This was not my first visit here to the Yankee Candle (and) Company. This store has an extensive selection of Candles and even the older hard to find scents! There are other stores under the same roof of Yankee Candles co. There is a Christmas store that is unique because it snows year round in there! A delicious popcorn stand,... More

My wife is a big Yankee Candle fan, so we stop here probably 5 or 6 times a year. My 9 year old daughter loves going there, too, to take in the 365 days a year of Christmas that this place offers. It is really neat inside and I never really tire of it either. The Christmas section is setup... More

This was a lot of fun to visit, especially for a fan of Yankee Candle like me. It's huge, with a lot of small shops within and a pretty fountain in the center. There's a section where you can make your own candle, which seemed like fun. There's also a wonderful Christmas shop. I'm usually a grinch about celebrating Christmas... More

The great selection of Yankee Candles is just one area of the vast store. There is candy and popcorn to buy. But the area I like best is the rooms with Christmas decorations. Save a couple hours to shop.

This was the first time my wife and I visited the Yankee Candle shops upon a recent trip to Williamsburg VA. What a wonderful experience! It is somewhat like an indoor mall, with a variety of shops accessible from a central atrium which has a beautiful fountain. There is a candle making workshop, Christmas shop complete with a Santa working... More

Take the kids here, it's huge and a little interactive and fun. Love smelling all the scents and kids enjoyed the big clock tower. Really enjoyed seeing the professional pumpkin carver and the kids got to hear a story from Santa. Enjoyed a yummy caramel apple too.

We always have a great time shopping here. We buy birthday gifts, holiday gifts and many candle items for our home. They really freshen up the place. Each time we come up here they have many great specials.

Before I walked in, I was expecting a stereotypical Yankee Candle Store! Absolutely not! It is so much more. There are places to make your own candles (probably very popular for birthday parties for kids), Popcornopolis (yum!!!), a Christmas area and a whole strew of side corner shops with a variety of themes (i.e. garden, cooking, et cetera) and I...

This Yankee Candle store is the most amazing place on earth. Really. You just walk in and feel happy. It's as big as three or more stores put together, and inside there are different rooms: two kids rooms, a Christmas room, a general store area, a candle emporium, another general store area that sells vera bradley and pandora bracelet items,...
