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!

This is one of their large flagship stores. One could spend hours here. Gifts galore and special prices on just about everything. Santa is there all year long and it even snows inside their Christmas Village.

Yes, I know it's Yankee Candle and that for some reason, people like to pay through the teeth for this stuff, but I can't understand why. Having said that, this location is a very nice place to visit even if you're not interested in buying. The Christmas section alone made our 8 year old daughter happy as can be. The... More

Wow, we couldn't believe how big this place is. It will take you a few minutes to go through the entire store. If you have kids, take time to either make a hand candle which takes about 20 minutes or make a homemade candle.
