If you take a walk behind the video store, you will see the new building in its beautiful GV setting, against the hills. Greg Simione & Gerold Dennett have become good neighbors, who have enriched our community with better food product availability and good deals on merchandise. Here, they share current news on the store. If you are local and haven't asked for your preferred customer card, do it now.

Construction on the new store continues with the short term goal of closing in the building within the next week or two. This will allow work to continue through the Winter.

Meanwhile at the existing location, there will be a change to our hours of operation, effective Monday, November 1st.

Store hours will be 7:30 am - 9 PM SUNDAY - THURSDAY and 7:30 am - 10 PM FRIDAY – SATURDAY. With School starting earlier in the day, we hope the earlier opening will help you!

One last change that will happen in November is an adjustment to the preferred customer card. Currently, all items except Gas, Tobacco, Lottery Tickets and Newspaper, have the 5% discount applied. The change will be that the following items will be added to that list:

Beer, Wine, Single serve Sodas, Waters, cold Teas, Bags of Chips, energy drinks, ….basically, our Vendor items which have narrower margins that fluctuate frequently.

Grocery, Health and Beauty Items, Produce, Meat, Deli, General merchandise and Breads, will all continue to have the 5% discount apply. This brings us more into line with our original intent, which is to recognize and appreciate our local customer base in choosing the Merc for their grocery needs.

We look forward to November for the store as we bring in items you’ll want and need for Holiday baking, family meals and party occasions.

Thank you for your support.
