NOW OPEN !!!
in Glenbrook Square !!!

The remodel of our new location is complete and we have reopened.
Scroll down to get a look back at our remodel progress.
To better serve our customers The Wick Works has relocated to a new location in Glenbrook Square between Rogers and Hollands jeweler and Justice clothing store - down the Macy's wing from the main mall intersection.  We don't have our store sign yet so just follow your nose to a store that smells great and looks like the photo below.

Our new store front

We are VERY excited about this location as we are moving to a regional mega-shopping center.  Glenbrook Square hosts over 12 million visitor per year from northeast Indiana, northwest Ohio and southern Michigan.  We will still have the local, personalized service our customer have come to know and love, but we will be able to share our experience and premium customER-scented products with many more people.
We have been absolutely amazed at the support we have received from our loyal customers while The Wick Works has been going through this relocation.  We have even had a couple of people call us and ask to buy gift cards and single-scent candles while we have been closed.  That is the epitome of trust and loyalty! Of course we said "yes" and made arrangements to get the products to them.
 Check out the remodel progress below.
