This Week: December 22nd through December 28th

Food_Hall_Wreath_2Merry Christmas to all of you who celebrate and your families!  We hope you have a week filled with family, love, and great food.  And no need to be stressed these last few days, we’re here to help you!
 
Here’s what you need to know about Marcel’s this week:
  • We will be open:
    • Sunday Noon to 5
    • Monday and Tuesday 9:30 am – 8 pm
    • Wednesday (Christmas Eve) 9:30 am – 4 pm
    • Closed on Thursday
    • Back to regular hours of 10 am – 6 pm on Friday.
  • We are gift wrappers extraordinaire!  Let us take that task off your hands – we might need you to come back and pick it up a bit later (usually not more than 30 minutes) but it’s worth the wait!
  • Marcel’s Gift Back program continues through December 24th.  For every $100 you spend (pre-tax, gift cards excluded) since last Thursday through 12/24, you will get a $20 gift card (available for pick up on December 26th) that will be good through the end of January.  It’s as simple as that!
  • We have no scheduled classes this week (because we are loaded with families doing private events — think about that for your family for next year!) but the kitchen gets back into action the day after New Year’s.  More on that next week. 
Merry Christmas from all of us at Marcel’s!
