It is December and the Christmas parades are in full swing. We see people coming and going everyday planning for these parades. Mixed in with the Christmas parade shoppers is the Mardi Gras crowd gearing up for the season. This year has flown by and Mardi Gras 2010 is staring us in the face. We service patrons all over the United States via our website, www.toomeys-mardigras.com. In addition to this, our surrounding area sees more and more people getting involved in the Mardi Gras tradition every year. The growth is so much so that every year we open a seasonal store in Baldwin County that services our customers on the Eastern Shore. We have even made some permanent expansions in our Mobile store.
Every year there are more and more people that get the Mardi Gras bug. Whether they have just come of age to show interest just moved to the area or just finally attended a parade the foot traffic in the store grows. In answer to this we have expanded our Mobile store to give our customers more room to shop and also to make room for all of the great new things that we have added this year. When you visit our store for Mardi Gras 2010 you will see that we have taken the mask wall and made into a mask store. We will even be adding a register this year to help everyone get in and out as quickly as possible. Even though to a lot of people, part of the fun is standing in line and “talking shop” with others in line.
Also, to help accommodate our customers we open a seasonal store in Baldwin county every year. This saves a lot of people a long drive and lets more people see all the great items we have who might not get a chance otherwise. There are a lot of factors that go into deciding where our seasonal store will be. Once we do find the ideal store for that year it is an exciting announcement as we are able to answer a lot of customers who have been eagerly waiting to see where Toomey’s will land on the Eastern Shore each year. This year you will find the Toomey’s Seasonal Store on HWY 98 in the old Rex/Appliance Direct building beside NFL Lumber in Daphne.
All in all we do as much as we can to help bring Mardi Gras to as many people as possible every year. If you have suggestions or requests just let us know. We are always happy to look at any way to improve our services.
