In 2010, Peddlers Square was established as a new flea market in the Mid-Ohio Valley offering benefits to vendors that no other flea market in the area had. Features like cashier service, seven day a week store hours, and vendors not having to be with their booths in order to sell items. This allowed Peddlers Square to establish itself within the surrounding community, attract various vendors from the Mid-Ohio Valley region, and thousands of customers each month.
Shortly after opening, it was obvious to the out of town owners they could not provide the attention the store required. Thus, in mid 2011, the store changed ownership to the Tanner family and Peddlers Square became Peddlers Junction Vendor Mall.
In 2015, the Tanner family decided to incorporate their business. As a result, TPM Incorporated was created as Group Headquarters, with Peddler’s Junction Vendor Mall store concept becoming one of three strategic corporate pillars.
TPM Incorporated has no intention of changing the vendor malls original concept. However, it will continue to develop and improve with its new mission statement, “More than a flea market” and become the best vendor mall in the Mid-Ohio Valley and surrounding area.
OUR VISION AND MISSION
At Peddler’s Junction, we understand the importance of our vendors and customers. Our established Vision and Mission statements ensure the needs of our vendors and customers are fulfilled, allows us to grow, and encourages the community to take part in our ambitions.
Our Vision Statement:
“To be the best Vendor Mall in the Mid-Ohio Valley and surrounding area.”
Being the best doesn’t always mean the largest. With our commitment to our vendors, our employees, and our customers we believe that we can be the best without being the largest. This is because of our unique approach to the way we do business to keep costs down, a friendly family owned environment, and “passing the savings on to our customers” philosophy.
Our Mission Statement:
“More than a Flea Market.”
Peddlers Junction offers a wide variety of services that most markets don’t. It is why we don’t consider ourselves to be a Flea Market – rather a “Vendor Mall”. Some of these services include: 7 days a week operating hours, all inclusive administrative/cashier services, small space (shelf) to large booth space rentals, vendor web portal, special product security services, selling on consignment, the “vendor does not have to be here to make money” approach, advertising services, and live entertainment.
