Background

Margie’s Country Store has become a landmark of the Historic District.
U.S. business statistics report that individuals &/or partners attempt to start up a business on average 8 times before they are successful. Marketing, advertising, location, expenses, suppliers, customers, customer care, the business plan, insurance, products, pricing, location (location, location, location), the market surounding, the economy as a whole, and frankly much more than we can’t fit in here, all have to come together for a business to be successful. And to remain successful, it’s just not what the company does on the inside, the supply of quality products and services plus location, it’s also up to the whims of public interest, i.e. the demand, which anyone affected by the tourism can attest to.

Anyone familier with Main Street, Madison Indiana, can surely site several startups which eventually, and some times after not very long, entered and then subsequently exited the market. Margie’s Country Store has sustained 50 years in the Madison market. Very few shops can claim that.

Bravo Margie’s, Bravo!
