For more than forty years, OKC area customers have depended on Mardel for educational materials, Christian books, Bibles, gifts, and much more. The family-owned business is headquartered in Oklahoma, and the Edmond location opened in 1984. “We’re thankful that we can be there for the community of Edmond,” says CEO Jay DePalmo.
Christian Products for Every Need
Mardel was founded in 1981. From their first store in northwest Oklahoma City, they’ve expanded into dozens of locations in several states. This fall they’ll open their fortieth store in Johnson City, Tennessee. The northwest OKC store is also moving to Yukon in the fall.
Mardel specializes in Christian books, Bibles, and Christian and secular educational materials. Bibles alone take up several shelves, with more available online—they stock 1,200 different varieties.
The store also carries a wide range of other products, with the lineup changing based on customers’ needs. Faith-based apparel is very popular now, and you’ll find a huge variety at Mardel, including licensed items featuring Christian artists. Mardel is an excellent source of high-quality gifts, and you can pick up ribbons, cards, and wrappings, too. They offer a full line of resources to support churches and educators.
Connecting with the Community
Mardel is active on social media, and Jay encourages customers to connect with them there. A new Mardel app keeps people informed about sales and events, and you can shop online 24/7.
But some things are still best experienced in person. Local stores frequently host appearances by well-known authors and artists, like a recent event with the band For King and Country at the Edmond location.
“We’re always working on supporting the community by supplying what they need,” says Jay.
