Now Open in the Convention District!

Posted on October 23 2018

We are thrilled to announce that our seventh location is now open in the Convention District in downtown Columbus!  

Located on High Street directly across from the Convention Center and next to the newest location of Mikey’s Late Night Slice, we are honored to call the historic Yankee Trader building home.  Long-time Columbus residents will remember Yankee Trader as the massive store famous for its eclectic assortment of party supplies. The store closed its doors in 2010, and since then has remained empty, waiting for the right tenants to inhabit its special space.    

So what makes this space so unique and worthy of opening a location so close to our Short North store, just a five minute walk up the street?  Aside for the ornate high ceilings, original wood floors, and live edge wood bar, The Candle Lab Convention District also has a bonus space below our retail store.  This Private Event Center is full of character and warmth and is ideal for hosting corporate events, rehearsal dinners, team meetings, and more.

And for those simply looking for a fun afternoon exploring Columbus, this store is in the backyard of the famous Columbus North Market!  We recommend pouring a candle, then heading to the North Market for lunch and/or shopping for provisions like spices, meat and seafood, freshly baked bread, and chocolates. Or make a whole day of it by pouring candles before heading to a Columbus Blue Jackets hockey game, just a short walk away from our store.

For store hours, parking, and other information, visit The Candle Lab - Convention District store page.  Simply stop-in anytime to pour a candle, or click here to plan a candle-pouring party for five or more!
