Who We Are

At the Tent Chik our main focus is to help you create your special event! We are a husband and wife duo with a lot of energy and creativity. I am a graduate of GVSU with a Bachelor's degree in Business Administration, working full time for a print and mail service bureau called Centron Data Services. Megan works full time as a Licensed Veterinary Technition and is a part time student at GVSU. She is also the brains and imagination behind our business. I simply handle the heavy lifting and also like to think of myself as the public relations man. Customer satisfaction is our top priority and we will do everything we can to try to exceed your expectations. Look around our website and if you have any comments or questions, please feel free to contact us. Check back later for new updates to our website. There’s much more to come!

Why Us?

We can relate! We got married only a couple of years ago ourselves so we understand the financial and mental burden of trying to plan an event. We planned our own wedding and tried to cut costs in every way possible from creating our own invitations to collecting all our own china and flatware. After the wedding we weren't sure what to do with our 350 place settings of dinnerware. We thought; why not rent it? We decided to pool together what money we had saved up plus all of the money from our wedding and we started a rental business in 2013. It went better than expected our first year and we are hoping to continue that well into the future. With little overhead and low operating costs we have been able to save customers a lot of money. Please Contact Us with any questions or if you would like pricing information.

Warm Regards,

Jay & Megan Merkins
