Chic Mer­can­tile opened in Octo­ber 2022 with the goal of bring­ing a high-end shop­ping expe­ri­ence with small town charm to Mar­i­on. They spe­cial­ize in home décor and gifts, and rent their space out for events. The mer­can­tile seemed hard to envi­sion since it was a board­ed-up gas sta­tion for 15+ years, but own­er Abby Wilkin­son had a clear vision for the space and made her dreams come true.

Wilkin­son said, The best part so far has been giv­ing back to a com­mu­ni­ty that has giv­en so much to us! We love the peo­ple of Mar­i­on and all this city has to offer. Get­ting to spend our days with the peo­ple of Mar­i­on and shar­ing our love for Mar­i­on with the many peo­ple who just pass through’ on State Road 15 is such a blessing.”

As Chic Mer­can­tile approach­es its first anniver­sary, they con­tin­ue to grow. They want to con­tin­ue host­ing bi-month­ly evening class­es, and a mar­ket in Octo­ber to cel­e­brate. They have also been involved in the com­mu­ni­ty through the Unit­ed Way of Grant Coun­ty, Radi­ant Health, and sev­er­al church­es in the area. They are proud to not only donate their time and resources serv­ing, but to encour­age oth­ers to get involved as well. They will have a team dur­ing Unit­ed Way’s Day of Action and more than a hand­ful of donat­ed items for Radi­ant Health’s Crys­tal Ball.

Speak­ing of Chic Mercantile’s future, Wilkin­son added, We plan to con­tin­ue serv­ing this com­mu­ni­ty with high-end and unique prod­ucts. We are hop­ing to con­tin­ue expand­ing our reach through adult and children’s class­es as well as par­tic­i­pat­ing in local fairs and spe­cial events.”

She added, Mar­i­on is an incred­i­ble town that offers hos­pi­tal­i­ty, gen­eros­i­ty, sin­cer­i­ty, and kind­ness when you engage and find your place to serve and expe­ri­ence the place as home — not just a pass through.’ We would love to meet you. Have cof­fee on us, and let us tell you why we love it here!”

Chic Mer­can­tile is at 1523 N. Wabash Ave., and online at chicmer​can​tile​.com. They are open Tues­day-Fri­day from 10am to 6pm, and Sat­ur­day from 10am to 2pm.
