A new merchant hub opened on December 12, a woman owned business aiming to support the community and local vendors in an all-in-one marketplace.

Established in 2023 by Melissa Tucker, Kelley Graham (Project 36 Artistry), and Megan Duggar (StoryShack Books), Cedar and Co. Mercantile has swiftly become a vibrant retail hub celebrated for its commitment to quality and community. This thriving marketplace, located at the heart of the community, is not just a store but a haven for both locals and visitors. Boasting a diverse array of handcrafted artisan goods and locally sourced produce, it caters to varied tastes. The founders’ shared dedication to championing small businesses and local talent is evident in the thoughtfully curated selection. Beyond a retail space, Cedar and Co. Mercantile serves as a community hub, fostering connections and radiating creativity. The store is a testament to the founders’ fervor for promoting unique products from small businesses, making it a cherished destination for those who appreciate authenticity and craftsmanship.

The business also conducts live sales via Facebook, providing clear guidelines on their Facebook page. Invoices are sent and due within 24 hours, with non-payment leading to cancellation and the item(s) going to the next claimant. Failure to pay results in blocking from future sales. The first comment on the hosts’ screen is prioritized, emphasizing the potential variation due to Facebook’s comment filtering. Shipping costs are outlined, with items under 1 pound incurring a $6 fee and those over 1 pound requiring a flat rate box fee of $9.

The store hours are Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. and on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.. For more information contact them by email at cedarcomerchantile304@gmail.com or visit their website at cedarandcomercantile.com. They are located at 304 S Cedar Ave in South Pittsburg.
