The Mercantile is WAY more than a retail store and it’s in the heart of Old Town Rock Hill. They offer clothing, accessories, beauty, furniture, home décor, garden, and more. You can get something delicious from the coffee shop and deli (that goes by the amazing name Jackass Cafe) or catch one of an endless number of events held weekly.
But it’s still more than that. It’s a positive force in the community. It’s intentionally affecting change in Rock Hill because Brittany Kelly, along with her husband Michael are driving it.
Brittany has a penchant for design and is a self-proclaimed serial entrepreneur. She views her store as a place for people to find joy and inspiration and is doing a damn fine job of reinforcing that. She talks to us about what that means and where Rock Hill is in the progress she and so many hope to achieve. We also get to hear about g-g-g-ghosts!
Brittany grew up in Rock Hill, but relocated to Cumming, Georgia, graduating from Forsyth Central High School before getting her LMBT from the Southeastern School of Neuromuscular and Massage Therapy. She has owned and operated several local businesses before opening The Mercantile in April of 2018.
