Our Favorite Candles to Warm Up Your Home

    Will you be doing the showcasing again next year? Unfortunately I never saw the email 🙁 Too bad to because not only do I use 100% Soy, but part of my sales goes back into my company; this allows me to take soap and candle gift bags every month to the Disney Infusion Center for the patients, caregivers and nurses. My mom gets treatment there so I like to give back.

    I noticed that you feature different businesses on your blog that use your products. How can my business be featured as well? We love the jars that we have purchased from Fillmore and our customers do as well.

      Hello Bradley and Vanessa, It is likely that we will do something similar again since we had such a great response from our customers. However, because we don’t want to be sending out unsolicited emails, we have only been sending to those who have signed up to receive our emails. (Even though you use your email for the login, we keep that protected and use it only for sending package tracking, receipts, or in case our customer service team needs to contact you about an order.) Since social media is becoming more unreliable, being on the email list is the best way to ensure that you don’t miss out on anything big. We’ve even had a couple of “email list only” giveaways. The preference center allows you to choose which kind of email you receive so that they are relevant to your business or interests. I hope this helps and that 2016 is a great year for both of you!

    River Road Candleworks would love to be included in the next business profile blog entry. I believe I am on the mailing list, but I must have missed that particular e-mail
