Judyth Piazza interviews Kelly Tigges, The Market, Algona, Iowa

By Judyth Piazza CEO (Editor)

Whether you`re shopping for a gift for someone special or picking up a little something for yourself, chances are, the perfect item is waiting for you at The Market in downtown, Algona.  The Market, established in 2008, is a large brick and mortar store with a quaint cozy feel. 

When asked what we sell at The Market I have to chuckle a bit.  I tell folks we sell baby goods, toys,  gourmet foods and wine, women`s accessories, home furnishings and accessories, specialty gifts and always a bit of the unexpected.   But make no mistake, we do not dibble dabble, everything we sell is well represented.  We stand behind our lines. 

Customer service at The Market is second to none.  We are here to make shopping fun again.  I love it when I see the stressed out shopper who walked through the door, leave with a sense of relief that they, with our help, found the perfect gift.  And of course it is our pleasure to package it beautifully for you.   

We pride ourselves on focusing on the needs of our shoppers.  The attention you receive is the same if you are spending ten dollars or a thousand.  We strive to have something for everyone.  We want you to have a shopping experience that is positive and painless.

Besides on the spot shopping, The Market also offers in-home furniture and decorating consultation as well.  Anything we can do to make someone`s day a little easier brings us great satisfaction.

I love to shop and I love working with people, so owning The Market is the perfect job for me.  I want everyone to feel the joy of gift buying or decorating their home regardless of their budget.  We are constantly re-inventing to fit the needs of our shoppers.  We love customer product referrals and work hard to keep things new and exciting.

 As I always say, `Be Happy Shop The Market. `
