A NEW candle business has launched saying it can offer something 'unique' .

Cera Candle Store was formed two months ago by ex-Partylite colleagues Michael Batstone and Jeff Wall. It is a sister company to Cera Consulting that started in 2015 when the directors decided they wanted to add home fragrance products and supplies to their services.

Jeff who worked at Partylite for 15 years said they restarted the business in one aspect and created it in another.

He said: “In 2015 when we were working at Partylite, 180 of us got made redundant.

“I then set up my own business from the back of people coming in to buy the equipment and so started my own consulting business and eventually moved into the manufacturing business.

“Michael got made redundant from his previous job last October and we teamed up together on the back of our knowledge together from Partylite and with our other member from Partylite Mike Williams, our Manufacturing Lead, we have started a company up where we make and sell the candle supplies.

"The business is unique and different to other candle businesses out there, that we offer candle products, supplies and services."

The shop which opened two weeks ago on Furness Retail Park at uni 8D is open Monday to Friday from 9am till 5pm with extra hours to be added on the run up to Christmas.

They sell a range of items including: wax melts, candles, fragrance oils, electric diffusers and wax warmers plus more which are all hand made on site.
