This Boise candle store is giving Bath & Body Works a run for its money
I guess it’s important that your house smells great all year round. Candles are a great way to do this. But let’s face it, the real candle light seasons are fall and winter. Getting warm under the blanket and curling up with a good book is infinitely better when you light a delicious candle that fills the room with scents like pumpkin, hazelnut or peppermint. For most people, the choice is Bath & Body Works for their candle needs.
I mean, they really throw basic marketing behind their fall collections, and we eat it! After all, Sweet Pumpkin-Pumpkin-Pecan Waffles are highly sought after flavors. But there’s a Boise-based business with two stores worth checking out instead. When you have the opportunity to shop local, you absolutely should, and this place is lit … literally. Lit & Co. Candles is the locally run candle store you should know.
Everything about them is local. They even have a facility here in Boise where they physically produce every item you can find in their retail stores. Right now, the collection that catches my nose is their pine scented collection:
-Cedar + Evergreen
-Cinnamon + Spruce
Right now, on their website, you can see that “Falliday” is here, which means that both fall and holiday scents are available. Bath & Body Works only has a Christmas preview available so they’re late if you ask me. Lit & Co. is also hiring seasonal workers right now and promising a generous discount on merchandise, so maybe it’s time to find a part-time job.
25 stores that are no longer at Boise Towne Square Mall
13 stores that were once called Parkcenter Mall Home
The Parkcenter Mall opened in the same year as the Boise Towne Square Mall, in 1988. Unfortunately, it didn’t have the same stamina. After most stores abandoned the location on Parkcenter Blvd, it was eventually converted into the current Sage International School. These were 13 stores that used to call the old mall.
