Hope all is well with you and yours! I still Love, Love, Love Mary Jo's!! I recently started 'giving back' by teaching sewing classes at my church. We are planning a trip to Mary Jo's before Thanksgiving. I have been in the store, off and on with visitors, acting as a Tour Guide. It's alot of fun to see their eyes pop when they first see the masses of fabrics. ;0) La Toya Miss Pretty Handbags

ASK MARY JO...
Mary Jo’s Business Philosophy... We were recently asked, How do we keep our prices so low? This is the answer… In 1951 when Mary Jo's Cloth Store first opened, Mary Jo made a promise to keep prices affordable. Her goal was to be able to serve a Grandmother making a dress or quilt for her grandchild or a young Mother who needed to make affordable clothes for her children. Since the beginning Mary Jo has held tightly to this philosophy. Over the years her business has grown, the location has changed and people come from all corners of the globe to shop. "Mary Jo's Cloth Store" has been doing mail order for many years and has now launched an online component that will serve her customers easily and still be very affordable. It is important to Mary Jo that she continues to bring her customers the highest quality fabric at the lowest price. So in answer to the question “How does Mary Jo's Cloth Store keep their prices so low?” Simple, it is because we have a lower profit margin and a high volume. So the more you shop, the more you save!
