Bigger is Better at The MarketplaceApril 17th, 2010 by Submitted
The Marketplace, located at 249 Hwy 425 North in Monticello is celebrating their expansion to over 200 booth spaces with a huge two day sale. Friday, April 16th and Saturday, April 17th the Bigger is Better Sale will take place with FREE refreshments, door prizes and sales throughout the store.
What is The Marketplace, you ask? It’s a unique multi-vendor mall filled with treasures. The Marketplace has everything from Bath and Body products to new mattresses; new clothing including the popular Columbia brand to area rugs and new furniture; antiques and collectibles; to home décor and sheet sets. You name it…The Marketplace has it.
Gene Launius, owner of The Marketplace, started this multi-vendor business last September opening up 77 booths. The booths completely filled up within a few months so work quickly began to open up more of the building for additional spaces.
The operation is simple. You rent your space, tag your items with their price and booth number then display your items to sell. The Marketplace has their own staff to work on behalf of each vendor. They take care of everything from assisting customers to ringing up purchases. Of course, The Marketplace also has its own set of rules and regulations as to what they allow and what they do not allow and it is what each vendor puts in to it.
Some vendors go all out in creating their own unique “shop-like” areas even decorating for each season as they come. What started out as a way for individuals to sell a few things they no longer needed has quickly grown to numerous individual businesses catering to a variety of interests.
The Marketplace offers more than 200 booths providing an ever-changing selection to satisfy everyone’s taste and budget. Hours for The Marketplace are: Monday-Friday 10am-6pm, Saturday 9am-6pm and Sunday 1pm-5pm. There are several booth sizes available to accommodate everyone. For more information, call 870-723-4988.
