LOCAL LOVE SINCE 2011
It takes a special town to raise enough money, $100 at a time, to open a community-owned store. Saranac Lake is that kind of place.
What a gem of a store! Love the idea that it's owned by locals. Keep up the good work.
I love Saranac Lake, but, unfortunately, I live in Texas. I can at least have my own small portion of Saranac Lake from things I can purchase online.
I forgot a package, but it arrived before I finished unpacking from our visit. That kind of unquestioning friendliness is part of why Saranac Lake will always be home.
Great place with an amazing variety of needed and desired items!

I just had an excellent remote shopping experience at The Village Mercantile. I needed a few items for our current circumstances and remembered they have a decent selection of household goods. Terry (at the store) and I communicated via email and phone. They had what I needed and she even sent a photo of my choices...Pleasant, easy, socially distanced.
