MT Bare Cave Celebrates 4th Anniversary In New Location
December 28, 2022 | View PDF
It’s been a busy year for Marci Cundiff and her business MT Bare Cave, and there are no plans for slowing down.
The business originally got its start in December 2018 selling giftware out of the Louis Charles Building. Over the course of the next three years, the business would outgrow its first home, and Cundiff knew that expansion was necessary if she planned on keeping the doors open.
“We hit a wall,” Cundiff explains of their move to 113 E Main St., Sidney. “We only had enough space to carry the products that were our regular sellers and we had no room to expand. We looked for a new location for over a year, and when JZ’s Fashion moved and this location became available, we jumped at it.”
Cundiff, along with her husband and children, moved the entire business in just three days. She opened the west side of the building the last week in July and spent the next month readying the east side of the building.
“We gave the space a face-lift; we repainted, put a clear coat on the floors and did a little tweaking,” she said of the renovations.
The additional space has allowed MT Bare Cave to expand the products they carry for top selling companies such as Black Rifle Coffee and BruMate, and incorporate brand new products such as cell phone accessories. But some of the most sought-out items continue to be baby and kids’ clothes and accessories. Much of the east side of the store is geared towards kids; bottles, pacifiers, baby bathtubs, diaper bags, Copper Pearl and Little Sleepies clothing, and even Kindred Bravely maternity clothing for the soon-to-be moms.
“Our continued goal is to carry items that are needed in the community. The kids’ side was one area I really wanted to expand because there were so many products that people just couldn’t get anywhere else in town.”
Another new and exciting addition to the downtown location is Marci Sondeno’s Lucky Design and Event Planning. The former Lucky Buckle owner rents space on the east side of MT Bare Cave and can assist with all your event planning needs.
“We’ve had a huge up-tick of giftware sales since the move and our Black Friday sales more than doubled since last year,” Cundiff noted, crediting their Main Street location.
Additionally, Lucky Design and Event Planning will have kiosks of Christmas and New Year’s party planning decor and make-and-take florals available, a fun and personalized project for families.
MT Bare Cave’s hours are Monday-Friday 10 a.m.-5:30 p.m., Saturdays 10 a.m.-4 p.m., and Sundays 1-4 p.m.
“We really appreciate the continued support from the community. We have long-time loyal customers and I’ve seen our customer base expand since we’ve been at the new location,” Cundiff said. “I just really want to thank the customers and the community because we can’t flourish without them.”
