It is - read https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/chandler again.
I wouldn't trust everything you read there though (a chandler is not
primarily "A person who makes or sells candles"). The main English
English use of "chandler" is in the sense of "ship's chandler" - someone
who sells all sorts of stuff that might be useful to someone on a boat.
The wider sense ("someone who sells all sorts of stuff") is used, but
more rarely. There's an example in
(which exists and is http://www.bunners.co.uk/ ), for example. That's in
OSM as http://www.openstreetmap.org/node/489847395 (and "shop=hardware"
there is correct, I think).
Although it's in the etymology, I've never heard of a modern
candle-maker being described as a chandler.
