The warm and welcoming Coleraine store has become a haven for many customers who enjoy the personal and friendly service
Yankee Candle in Coleraine is much more than a candle shop, it’s a friendly and welcoming space for customers and those wishing to just browse.
Karen Carson and Elaine Faulkner love to chat to their customers so much so, they become part of the Coleraine Yankee Candle family.
“We have actually adopted a grandpa, his name is Jim,” explained Elaine who has worked in the Stone Row shop for 20-years. “He lost his wife and came into the shop one day and broke down into tears.
“We gave him a hug and said we are going to adopt you, come in any time you want for a cup of tea.
“A lot of elderly people like to come in, it’s like a wee hub for them because they are lonely and they know we will chat to them.
“We do get a lot of regular customers coming into us and they always tell us you don’t get customer service like this from Amazon or shopping online. We are always here to offer advice if needed and we enjoy spending time with our customers.”
The Coleraine store, just off the Diamond is packed to the brim with candles and gift sets which take the gift of scent to the next level.
Always a thoughtful gift, candle gift sets are ideal for hard-to-shop-for family members or the friend who has everything.
