Busy Bee Too Ribbon Cutting Ceremony


Marceline, MO – The public is invited to join the Marceline Chamber of Commerce and the City of Marceline in celebrating the opening of Busy Bee Too with a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony on Saturday, November 29 at 4:00 pm, located at 114 N. Main Street USA.


If you have enjoyed visiting Busy Bee Floral & Gifts in Downtown Marceline, you will fall in love with the recently opened Busy Bee Too.  As you step inside the newly renovated store you’ll be amazed by its nostalgic and charming ambiance.  Busy Bee Too officially opened its doors on November 11, 2014, showcasing a Holiday Theme.  The store also sells a wide variety of gifts including organic natural products.


The store owners, Mary Ann Schmitt with her daughter, Julia, and the entire family have been a motivated team for the past 7 years at the Busy Bee store across the street from the new store.  Busy Bee underwent a series of renovations and expansions during that time, evolving into a unique gift shop and floral boutique.  With business booming, the team made the decision to expand into the newly renovated store.


When asked why they decided to expand to the new Busy Bee Too location, Mary Ann explained, “We believe that our customers are an extended part of our family.  We wanted to present a store to them that enhanced their shopping experience.  Our family sincerely hopes that Busy Bee Too will be an asset to our town.”


A new storefront sign and enhanced façade are scheduled for completion in the spring of 2015.

Busy Bee Too's Holiday Showcase set to be featured at the Ribbon Cutting Ceremony.


“The Busy Bee Family invites you to drive through downtown Marceline to enjoy our Christmas windows.”  Added Mary Ann.  “We hope you remember the reason for the Season and wish you a very Merry Christmas. 


The official ribbon cutting ceremony of Busy Bee Too will be held Peanut night, November 29, at 4:00 P.M.  Light refreshments will be provided.  Busy Bee Too is located at 114 N. Main St. USA in Marceline, next to City Hall and across the street from Busy Bee Florist & Gifts.  Store hours for Busy Bee Too are Tuesday through Friday from 10:00 A.M. to 5:00 P.M. and Saturday from 9:00 A.M. till noon.  Phone contact (660) 376-2888.
