It’s reported this week that the massive U.S. retailer Yankee Candle is seeking out sites in Winnipeg malls for new stores.
This is part of their Canadian strategy of opening 50 Canadian stores coast to coast within five years.
Yankee Candle, seller of scented candles operates in all 50 states in the United States.
It’s unlikely that Polo Park will see this store in 2014 given the huge expansion of stores they are adding this fall including H&M which had a huge opening this week.
Look to see the stores possibly after this Christmas season and sometime in 2015 year to open.
