As of 2015, there are Marden’s stores in Biddeford, Brewer, Calais, Ellsworth, and Gray. Marden’s also has stores in Houlton, Lewiston, Lincoln, Madawaska, and Presque Island, all of which are in Maine. Marden’s surplus and salvage stores are also in Rumford, Sanford, Scarborough, and Waterville, all in Maine. The store chain is owned and run by a family, and its inventory comes from places like bankruptcies, insurance losses, store closings, and other similar situations.
Not all stores get the same stock, so the products you can buy may vary depending on where you are. Some of the items from insurance salvage may be broken, but most of Marden’s stock comes directly from manufacturers as product closeouts, models from the previous year, and inventory overstocks. Each store’s stock changes every day, and every week, new products are delivered. All of the items sold by the company come with a money-back guarantee.
Most places sell clothes, flooring, furniture, mattresses, and hardware, among other things. Most stores also carry general goods, fabric, shoes, and seasonal items.
The stores of Marden’s are all open seven days a week. But stores may have different daily hours, which are listed on the company’s website by location along with the store’s phone number. Questions about what products are available at each store should be sent to that store.
