Yankee Candle Company Reviews & Ratings
There is no candle store in the world like this one. Great selection that changes with the seasons. It literally snows in the store and the Christmas displays are utterly amazing. This is a great store to visit anytime of the year. The staff is always warm, welcoming and friendly.
It's a fun little place to browse, has a toy store and a Christmas area year round in back and they decorate it all for Christmas each year but some of the decor stays all year. Great for a photo shoot. There is a fudge shop, ice cream shop and a few other areas inside. It's interesting to stop over if you are visiting the area.
A very nice place to visit. A wonderland in a way. All ages will like this place. One of the managers is a fine young man and Priscilla provided outstanding customer on one of my visits. I'm local and shop here. Dreamcicle fudge was delicious!
A huge store, filled with candles and fragrance goodness. No doubt you will find something for you, a friend, anyone. I personally love the fragrance spheres!
This store has become one of my favorite stops in Williamsburg. So much to see and do. Always a great selection of candles obviously but also gift items. They also have delicious popcorn and fudge if you have a second to sit down.
