Elmira (WENY) - A new shop on West water street in Elmira is looking to spark something more than their homemade candles. Simply Candles by Katie will be opening up in a few weeks and the owners plan to put a unique spin on candle making. Everything in the store from unity candles for weddings, to hand carved designs will be custom made in the shop. They work with charities like march of dimes and the local SPCA. The owner of the shop Katie Brown says she's excited to be one of the first businesses in the the Harold and Rosenbaums buildings, and hopes to spark the economy in Downtown Elmira.

     “It's a bit exciting it's a bit pressurizing because of course we're new and i'm not from here but to be apart of something this big is exciting and hopefully we bring a lot to the table.”

     The owners are currently looking to hire more full time workers before they open the store in early October.
