The Old Merc News: Countdown to Opening!

From Greg & Gerold at the Merc

We are entering our final month in our current location. Sounds so sudden when you put it to paper, but we’ve been working a long time building a more appropriate space for a full service grocery store. We’re excited and certainly hope that you’re excited as well. Our overarching goal has always been to invest in our community through improving services while maintaining our rural character.

Gerold and I will certainly miss the charm of the Old Merc and all of the memories we collected. Many of you have memories as well, even prior to our owning the store. Because the Merc has continually been a store during the lifetime of the building, we know that the name Crouch Merc is attached to this structure and should not move with us.

The new store will be called Garden Valley Market. It’s appropriate to start fresh and build upon the growth of the Merc. Another item that will be transitioning is our Preferred Card program. The current program will end, but a discount and rewards program will begin based on earned useage. More details will follow in future messages.

We’re on facebook now (Garden Valley Market GV Idaho). Join us as a friend. We’ll be posting photos, specials, news, etc. For some of you, FB might be more convenient than email. Our new website is in development and when up and running, you’ll have the option of printing coupons, printing our flyers, utilizing our shopping cart feature and much more.

As of our opening (targeting Memorial Day Weekend), we do not have a pharmacist yet, nor will the gas station be completed. We will continue ahead with both, but they won’t be available when we first open.

We will keep you posted of our progress via email and facebook. As I’ve mentioned in earlier messages, we will close for a few days in order to move all equipment and remaining product to the new space. That date will be announced as soon as we have a firm time frame.

In the meantime, Spring Cleaning is in the air.

You’ll be surprised what you’ll find at the Merc to help you with
this annual rite of Spring.
