Candles, wax candles and more in’s $20 billion sale

Amazon is buying more than 20 million candle-making equipment, including nearly 300,000 disposable wax candles.

The sale, which also includes thousands of high-end candles, is part of Amazon’s $10 billion bid for the U.S. home appliance market.

The deal will be finalized in about two weeks and is valued at $20.2 billion, according to people familiar with the matter.

Amazon has been selling its own candles in the past, but its commitment to the home appliance business comes as the company is in the midst of a $3 billion effort to revamp its e-commerce site.
