Community Mercantile outlasts competition and changing marketplace

I used to go to the Merc all the time on my way home from work. I don't know if it was the business attire I wore or the fact that I never remembered to bring in my own paper bag from home, but I never found any of the staff to be friendly or helpful. They treated me with disdain and smugness until one day I changed my route and went to Natural Grocers. They were nice, friendly and much less expensive and much more clean! I haven't been back to the Merc since and don't plan to ever again. I would love to support a local business, but I don't think I should have to tolerate bad service for more money just to do so.

It's a nice store with better prices. I recommend it.

Your plan doesn't take into consideration what those 'marginally employable' people will do for food or bills between working at the fast food restaurant and getting hired at the grocery store.

Lawrence Walmart stores latest targets of false bomb threats

Did they evacuate the store or did they let everyone keep shopping, oblivious to any threats?
