AN OPEN LETTER TO OUR VALUED CUSTOMERS
Due to escalating costs, unannounced price increases have become the norm.
We do not take this action arbitrarily, nor do we take it lightly.
We continually strive to deliver the best products at the best prices.
Sometimes the increases come so fast and furious that it's difficult to keep our
on-line catalog up to date. Please call for any pricing that you're unsure of.
We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and we appreciate your understanding.

INTERNET-CURSE OR BLESSING?
MARJON CERAMICS is dedicated to supporting a method of distribution
which supplies both the products and the support that enable the consumer
to be successful with those products. In this fast paced age of
communication and internet usage we all need to evaluate our priorities
when making our buying decisions. What is necessary to make you
successful with your ceramics? Do you want the convenience of having
a store in your ctiy (or state for that matter) that will not only
provide you with product but is a source of expert information?
Your local merchant may also hold classes or seminars that are a
major part of the learning process. At the same time providing you
with a meeting room/classroom that is a place not only to learn but
to enjoy contact with others who enjoy what you enjoy! The fact is, the
storefront where you shop is only there because of you and your visits.
It's easy to surmise that if you don't trade at that store, they may not be
able to meet their overhead and won't be there next time you want to run
over and pick something up!
YOU are the most important part of any business.
All successful business owners know this. Without YOU the independent business
operators and their stores are gone.
All of us at Marjon's appreciate your patronage!
