Large complex that had other small stores other than just Yankee Candle. The Christmas store was enjoyable and had many choices. The Yankee Candle clearance section was not much of a discount which was disappointing. The interior center of the complex has a large fountain with cafe tables and a clock that has an enjoyable show to watch. I would... More

Not your ordinary candle shop! This is the 'soup to nuts' version of everything and anything! Vera Bradley, Pandora, Yankee Candles and accessories, food and kitchen tools, samples of dips, kids activities (make a wax hand, a candle or dip a few) and more. This is an event! Plenty of parking and easy to find.

The store was very big with many different items other than candles. The kids loved making their own candles, making molds of their hands with wax, and dipping candles in colored wax. It was a great way to keep them occupied while my wife shopped. Very busy store but plenty of staff to handle the crowds.

We arrived at opening and spent two hours here. There are all kinds of candles (of course), but also candy, popcorn, home decor and many more gift ideas. Plus a center clock tower to delight kids of all ages! Santa is already there for pics too!

We had no idea what to expect. After years of visiting Williamsburg we never stopped here. Trust me there are no deals...just a boat load of Yankee candles and everything else you could imagine.

My son LOVED the Christmas store and the mouse/clock display that comes to life every hour/half hour ( I forget!) The sales are good and there's something for everyone. The fudge and popcorn or delicious!!

What a great place to go on a rainy day! I had a house full of grandkids all various ages, and we decided that may be a good place to go! There were workshops for all ages. Everyone made their own candles, and Ernie was a patient helpful employee who guided them along! The decorations were wonderful!

This was our first time Yankee Candle Company. We visited this store on 'Black Friday.' The crowd was not bad at all. The employees were extra helpful in the main candle sales room. The employees that ran the 'visit Santa section' were helpful and kind too. Our whole family enjoyed exploring the store and its many fun sections. We would... More

Santa here is amazing, kind and looks so great. My infant loved him and he was so gentle and sweet with her. The photographers were a little aggressive with the bell ringing, etc for such a young child but Santa was great. The pictures also came out amazing!

There is no need to come in here to shop, it's a wonderful experience! I especially love their Christmas area in the back where it really snows! Even if I go in just to walk around and take in the scents, I still find that I will buy something. They have such a large variety of candles that you can... More
