Goodbye for now!

Goodbye for now!

Dear All,

From 22nd January, The Super Duper Candle Company will be closed... but we are planning to be back later in 2021!

To explain why, we'd first like to give you some background as to who we are. Many of you may have had the delight of emailing me, my name is Elliot! I manage the business day-to-day alongside my girlfriend Alicia and my mum Janet. Alicia is responsible for our Marketing & Finance and Janet is the highly qualified candle gift wrapper! We started the business in January 2020 as a small entrepreneurial venture as I am studying A Level Business & Computer Science and wanted to put academic theory into practice. We were completely astonished and overwhelmed by the success and how well our sales grew month by month! We are passionate about our business and have loved the positive feedback from all of you during 2020. It’s filled us with joy reading all your comments on Trustpilot and helped us make our business even better.

Alicia and I are Sixth Form students at Carre's Grammar School, Sleaford which means that our A-Level exams are just around the corner in July 2021, so we have therefore decided to close the business until then so that we can focus on our education. It’s not been easy to coordinate our studies and the rapidly expanding business during the pandemic, so whilst it’s been a difficult decision to suspend the business, it’s best all round at this time. Our sales have been absolutely fantastic and have kept us super busy and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts for all your support as we have grown and developed along this wonderful journey. We have loved every minute of it!

As a final thank you, we'll be discounting everything from now until our closure on 22nd January - we've chosen this date as it is exactly one year from the day we started. The discount is automatically applied in the cart.

If you have any feedback or comments, we'd love to hear from you in the comment section below. Alternatively, it would mean the world to us if you could leave us a Trustpilot Review.

We hope you all had a wonderful festive season and we wish you all the very best for 2021 and hope you will shop with us again!

Elliot, Alicia & Janet

Be the first to know when we return!

    Hi Elliott, I have placed 2 orders with so far & have been delighted.
    I would suggest that if you A levels have been delayed, that you carry on with this enterprise, I’m confident that you will be very successful!!
    Very best wishes


  • Jan Best

    Wow. What a story! The very best of luck to you and your sister. I’m sure you’ll blow A levels out of the park. Thinking of Mum too, never an easy time😂

  • Rachel

    Good luck Elliot and Alicia! See you soon Super Duper Candle Company and happy holidays Janet the chief packaging and wrapping operative!!! I’d better get purchasing 1 year’s worth of candles!!!

    So impressed with the service you’ve provided, and even more so now to hear your story. Good luck with your exams and I hope you’ll be back soon.

    I was so saddened to hear you guys are closing for a bit but when I saw the reason why I was completely blown away. Having just recently discovered you, you’ve become a firm favourite of mine and your customer service was incredible. I had no idea you hadn’t been doing this professionally for years. You guys are gonna be a great addition to the small business scene when you’ve finished your studies. Can’t wait to have you back in action! Best of luck with your exams, hope it all goes well! 🙌✨👏
