This Week: February 1st – 7th, 2016

PardonOurDustWe are looking forward to an exciting (albeit chaotic) week here at Marcel‘s as we unfold the biggest merchandise and fixture move that we have done since the store opened.

 Look for a new location for The Market(including the refrigerator),a fresh look for all of our beautiful dishes and serving pieces, a more prominent focus on your favorite bakeware and cookbooks, and an improved fixture for our hanging table linens which will allow for display of twice as many pieces.
 
Along with this, we are doing a little painting, a little electrical work, and a few other things. That means it’s going to be a bit of a zoo in here but there will be lots of finds unearthed so a great time to come in and see what’s going on! We do need a day to ourselves to get this done, soMarcel‘s will be closed on Sunday, February 7th.
 
Marché will be open from noon to 5 to help you with all your Super Bowl needs but make sure to get your Marcel‘s provisions on Saturday!
 
We’re also wrapping up the Indoor Sidewalk Sale and still have some great merch left — pop in today for one last day of terrific deals up to 75% off!
