Another one bites the dust: Illuminations
Fancy candle store Illuminations is the latest to close down their retail stores "in response to the unprecedented economic challenges." Looks like it doesn't matter if they burn 100 hours and smell like Peppermint Eucalyptus, aromatherapy candles are the first to get cut in shoppers' budgets during a recession. I've always felt sorta guilty buying scented candles. Like instead of wax, I can visualize dollar bills burning. So, this closure is no surprise. On the plus side, look out for some killer sales at their brick and mortar locations. Vanilla Mint...yum! I mean, sad. Very sad.
