SCENTED candle brand, Yankee Candle, has opened a new store at a County Durham shopping park.

The shop opened at Dalton Park Outlet shopping destination, near Murton, on Friday, October 1 and bosses at the retail centre say it is already proving a hit with shoppers.

Stocking its hugely popular range of glass jar candles, homeware fragrance, accessories and gifts, the brand has also created four new jobs at the centre.

“The store has had such an incredible opening weekend and the feedback from our guests has been brilliant.

"We’re excited to see what the future holds for Yankee Candle at Dalton Park.”

In celebration of Yankee Candle becoming Dalton Park’s latest store opening, customers will have the opportunity to purchase selected products with 70 per cent off, while stocks last, in the coming weeks.

In addition to Yankee Candle products, the store also stocks WoodWick and Millefiori branded products at outlet prices.

The new store is located near M&S Outlet at the Pollinator Park entrance.
