I grew up in a small town north of Boise, where we went shopping at the "Merc" (mercantile) for clothes, kitchen items, bath items, and furniture, and you could order items from the Montgomery Ward catalog and pick them up at the Merc. In other small towns, I remember the mercantile also sold farm and ranch equipment. This mercantile sells espresso. Times have definitely changed, and the Merc in my hometown is long gone. This "Dry Creek Mercantile" is in the Hidden Springs community in the Boise Foothills.
