The popular 'make-your-own-scent' shop Cleveland Candle Co. is expanding, bringing its candle-making experience and educational classes to Ohio City next week.
The new Ohio City location (2032 West 25th Street) is modeled after the company's existing shops in Mentor and Coventry, which includes a "candle bar” to create custom scents, with guidance from in-house candlemakers. In just an hour or two (depending on size) the custom candle is ready to go home with its creator.
Founded in 2014, the Cleveland Candle Co. started because the owners wanted to bring the art of candle-making back to their community.
“We decided to build a place where people can create their own signature scents, at an affordable cost, using only the best ingredients possible,” said company president David Gin in a press release.
Ninety percent of the oils used at Cleveland Candle Co. come directly from Ohio. Plus, the company uses made in the USA products in their candles, including their 100-percent custom soy wax blend, glass jars and containers.
To kick off the grand opening, Cleveland Candle Co. is giving away free candles to the first 25 people through the doors when they open on Friday, June 29,
at 11 a.m.
Throughout the celebration, customers can take advantage of door buster deals, participate in hourly raffles, and, from noon to 2 p.m., free face painting for the kids.
