Open for Business: MaMa Jean's Natural Market
Monday, May 06, 2013 3:37 AM
Austin Hartley, MaMa Jean’s Natural Market
MaMa Jean’s Natural Market
on April 25 opened MaMa Jean’s Natural Market’s third store in Springfield, the latest in the former Furniture Broker building on East Sunshine Street. Hicks and Farbin purchased the site, 3530 E. Sunshine St., for an undisclosed amount from IDK LLC, which is operated by Furniture Broker manager Kerry Wilson. Three-year employee
was promoted to store manager and manages roughly 50, a combination of new hires and transfers of seasoned staff members, he said. With 15,000 square feet of retail space, the Sunshine store is the largest of the three, but Hartley said each is uniquely designed. He said products are duplicated across the stores, with a continued emphasis on organic foods, household, health and beauty items, and supplements. “During the next couple of months or so, we’ll start looking at new items to bring in,” Hartley added. Hours: 8 a.m.–8 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 10 a.m.–6 p.m. Sunday. Phone: (417) 429-1800. Web:
On April 14, LCS Kleen Aire Business Development Director
launched DealeTin.com, an online bulletin board for deals. McGauley, whose family owns LCS Kleen-Aire, organized the site under Tyler McGauley Holdings LLC and runs it from his Ozark home. A cross between Pinterest and Groupon, consumers and business owners pin deals such as dinner specials from Applebee’s, book discounts from Mardel and clothing sales from J.Crew. “It lets anyone pin a deal from any site, and they can share that with the rest of the community,” said McGauley, who spent two years in research and development and personally invested $15,000 in the venture. A San Francisco-based company that McGauley declined to name cuts his company a check when transactions occur through the site. He said the amount earned ranges between 1 and 20 percent of the purchase. Two active businesses at startup are Mount Vernon-based Red Monkey Foods and a cake toppers company in the United Kingdom, he said. Hours: 24/7. Phone: (417) 496-1055. Web:
