Louisiana flea market expands with new U-Haul service

Paris Flea Market

The new Paris Flea Market sign includes a truck rental banner.

Johnny and Karen Jones, owners of Paris Flea Market in Kentwood, La., recently added U-Haul truck and trailer rentals to the flea market. The market opened in March of this year, as reported by FleaMarketZone. According to a press release, the market will benefit from providing the new service:

“Paris Flea Market can now offer its customers a variety of moving equipment and supplies designed specifically for moving household furnishings, including moving vans, open trailers, closed trailers, furniture pads, appliance dollies, furniture dollies, tow dollies and auto transports. Paris Flea Market also will offer sales items to protect their customers’ belongings and make moving easier, such as heavy-duty boxes, which are made of up to 90 percent recycled content and are available in a variety of sizes.”

“We wanted to offer the much-needed service to our local area and to generate more revenue for our company,” the Joneses said. On the market Facebook page, Johnny Jones wrote enthusiastically, “Starting Tomorrow Friday 5-6-2011 Paris Flea Market will be an authorized U-Haul Dealer, come on by, we can handle all of your moving needs: from Trucks & Trailers, both local and oneway, pads, dolllies, Boxes ETC. COME SEE.”

“U-Haul is proud to be partnering with a quality independent business such as Paris Flea Market,” writes Patrick Allen, president, U-Haul Company of Southern Louisiana. “Johnny and Karen are a great example of the type of successful business relationship U-Haul has established.”
