The Candles are Coming! The Candles are Coming!
A Yankee Candle Company opened on Kent Road last week.
A new Yankee Candle Company store is lighting up the Stow Community Center shopping plaza after the doors officially opened Feb. 10.
There was a ribbon cutting ceremony for the store with Mayor Sara Drew last Friday.
The new store has six employees and Assistant Manager Michelle Basista told the Stow Sentry, "We are excited to be in Stow."
Mike Weddle, the city's economic development director, said Yankee Candle is a "great addition to our economic base."
Overall, Yankee Candle operates 530 company-owned retail stores throughout the United States and Canada.
The store in Stow is open Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. and on Sunday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.
