This is not just a candle store it is so much more. Inside beautifully decorated made me think of Disney. However the one thing that blew me away was the Christmas Shoppe. Santa was being there with his book of nice and naughty children. Even put my name in the book it was one of the most magical things I've... More

What can I say. From the first step inside there is so much to look at, smell, hear, see. My boys (16 & 12) still love to go in & just walk around. We haven't spent much money there, but we have a great time all the same. Their favorite store is Christmas! The smells from the candle shop however... More

This is NOT your typical Yankee Candle store. It's a flagship store and has toys, clothes, jewelry, kitchen supplies, food, candle making, fantastic fudge, Santa, a whole Christmas shop and on and on. DO NOT MISS THIS~

This is more than just a candle store. It is an array of specialty shops to fit everyone's interests. On our second trip here, we were excited to introduce my husband to the snow in the Christmas shop and the animatronic characters in the main hall. My 23-year old daughter had to sit and watch the entire show. Didn't buy... More

Went here with my family after reading these reviews. We loved the Christmas store, so beautiful. The kids liked the toy store and candy store. There were so many cute shops, so much more than just candles! We had such a great time walking around. They even have ice cream! Overall we were very impressed and would definitely return if...

This place really surprised me, and in a good way. It's far more then just a candle store. They have an area to make your own candles, a candy area, a cool section just for Christmas decorations, and a toy store in it. It really has something here for just about everyone and I was pleasantly surprised. Definitely a fun... More

I've been to many yankee candle shops, but this store was one of a kind. It's more like a mall with little stores within the mall. Loved all the beat activities, wax hand making, candle dipping, plus the candy area was pretty cool. I've decided that this the the part time job I want when I retire. Very special place

This store was so much more than we expected. My husband came in with us but wasn't planning too and he was amazed. The Christmas selection is amazing! There was so much to do. The kids loved everything. They dipped their own ornaments, they made their own candle. Our son was to little for the wax hands but that looked... More

So, mommy wanted some tarts so the kids said ok it's hot and we'll go. They had so much fun. They made candles (2 for $20) and filled a candy jar ($12) and much more. It even snows in the Christmas room!!! They had an absolute blast and the air condition was awesome.
