nice place, hold on to your wallets, easy to get get carried away.

Everything you can imagine. Lots of neat shops. Activities for the kids including filling a candy jar, wax candles, make your own candle jar, wax hands, and even a... More

Prices are high, but the variety and attractive displays really make wandering around a lot of fun. You can easily spend an hour or two and still not see everything. The Christmas section is open all year, and it 'snows' every four minutes. It is a great place to find unusual gifts.

Had any afternoon of cool weather and stopped by to get in out of the cold. Found the displays nice and the place was clean. The Grandson's enjoy the Christmas part where it snowed about every few minutes.

We stopped here because ewe really had nothing to do on a rainy day. We left with 4 candles, two boxes of votives, a Christmas ornament, 4 bags of popcorn, 3 lollipops and bat 2 pounds of jelly beans. Great place to stop and look around, there's something for everyone!

I found a great deal on votive candles, $ 1 each. Had an indepth conversation with another person regarding use of liquid... More

This is a great store. The name is Yankee Candle and it does sell Yankee Candles but it also sells so much more. It has jewelry, handbags, kitchen wear, children's toys, a Christmas shop and home décor. The store offers events throughout the year. Santa not only comes at Christmas, he comes during the year to work in his workshop.... More

Every season or holiday in one store. It was amazing! And to create our own candles was even better. I just wish they offered more scents to create with
