We will be discussing general first aid, what to do in a medical emergency, what should be in your first aid kits, and more. There will also Questions & Answers with Dr. McClellan.

Mary’s Annual Tent Sale – 2015!

Mary’s Annual Tent sale this year will be held on February 20, 21, and 22nd! Can you believe that Tent Sale is just around the corner? Two weeks away to be exact.

In case you’re not familiar, the Mary’s Tent Sale is the biggest and best sale of the year, where almost everything is deeply discounted for inventory reduction. Ask any of our local customers and they will tell you that the Tent Sale is more of an horse lover’s fair where you can score some great deals on much needed tack, apparel, and more; plus, meet many of the manufacturers. There’s literally hundreds of money saving specials!

We start with an empty tent (of approximately 140 feet in length) in our parking lot and fill it to the brim of excellent goodies just beckoning to go home with you. A great many of our vendors also join in on the fun and bring hordes of freebies and samples to try or are there to answer some of the long pondered questions you may have on any products.

There will be auctions, contests, prizes, and FOOD! Did we mention the food? A local high school soccer team, the Valley Center Hurricanes, come out and help grill some hotdogs for anyone that’s hungry. After all, you’ll need some fuel for all that shopping.

You can also meet Ride Above Disabilities, a non-profit organization providing equestrian activities to children and adults with special needs. Any donations will go to support their Therapeutic Riding Center.

This fun for all lasts for 3 days and each day is a little different. Early Bird Friday and Saturday are the best days for product selection AND the first 500* customers Friday and Saturday get a free Mary’s bucket (*or while supplies last). Super Sunday is a great day to scope out even deeper discounts as we slash some select prices throughout the store!

Our hours during the Tent Sale are 9am to 5pm on Friday and Saturday, and 9am to 4pm on Sunday. Mary’s will be closed the Thursday (Feb 19th) prior to prepare for the sale.

If you can’t make it to Mary’s for the sale, these great deals are available online as well at http://www.marystack.com or you can call Toll Free 1-800-551-MARY(6279) to order. Hope to see you there!

This Week Behind the Scenes at Mary’s

Simone the Shark! Duunnn dunnn...

Simone the Shark! Duunnn dunnn…

This week has been pretty busy and exciting for all our employees! On Wednesday we had an ALL-Store inventory. Some of us were here at the store at the crack of dawn! Luckily, it only took us 6 hours to individually scan and count all the items and products in our nearly 12,000 square foot building. With the help of all our employees and an Inventory Counting company, this year’s inventory was smooth and successful. We were all pretty exhausted after that day, but a large order of Subway sandwiches refueled the lot of us!

Halloween Horse Contest Runner-up: My Hero!

Halloween Horse Contest Runner-up: My Hero!

Not even 2 days later, it’s Halloween! Every Halloween, our employees wear their costumes to work and our customers vote on their favorite to win! The costumes were really amusing; we had a Baseball Player, a Devil, a SuperGirl, a BatGirl, a Shark, a Spa Queen, and a Scarecrow. We don’t know who the winner is yet, but you can help us out by turning in your vote ballot if you visit Mary’s today!

Speaking of costume contests, we also had a Halloween Horse Contest for our fans on Facebook! A lot of people participated, not only with entries, but also with votes. The winner, a very creative Amelia Earhart and her horse as the plane, won by 168 votes! Honorable mention goes to the runner up who had a perfectly timed picture of her super horse, My Hero. Just WOW!

There’s always something interesting going on at Mary’s. Give this blog post a “Like” below if you want to see more “Behind the Scenes” at Mary’s Tack and Feed!
