The Georgia Mercantile Company is being required to move out of its space on Main Street in downtown Senoia, Georgia and needs your financial assistance to update a new location suitable for retail business. Unfortunately, being located in a prime spot on Main Street is risky business when others are interested in it and your lease is up for renewal. After almost two years in this location, we will close the doors on December 24th.

And as the old saying goes - when one door closes, another opens...and we will open to a bigger and better future. The new location will allow us to grow and do what was the original intention of The Georgia Mercantile Company. That intent is to provide a venue for products made in Georgia. We specialize in gourmet food items, soaps, lotions, candles, art, books, and other great gifts made by Georgia artists, authors, crafters, and chefs.

In addition, we are like an old, country store with your favorite old fashioned sodas, candies, and toys. And, we have been one of the must-see shops in Senoia for visitors from around the world seeking local merchandise and tourist information for AMC's hit television show, The Walking Dead. We have been a local source for custom designed shirts, wares, postcards, locations maps, and comics for not only The Walking Dead, but other hit films including Fried Green Tomatoes, Lawless, and many others.

As you can imagine, having to relocate suddenly to a new location is a huge financial burden unexpectedly. And as it is Senoia (a.k.a., Woodbury), Georgia where new businesses are abundant, there are no spaces available on Main Street and certainly not any that will allow The Georgia Mercantile Company to grow. A new location at the edge of town is a promising site for The Georgia Mercantile Company. However, it needs a lot of work...

As stated, we will close our Main Street location on December 24, 2013. I plan to re-open in the new location early Spring. During the break, we will work on the new location to update it and bring it up to code. We are asking for your assistance with these expenses. It's easier to ask for $10, $25, $100 from a crowd than it is to ask for more from a few. Please help us if you can and know that you are helping a small business continue to flourish while it offers a place for many to share their creations and goods.

We THANK YOU for your support and will honor our donors whole-heartedly when we make it to our new location by making it our mission to PAY-IT-FORWARD!
