Four thieves escaped with more than £900 worth of Yankee candles from Malmesbury Garden Centre in Wiltshire.
Staff chased the thieves and police later issued CCTV pictures of four people they want to speak to, which have been posted on more than 300 people's Facebook sites.
Garden centre security expert GCS (GB) managing director Jeremy Davies said: "These thieves are still at large and will no doubt be targeting other garden centres and Yankee Candle stockists."He said a solution to glass jar candle theft called Jarloc, launched in October 2014, is now available.
The standalone, reusable security device is specifically designed to protect glass jar candles from theft.
Jarloc fits inside the top of the jar, locks into place, preventing access to the wick. The lid fits on top and the candle can be displayed as normal.
Ruxley Manor Garden Centre director James Evans said: "Without a doubt, Jarloc has had a significant reduction in our Yankee Candle stock loss."
