I'm a quilter. I always go to mardens when I'm visiting home and today was a good trip. Beautiful, high quality, name brand cotton fabrics from $2.99 - $4.99 a yard. The gals who do the cutting are fun and helpful, as was the cashier.

Always lots to choose from - some bargains, other things not so much. I think they try to keep prices down and offer a good variety of items! I shop there once or twice a month to see what's new. LOVE the fabric!!!

A store with a little bit of everything.... lots to choose from. A little cluttered at times, but it is a surplus/discount store. Choose from flooring, furniture, chocolate, soda, clothes, shoes, pretzels, shovels, holiday stuff and everything in between... if you are in the area........More
