Mercantile to Close


After months of careful consideration, Barb Blystone, owner of the Mercantile, has made the difficult but necessary decision to CLOSE THE STORE by November 15th and turn her time and energy to the increasing needs of her family.

In the meantime, she has filled the store with your favorite items and there are SALES THROUGHOUT THE STORE, so spread the word!

Barb says ‘THANK YOU’ for making these 10 years of business a pleasure and a success, we will deeply miss our store, and especially our special connection with you.
Barb, Sharon & Heather

Note from Kathy: It’s sad to think of the Mercantile/Dancing Rabbit closing their unique and wonderful store. Barb has not tried to market the business, but she says she would be interested in talking to potential buyers. I know this gift shop and clothing store, with jewelry, books, candles, kid’s things, cards, decorative items, etc. will be sadly missed.

    So sad to see Barb go. The Mercantile has always been one of my favorite stores in Ridgefield. Barb and her friendly staff will be missed.
