Yankee Candle Opens its First Store In Metro Manila
The world's best loved candles are now here in Manila! Yankee Candle opens its first store at Venice Grand Canal Mall on November 12 2016.
On Christmas 1969 in Massachusetts USA, A 16-year-old Mike Kittredge created a candle for his Mom’s Christmas gift, using canning wax, red crayons, kitchen string, and a milk carton. He begins to design and handcraft candles in his family's kitchen. With his father's help, he opens a small retail shop. That number would grow to hundreds of retail stores and over 35,000 authorized retailers worldwide. Yankee Candle has been a staple brand for home decor enthusiasts, gift givers, weddings, family get togethers, and virtually every social occasion where gifts and memories are shared and treasured. In the Philippines, Yankee Candle is exclusively distributed by Perfect Serenity Bliss Inc.
The opening event was graced by Philippine business executives, celebrities, beauty queens, diplomats, and bloggers who were all excited to see this true American icon establish its first footing in the Philippines. Bestsellers on the opening day were the Large Classic Jars, Car Scent Vent Clips, Shade and Tray, and 2 Wick Tumblers.
