Mercantile Center

All of us at Mercantile Center wish that everyone is enjoying the fall foliage and keeping warm as we head towards the final stretches of 2019!

We had an awesome October this year! Earlier this week, Mercantile Center hosted our Annual Halloween event for our tenants, featuring the first ever Pumpkin Pageant contest. Here's a quick recap:

Tenant Halloween Event!

A few hundred in attendance enjoyed hot and cold cider, cookies, donuts, Pumpkin Pageant, and our costume & 'guess the candy corn' contests! So many creative and fun costumes roamed the lobby thanks to all who participated!

Check out more of the thrills below!

National Buy Nothing Day

It's the anti-Black Friday, the day after Thanksgiving (this year November 29):

When stores open at 4am to give you “the lowest deals ever” for all your holiday shopping. Instead of buying into the hype, decide to sleep in, curl up with a book and warm hot chocolate, dig into the leftovers, and buy nothing. Not even a pack of gum or a gallon of gas.

National Adoption Month

In an effort to recruit more families for preteens (youth aged 8-12 years old), this month is aimed at raising awareness to the adoption of children and youth from foster care. The campaign is supported by partnerships of the Ad Council, AdoptUSKids, the Children’s Bureau, and the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services. You can find more information at

National Novel Writing Month

Always wanted to write a novel? Do it. And do it during the month of November. Add your name at and commit to writing one 50,000-word novel from scratch.

Please Be Mindful...

We thank you for continuing to be considerate of our exterior "No Smoking" signs and Building-wide policy.

Remember, November is...


We hope you and your family enjoy a safe and happy Thanksgiving!
