After six amazing years of being open in our small town (we can't believe it's been that long!), we are excited to share that on January 9, 2023, we will be starting on a remodel project in The Mercantile restaurant, bakery, and store!

After the past several years of welcoming guests, we are replacing all the floors in our retail store AND doing a complete remodel of our restaurant and bakery spaces! We've learned so many things about what our customers want and need, and we are excited to finally pull the trigger and transform the spaces!

Don't worry, once it's all done, The Merc will still be the comfortable, welcoming place to sit and eat with friends and family, and we'll still have the same mouthwatering, luscious food you've grown to love. You'll just get to enjoy spiffy new finishes and a whole new layout that we're so excited about!

Here's what to expect in the coming days and weeks:

Monday, January 9

On Monday, January 9, The Merc restaurant and bakery will be closed for one day only. This will allow both teams to move everything to our temporary Merc space four doors down!

Don't worry, The Merc retail store, The Pioneer Woman Collection store, P-Town Pizza, and Charlie's Sweet Shop will all be open on January 9, so you'll have plenty of places to eat, shop, and have fun.

Tuesday, January 10

Starting on the 10th, The Merc restaurant and The Merc bakery will open in its temporary (but still awesome!) digs down the block. Our awesome Merc chefs, bakers, and hospitality staff will surprise and delight you with all the familiar Merc menu favorites as if nothing ever happened. It's going to be a fun adventure.

*Please note our Winter Hours (January and February only) for The Merc restaurant:

Monday - Thursday: 7:00 am - 3:00 pm

Friday & Saturday: 7:00 am - 8:00 pm

Sunday: Closed as normal!

Also starting on January 10, The Merc retail store will be operating out of its original space AND The Pioneer Woman Collection store three doors down so that the store's floors can be replaced. (The entire floor replacement should only take about three weeks, and it's gonna be awesome!) Plenty of fun shopping to do, and if you've shopped at The Merc before, you might enjoy hunting for new treasures in both spaces.

Late January

The Merc retail store will be back to normal and full of new, amazing merchandise by the third or fourth week in January!

Mid-to-Late February

By mid to late February, our brand new gorgeous upstairs bakery will reopen! It's going to be a beautiful, comfortable haven for enjoying coffee, treats, and visiting with friends, and we are over the moon for you to see it.

Mid-to-Late April

Last but not least, our Mercantile restaurant renovation should be complete by the middle of April and we'll be back in our original spot ready to enjoy the best spring and summer ever! Expect beautiful booths, top-notch tables, colorful finishes, and a glass-enclosed private dining room...and the same delicious Mercantile menu (with a few new surprises!)

While all of the fun updates are going on, don't forget to enjoy a pizza over at P-Town, and big ice cream cones at Charlie's!

We love you all and we thank you for your patience as we plow through these exciting changes. Even though there'll be a few hiccups here and there, have no doubt that the incredible staff at The Mercantile will be here to show you the best time throughout the whole process!

Can't wait to see ya, both now and after the big reveal!
