There’s always lots of random stuff for sale at Marden’s, the bargain- hunter’s paradise—and it’s never the same from one week to the next.

Students love Marden’s—the self-professed “surplus and salvage” store with everything from groceries to furniture, fabric to shampoo. Because its stock comes from stores that have gone out of business, been flooded, had fires, and more, the merchandise is eclectic and the prices are discounted.

Senior Biology Teaching Associate Lindsey Colby found an electric cell counter for fifteen dollars, and Colby students Molly Bennett ’11 and Theo Papademetriou ’11 both recently stumbled on new Converse sneakers in the store’s extensive shoe section.
Marden’s Waterville store is just a mile from campus. Since the founder reportedly fancied himself more treasure hunter than salesman, you never know what you might come home with.
