Well the time has come! Snap 2 It Snap Jewelry is coming to the Marion Centre Mall in Marion, OH as a permanent merchant location. We are excited yet a bit frightened at the idea of this event. Our plate is full as we make preparations and try to get the word out. We trust this will be a successful venture. How did it all get started? Simple....we cared.
The first day we walked into Marion Centre Mall after having moved to Marion from Little Rock, AR, we were shocked. Many of the stores were closed and traffic was very light. We thought the whole place was closed at first. We stopped an older couple who were there walking around the mall perimeter. My question was simple, "What happened?" The couple smiled gingerly and explained that the economy of the past 10 years hurt the mall retailers and the community where it made its home. Many stores closed and left.
As my wife and I continued to walk around observing the features of the mall, we liked what we saw as far as the enviroment. A large community social area with televisions, seating, and pool tables adorned the center area of the mall. A still active movie theatre, available conference rooms, and a children's activity area were among other features. Some stores were still open and after visiting with shop owners, I was given a sense that hope was still there.
Later, after our initial visit, Carla and I became aquainted with the mall management team. We were invited to a weekend event to display our Snap 2 It Snap Jewelry. The price was right, the timing was before Christmas, and the location in the mall was perfect. We were located right in front of a major retailer and several smaller merchants. Sales were great that weekend. We decided to go back for the weekend before Christmas. Again, a smashing weekend. One thing we always realized in Marion was that our product was well received and we did well with sales.
After visiting many times with the mall staff, we were convinced that our timing for getting in as a merchant was perfect. The mall staff has been working feverishly to get committments from merchants to move in. Our presence would be a big help too. We got excited about being on a ground level revitaliztion of this community shopping center. So, after much debate and GREAT FAITH, we are making the step. Here we come....WE ARE IN IT TO WIN!
FYI: if you would like to help, see our website homepage for a link to our Go Fund Me page. We are looking for financial assistnace with our venture.

The coming of the new year brings in a lot of different events and products to our world. Snap jewelry is not excluded from these happenings. Our suppliers are busy churning out new snap designs to bring renewed life to your snap jewelry bracelets, necklaces, earrings, and rings. As we enter into the new year, Snap 2 It Snap Jewelry by Maverick Mart USA will also be on the forefront of providing the latest in snap buttons and snap base products. Look in the coming weeks for new additions on our website.
As we display our products at different events throughout our region, we are often asked to bring in a particular desing of snap button. We are always willing to meet our customers' desires. If it is available, we will bring it in. We can even special order. So don't be afraid to mention it as a comment to us in our blog, facebook page, or in person. We are happy to find what you are looking for.
We also want to bring a short note to our customers concerning the first of the year as it relates to receiving new stock. Our suppliers shut down their manufacturing facilities during the month of February. Any orders that we place with them must be before or after that time period. We make consideration in our ordering schedule for this event. Therefore, our normal shipments do not suffer as much. This causes weeks of delays in any special orders that are placed. To avoid such lengths of time in receiving goods, we encourage all our customers that are seeking special orders from us to concentrate on getting those to use before mid-January.
