You’ll Find Unique Gift Items And Artisan Ice Cream At The Southern Illinois Mercantile Company
The Southern Illinois Mercantile Company is not your average store. It was started by two friends, Tanya and Ellen, who had a shared dream of opening a place where people could meet up with friends, stop in for some ice cream, and hang out in a welcoming atmosphere. The “Merc,” as it’s known, is a place where people want to spend time, shop for hand-crafted items made by local artists, and maybe stay for a game of checkers. The owners welcome you to their unique retail establishment that is so much more than a store!
