Bowes Signature Candles Store Under Construction at Disney Springs in Old Sosa Family Cigar Co. Location

Bowes Signature Candles will take over the storefront previously occupied by Sosa Family Cigar Co. in Disney Springs. The cigar store closed permanently earlier this year.

So far, the storefront doesn’t look drastically different from how it looked when Sosa Family Cigar Co. closed, except that the old store’s sign has been removed. Sosa Family Cigar Co. was a long-standing staple of Disney Springs, having first had a location on Pleasure Island.

We did notice white footprints on the pavement outside the construction walls, suggesting that crew members were painting out of view.

The sign on the construction wall says Bowes Signature Candles will open in fall 2023. The building’s façade may not change drastically given the oncoming opening timeframe.

Bowes Signature Candles will be between Salt & Straw and Pelé Soccer on the West Side of Disney Springs. Summer House on the Lake is also under construction directly across from the new candle shop.

Bowes Signature Candles is a local Orlando company that previously operated out of Marketplace Co-Op on the other side of Disney Springs. Bowes Signature Candles says the following about their inspiration:

Bowes Signature Candles grew out of a love of the art of candle-making. It’s relaxing and therapeutic. It’s a way to express creativity. It’s a way to celebrate the beauty of nature. And it’s a way to share a little love and happiness with others.

But it’s also a way to connect people with emotions and memories. It turns out, the realest source of inspiration for us has been our customers. They tell us about particular smells they remember from their childhood or a special occasion. They suggest scents to us and tell us about the ones they’ve always hoped to find.

And the ability to deliver for them—to see the looks on their faces when a scent transports them somewhere special—is the most rewarding part of what we do.
