The Ides of March at the Mercantile

Greetings from downtown Todd!

We have a lot of exciting crumbs to tell you about!  First, welcome to the new look of the Todd Mercantile’s NewsCrumbs!  We had so many requests for photos, I decided to revamp the newsletter so they can be added without creating large files on your email.   Please let me know what you think, and if there is something you would like to see added.   You can still reply to me directly by hitting your reply button.

The Todd Mercantile is reopening this Friday, March 15th!  The hours are posted on the left column.  We will be open to our spring hours on March 22nd… these will be adjusted as the weather warms!

This Friday, dust off those dancing shoes, because in addition to re-opening for the season, we will be having our monthly Contra Dance!  See more details in the left hand column.

Also on the left hand column you will see other notable events happening in Todd that you’ll want to put on your calendar, like the Easter Bunny kayaking down the New to Todd Island Park where there will be an Easter Egg hunt for the young’uns – that happens Easter Sunday at 2pm!

The TCPO’s Free Summer Music concert schedule is below.  Check it out and be sure to put these dates on your summer calendar too!  Always great music and loads of fun for the whole family at a price you just can’t beat – FREE!

What a winter we’ve had here in Todd and it looks as though it’s going out with a bang!   This has to be one of the wettest winters we’ve had in quite a long time!  There have been a few wash outs in driveways and some  damage to Todd Railroad Grade Road, including one location where there is a break in the pavement (currently graveled).  Hopefully the DOT will have these fixed before long!

We are really excited to start our season here at the Mercantile!  We have lots of cool new merchandise this season – including Mountain Trolls, new made in America and North Carolina toys, Honey bee soaps and more!  We’ll still be working on revamping the space since we had a bit of a set back with Jack injuring his finger, but hopefully it will all be done soon enough!  Stop on by the Merc and check out the new stuff!

Hope to see you soon in Todd!
