All of us from Mercantile Center's Management team wish you and your families a Happy Holiday season and a Happy New Year!

This past month, we were once again busy here at Mercantile Center. Here's a quick recap:

Habitat for Humanity: Operation Playhouse

Habitat for Humanity MetroWest/Greater Worcester and Dell built three playhouses at the Mercantile Center in November!  Want to take part in Operation Playhouse?  Your team will construct, paint, and accessorize a themed playhouse for a local Veteran or military family and present it to them at the end of your daylong event.  Don’t miss this unique opportunity to take part in a program that benefits local Veteran families.  Visit Habitat's webpage for more information:, or contact for details.

Downtown Worcester Movie Filming of "An Honest Thief"

Throughout November, filming for the upcoming movie "Honest Thief" - starring Liam Neeson and Kate Walsh - staged in various locations around downtown Worcester, including the Wachusett Brew Yard behind the Railers Tavern on Commercial Street.

The first floor lobby of another familiar location, The Worcester Memorial Auditorium, was transformed into a bank lobby for a robbery scene involving Liam Neeson!

"Honest Thief" is an independent action-thriller about a bank robber who tries to turn himself in because he is falling in love with a woman who works at a storage facility where he stashed his stolen goods. Complications ensue when his case is turned over to a corrupt FBI agent. 

A close neighbor to the filming locations, Mercantile Center gladly provided the crew with a room on the first floor of 100 Front Street, as a gathering place for extras and to take breaks!

Toys for Tots!

The U.S. Marines and Massachusetts State Police filmed a Public Service Announcement at Mercantile Center in proud support of Toys for Tots.
